Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-10-17  Dave12: Never give this guy a pair of bishops.
Oct-11-17  Andrew Chapman: Instructive for me that taking with the e pawn on d5 makes white vulnerable to a Black pawn attack on the king side with f5.
Oct-11-17  Strelets: <Andrew Chapman> Pushing the e- and f- pawns is a favorite idea of mine in the 6.Be2 lines. White normally plays a4 pretty early, preventing or at least slowing down the normal Najdorf queenside counterplay and encouraging Black to play elsewhere.

  offramp: Is there a word for a long series of Zwischenzugs? There probably is. Those crazy Germans have a word for everything! Yes, even noodles.

White has just played 30. Bxg6 and he may have expected 30...Bxg6.

But Ding Liren played
31. Rxf2 Bxf2+
32. Kxf2 Qh4+
33. Kf1 f3!
34. gxf3 and now, finally 34...hxg6.
