Calculation of the day

Here it may seems like Grischuk blunder. That nothing can go wrong with 12…e4 in fact Aronian thought this way and played 12…e4. There is a rule that says we must stop calculation when there is no more forcing moves. It makes a lot of sense. Sometimes there exist some hidden forcing moves we miss and that is exactly what happened to Aronian here.

    You certainly have to be flexible in your thinking. The last thing I would have imagined is that I might be able to trap Black’s queen after forcing it to f5 to maintain its protection of the e4-pawn.
