  ChessHigherCat: 28. f5!! Aronian's a genius, he deserves to be world champion for once, I would have no problem with that.

By the way, does anybody else find it ridiculous to use the abbreviation "WC" for world champion(ship)?

Jun-16-17  bcokugras: WCS might be.
Jun-16-17  lupko: Except the Kramnik-Topalov WC
Jun-16-17  falso contacto: Big Vlad was a bit unconfortable in the postmortem analysis. Aronian wasn't able to explain pretty much anything.
Jun-16-17  falso contacto: It was like: "In this position you have nothing, and there you have nothing and I just missed that... you have nothing". Oh, maybe you do.

  SpaceRunner: falso contacto: Aronian just played logical moves and had a nice space advantage early on.. Cannot be the best move by black...Aronian has a nice positional sense..
Jun-21-17  Moszkowski012273: Some missed shots but cool game...
Jun-21-17  RookFile: Semi-Tarrasch is a tricky opening. I'm not sure that Bb4+ and Bxd2 immediately is what you're supposed to do.
Aug-17-17  Everett: Kramnik seems to often say "you have nothing" during post-mortem losses. Strange
