Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-12-16  Marmot PFL: The white bishops dominate the board. White had a couple chances to trade bishops with some advantage but retained them until the end.

Almost flawless game by Kramnik, who is either at or near his rating peak at age 41.

Sep-12-16  Bhoopnath: Todays Kramnik looking more then younger then adhiban.
Sep-12-16  Ulhumbrus: 11...Bxf3 parts with the biahop pair, never an asset to concede lightly.

  Swapmeet: A beautifully calculated finish.
Sep-13-16  Mudphudder: Positional masterpiece. Yet again.
Sep-21-16  KnightOwl2: After the Olympiad you have to wonder whether there is not someone else eligible to contend with Magnus.
Sep-22-16  capafischer1: So much for kramnik being over the hill he has now tied his highest-ever rating of 2817 at the tender age of 41. That is good for second highest in the world. His pieces coordinated beautifully in this game.
