Levon,Somehow I get the impression that you can foollw someone into a revolving door yet somehow manage to emerge ahead of them. When you are in good form, as you plainly were at Wijk aan Zee, it seems that you have an uncanny ability to set trap after nasty trap for your opponents. Even if only a small percentage of these tricks work against the world elite, you set so many that they often ultimately make the key difference in your games. Do you consider this a distinctive style of your play? How often do you purposefully forgo the most precise move positionally in order to create a subtle trap? And, in your opinion, would such an approach be more or less advisable for players at lower rating levels?
