'If the tournament isn't going your way, it's until the end'. Baadur Jobava's performance at the ACP Golden Classic tournament can be described approximately in that way. The Georgian grandmaster didn't feel anything other than suffering, which he created for himself, especially with the move 13...е6, during his game against Emil Sutovsky.
