  Sokrates: Congrats to Giri - a much needed victory for him, I guess. But thanks from us spectators should go to Harikrishna for the +5 -3 leaving him only a lousy half point behind the winner and in front of the less glorious army of drawmasters.
May-03-19  Nisjesram: There were 11 decisive games in all.

8 of those decisive games were of harikrishna.


May-03-19  Troller: Hari will be playing the Sigeman tournament in Malmö, Sweden, starting today:

  Sokrates: Yes, he's a hero, I almost began to sing his name. :-)
May-03-19  Nisjesram: : Many Indians fans considered Pentala Harikrishna’s play similar to yours, especially when he won four straight games from rounds 3-7 at the Shenzhen Masters. Did you get a chance to see any of his games?

Carlsen: Yeah, he definitely played brilliantly; the way he converted small advantages was extremely impressive. I can see the similarities there. He is somebody who has become a lot better in the last few years. We’ll see where he will be.
