  Sally Simpson: Giri testing Adams to see if he belongs in 'Giri Draw Club'.

After 3 rounds Giri is already the sole draw leader sitting comfortably in his favourite mid-table spot.

The punters can see they are fighting draws but he is going to have to shake off this 'draw master' tag else the invites will dry up.

Dec-12-16  Ulhumbrus: If 17...d5 works this suggests that it counts as a threat and that instead of 17 Be1, 17 Nc3-d5 is better
Dec-12-16  lentil: I don't understand why organizers keep inviting this AMish GirL to their tournaments.
