Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-12-13  Doniez: If the White Queen takes, then the black Knight moves to g3+ and forks the Queen! Nice Bishop sac at move 26 that starts the endgame for LQL
Aug-12-13  Marmot PFL: after 23 f3 there are too many weak squares around white's king.
Aug-12-13  GalileoPiccolino: This two game mini series between these two Asian GMs shows the disparity of talent between the two, plus the previous games played before in some other tournament, tipping the scale in favor of LQL.

No sweat for the Vietnamese gold fish versus the Filipino sardine.

Aug-12-13  GalileoPiccolino: Look @ the game Ding Liren vs Barbosa,
Chess Olympiad 2012. Can't take a look at that demolition job, it is ugly!

Hurry up sardine, it is way to go so double time, the Chinese and Vietnamese are turning in to gold fishes!

Aug-13-13  geniokov: < GalileoPiccolino: Look @ the game Ding Liren vs Barbosa, Chess Olympiad 2012. Can't take a look at that demolition job, it is ugly!>...As ugly as how Berlusconi treated your country "Always party! Bonga-bonga!" hahaha!
Aug-13-13  Dr. Funkenstein: great calculation by Le Qiang Liem with a sweet finish

What if white played 26. Bg1 to cover h2 instead of 26. Bc5

Aug-13-13  move13: Hey Galileo/geniokov, dont be too harsh with your description man. Chess is not winning all the time. There is still one Filipino GM on line. Dont be so sharp on your words, you're way back racists. Wait until a demolition will come to your favorites, after all if you both are good, you must be here in this world cup yourselves. Uneducated people dont learn to appreciate, and those are the two of you idiots.
