  HeMateMe: good timing, give back the exchange to break up the defensive point at b6-c7. White will have 3-4 pawns for the piece.
Jan-29-17  Octavia: with the terrible political news from USA - do we now boycott everything from there?

  Ron: I have a hypothesis that games with a material imbalance, like this one where one side has an extra minor piece but the other side has two pawns more, is always interesting. Even if they end in a draw.

  Marmot PFL: looks like wei yi might also take a draw, which means a large victory margin for So

  Marmot PFL: I don't hear Seirawan complaining and he might not even be able to return to the USA.
Jan-29-17  scholes: very exciting game with deep ideas

  Ron: <MArmot PFL> I'm no legal expert, but I think that Seirawan is a US Citizen so the Executive Order will not apply to him. And it just got reported that the Trump Administration says that the ban does not apply to Green Card holders going forward. If an exception is made for a green card holder, I would think that the order does not apply to a US citizen.
Jan-29-17  Ulhumbrus: An alternative to 24...Nc5 is 24...Nd7-f8 clearing the square d7 for the manoeuvre Ra8-d8-d7

An alternative to 26...Qg6 allowing the fork Ne7 is 26...Nd7-f8 clearing the square d7 for the manoeuvre Ra8-d8-d7

Jan-29-17  SirRuthless: The ban did apply to citizens and green card holders alike but the federal courts kicked Trump and Bannon in the a$$ because the EO was illegal and so they were forced to relax the ban. The protests got the attention of the ACLU which filed emergency motions in court to challenge the constitutionality of the EOs.

Jan-29-17  Paarhufer: A turning point in the game seems to be 40.♖1e4. Up to this move, White had the momentum. Changing the pawn structure with 40.f5 ♘e5 41. ♖e4 looks bold, and is not the decision you want to make with the move before the time control. But it would have killed Black's counterplay on the h-file, which cost White an exchange in the game.
