Jul-16-17  Pasker: Svidler played Hou Yifan like an Amateur. Complete domination.
Jul-16-17  Brian.elkhoury: Maybe 26 .. Qf5 is good?
Jul-17-17  siggemannen: According to chessbomb's computer, Svidler never made any mistakes at all, just playing the #1-moves. Never seen that happen before in a winning game

  Ulhumbrus: From moves 16 to 21 Svidler offers Adams a pawn sacrifice on c3 for six moves in a row and Adams declines each time

The move 24 Rd1 allowing his king side pawns to get smashed but developing the rook towards the attack brings Spassky to mind.

<siggemannen: According to chessbomb's computer, Svidler never made any mistakes at all, just playing the #1-moves. Never seen that happen before in a winning game> This suggests that Svidler's knowledge and skill is sufficient for him to find the right moves to prosecute the final attack in the style of Spassky. However Bent Larsen said that if a strong player were to make a choice, the outcome would not be a matter of style, and that if a strong player like Petrosian were to conclude that a move in the style of Tal was the right move, his choice would be that move.

  Ulhumbrus: I stand corrected. It is Yifan Hou playing Black and not Adams.
