Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-29-17  fisayo123: Devastating from Liren. The piece play in the early middlegame to the use of the bishop pair to bind blacks position, then the break on the kingside, shifting the focus of play to the other side of the board and finishing it with a thematic sacrifice (which was rejected). Impressive.
Mar-29-17  protonchess: Another bad case of contemptus bishopus :-)
Mar-29-17  Imran Iskandar: Continuous pressure then a nice combination. As mentioned, the bishops (as it had all tournament) were instrumental to the win.
Mar-29-17  Strelets: Classic play by White. He ties Black up on the queenside in order to sacrifice the exchange and open the opposing king up on the other side of the board. One almost involuntarily recalls Fischer's quote about tactics coming from positional superiority.
Mar-30-17  ex0duz: Nice Dual Bishop vs Dual Knight duel. What a jewel of a game between the current top two chinese players! lol

Must of been a painful loss for Yu..
