Jul-06-17  Dave12: According to the computer, Rapport has reached a winning position after 21 moves. He had to find 22.Nf5! making nice use of black's kingside weakness, and the misplaced minor pieces. 22..exf4 23.h4! fxe3+ 24.Ke2 Qf4 25.Qe6+
white is forcing a Queen trade which leaves the black king helpless against the rooks.
Jul-06-17  kingfu: Rapport pulled off a classical move order job with an early a3. Nepom could have had a better game with an early g5 instead of Nc6.
Jul-07-17  FSR: <Dave12> 22.Nf5 would be cheating. Maybe you meant 22.Nf3.
Jul-07-17  Dave12: <FSR> of course Nf3 it is... thanks. The point is that he needs to improve his tactical skills. With his deep understanding of unusual positons he can be unstopable.
