|Dec-05-17|| ||sudoplatov: ...Rf8 was to back up ...Bf5 with threats on c2 so as to free the e-Pawn.|
|Dec-05-17|| ||An Englishman: Good Morning: Methinks the squares e3 and d4 will decide this game. Unless the Knight is doomed. Looking at 39.Nb4,Bd2; 40.Rxe4,Bxb4; 41.b3.|
|Dec-05-17|| ||Check It Out: 40.Re3 - white *had* to blockade that e pawn.|
|Dec-05-17|| ||Domdaniel: Now ...Re5 ...|
|Dec-05-17|| ||BOSTER: d5 and game is over.|
|Dec-05-17|| ||sudoplatov: Black's control of the f1-a6 diagonal seems decisive. White can only cover f2 and that allows the Black Rook to ignore White's Black Bishop.|
|Dec-05-17|| ||not not: Ffs i hate Italians|
|Dec-05-17|| ||Domdaniel: A neat ending: 42.g4 Rg5! 0-1
A nondraw! A win, a victory, a decisive game! Calloo, callay!
|Dec-05-17|| ||whiteshark: 42...Rg5!!, and we have a (new) leader. Congrats to Fabiano.|
|Dec-05-17|| ||Check It Out: Ahhh, the smell of blood !!|
|Dec-05-17|| ||chessgames.com: Thanks to everybody for your participation. Come back tomorrow and we'll watch Caruana vs Anand at 11:00am USA/Eastern.|
|Dec-05-17|| ||nekchess: Caruana was AntiCommonist in this one!|
|Dec-05-17|| ||Domdaniel: Life is tough in Drawville. One loss, and, like Karjakin, you're plunged into last place. While one win gives Caruana the lead.|
|Dec-05-17|| ||BOSTER: Rg5 -this is only the great artist can play, or who likes <CG>puzzle.|
|Dec-05-17|| ||not not: I demand this game to be replayed!|
|Dec-05-17|| ||Penguincw: Woo! A decisive game.|
|Dec-05-17|| ||Domdaniel: White wins: 0
Black wins: 1
Allez les Noirs!
|Dec-05-17|| ||SirRuthless: Great preparation. Caruana is proving to be unplayable in several Sicilian systems from Najdorf to Taimanov with both colors.|
|Dec-05-17|| ||blackdranzer: This game has almost refuted the Qf3 line. White wastes two tempi with the queen to stop black from casting , or making it difficult...and black gives up totally on casting k.s and makes many pawn moves on that side of the board. I think black had a very significant advantage out of the opening .|
|Dec-06-17|| ||HeMateMe: 42...R-g5!|
|Dec-06-17|| ||sac 4 mate: After move 15 it's tough to see where White went wrong. Would 17. exf6 followed by h3 have turned out better for Karjakin?|
|Dec-07-17|| ||Jambow: Can't even classify this game, interesting motifs including almost continually meeting attack with counter attack to advance ones pieces a step. Just always feel like Caruana was getting a little something until he had enough, perhaps Capablanca comes to mind.|
|Dec-07-17|| ||Jambow: Fabiano actually punishes Karjakin a bit for castling by consentrating his forces centrally and not doing likewise. By move 21 the sense of impending demise for the attacking player becomes evident. Karjakin's forces are on both ends of the board which can assure the win in certain situations but this is countered by the fact that Caruana has so much central force besides being an exchange up. His central pawns with artillary support Caruana shouts Veni Vidi Vici and conquers London where the spirit of Chamberlain lives strong.|
To come and give the most endearing quote matching his proclimation with action Caruana may have saved London by Conquest.
|Dec-07-17|| ||Richard Taylor: Good game by Black. Strong finish. The Bastrikov is not always easy to play. I don't know about the Qf3 line.|
|Dec-10-17|| ||Clement Fraud: <blackdranzer:> <This game has almost refuted the Qf3 line.>|
Is it likely that white could have saved himself the wasted moves with his Queen by playing 10.h3 (and if 10... Nh5 11.Qh2 ... with f2-f4 to come)?
