  luzhin: Fantastically imaginative play by Liem. Objectively 18.Qb3 was best, but 18.Bxb7 unbalanced matters still more, in favour of the stronger player.
Sep-04-17  fisayo123: Superb play indeed.
Sep-05-17  tuttifrutty: LQL is the most under rated 2700+ player. No question he belongs to the elite.

Just watch...look and listen. You heard it from me first.

Sep-18-17  Strelets: I've got to pay more attention to this guy. Very impressive game.
Sep-18-17  Ironmanth: Wow. Blown away by the ideas White demonstrates to just flat-out dominate Black in this game. Exceptional!
