  keypusher: <tamar: Wesley So is getting good chances now to beat Radjabov>

I knew Radjabov was going to have a hell of a time holding that ending against So, but the way White has played it has been surprising to me (but not to Stockfish).

  watwinc: Am I seeing things? Yes, I am - the old familiar flaw of vision. After Qf5 ef the pawn has moved from e5 and the bishop on d5 now protects the f6 pawn. The sort of mistake Znosko-Borovsky ruefully admitted to.

  tamar: <keypusher> I am slowly coming to the conclusion that So is very, very good. But he sometimes rushes in the ending, so it is not foregone.

  keypusher: <blunderclap: <So - Radja 37..g4> Must have been time trouble.>

It was the engine's second choice (after ...h5, and ...g4 follows a few moves later). The c-pawn was doomed anyway.

  Marmot PFL: Strong attacking game by the Polish GM. It looks tough to defend black's game once white gets g4 in. Maybe pushing the h pawn wasn't the best.
Apr-29-17  Muttley101: This game makes no sense whatsoever.

  tamar: Wojtaszek said he was shown this, and asked what you did after 15...Qd7 and they said, just play 16 Qh4

So he knew that it was good, but did not know the details.

It had been played in a game C Lupulescu vs V Nedilko, 2013 1-0 but the second player was 250 points less Elo.

Mamedyarov also knew of the move 15...Qd7 after being shown it by another player, but did not know, and was not told it could be answered 16 Qh4

  Marmot PFL: Black could play 16...Bf6 but 17 Bg5 Bxg5 18 Nxg5 still gives white an attack.

The opening doesn't follow the usual Grunfeld move order as white delays d4 until move 6. This reduces black's options as 5...Nxc3 6 Qc3 attacks Rh8 which is not typical in the Grunfeld.

  HeMateMe: 30. B-e3! Opens the d file. Is there a forced mating net here? Isn't black's king safe on e6?
Apr-29-17  TheBish: I was wondering what was wrong with 23. hxg6 (threatening mate), and then I saw it: 23. hxg6?? Qxf3+! 24. Kxf3 fxg5+, winning the queen back with a two piece profit! No GM is going to fall for that, except maybe under extreme time pressure.

  offramp: <offramp: There is another heavyweight encounter tonight. The Brit Anthony Joshua takes on Wladimir Klitschko in a BANFF at Wembley. Klitschko is 41, 6ft 6in and weighs seventeen stone, 2lb!! But that is chicken feed! Joshua is 27, also 6ft 6, but weighs 17st 12lb.

But THAT'S NOTHING!! Vladimir Kramnik is 7ft 4 inches tall and weighs 18st 9lb!>

Despite Kramnik's size, he was no match for Anthony Joshua. Joshua annihilated the Russian in the 11th round.

  HeMateMe: why is Klitschko still fighting, at age 41? Don't these people make enough money to retire, instead of getting their heads busted and become zombies at age 50?

  Ulhumbrus: If the attack 12 Qh3 is unsound it is up to Black to find the right way to answer it. One alternative 12...h5 is 12...h6 and on 13 Nf3 an alternative to 13...h5 is 13...Qd7 attacking White's queen.
Apr-30-17  mistreaver: <Ulhumbrus> is right. 13... Qd7!? is a serious alternative. The point is not only the attack on queen, but also the following: after 13.. Qd7!? 14 Qh4 h5!

White now can't go 15 Rg1 due to 15... Qg4! and Black is probably winning.
