  Stonehenge: Was white in time trouble? 37. e5 seems rather strong.

  Marmot PFL: At move 37 it was hard to believe that the game would be drawn in only 4 more moves, but white found a way.

That was winning (6.74 ), in fact.

Jan-17-17  Amulet: I came to know the breaking news of the hour, that Giri, again made a brilliant job of methodically converting his huge advantage to a magnificent drawn game!


Jan-18-17  SimplicityRichard: Too much caution from Giri is not winning him won games.#
Jan-18-17  5hrsolver: According to Chessbomb Giri had only 2 minutes on his clock before the 37th move. He had to make 4 moves in two minutes. Andreikin had 6 minutes at that point.
Jan-18-17  WorstPlayerEver: Carlsen does not miss such crushers. That's the difference.

  OhioChessFan: Giri should have seen that in blitz, much less with 2 minutes left.
Jan-18-17  dumbgai: Giri was a beast when he emerged as a top junior player several years ago. Now he's the one-stop shop for draw-related jokes like Leko used to be.
