Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-21-17  hudapri: One strong way to play vs Seirawan system (5.Bd3)
Oct-24-17  Everett: Seems to me Seirawan had a solid advantage out of the opening even after the first 20+ moves... Think he mishandled his DSB. I would have tried to find a way to sit a N on f4.

In any case, nice attack by Grischuk.

Oct-24-17  SChesshevsky: Kudos to Yasser for playing in the blitz championship and having very few draws.

Here it looks like from 17. Bxf4 to 21...Qg6 black really improved his piece position.

White's probably going to have a better endgame but it's hard for me to see how to exchange the way there without a disadvantage.

Wondering if Seirawan had a chance maybe somewhere between moves 17 and say 25, to keep some but slight winning chances but mostly make a draw very likely?
