  An Englishman: Good Evening: I like how Svidler maneuvered his pieces through 64...Ne6 so that he secured his pawns and his pieces. Is it my imagination, or has this tournament featured a lot of pawn sacrifices that turned to be not quite sound?
Aug-14-16  CountryGirl: Two great endgames this round, thanks to Aronian and Svidler. Highly interesting, both of them.

  Sokrates: Yes, it wasn't an easy task and requiered a lot of technical skill to convert the two pawns into victory. Well done by Svidler, who kept a steady hand in a situation when his psychological self-esteem must have suffered from his bad results in the tournament.

  Ulhumbrus: Instead of 16 Ne5, 16 Re1 unpins the N on f3.

If the attack on the a file by 23 Rda2 is going to fail this suggests playing to occupy the d file instead 23 f4

Instead of 24 f4, 24 Bc3 seems consistent, otherwise why has White doubled his rooks on the a pawn?

29 Bc6 is an unfortunate choice if the bishop is going to turn out to be out of play on b3.

The move 41 Bd7 suggests that White can do nothing better with his bishop. In that case one alternative to this is 40 Bxc6 gaining opposite coloured bishops
