Man, the camera is RIGHT there, in their faces! Nowadays a Super GM has to trim his nose hair before every game, lest it get broadcast around the world.

  Stonehenge: 11. Nxd8 = D Blagojevic vs L A Muhammad, 2016.

  Mateo: Very accurate defence for Black. In some variations, White can win a7 but Black will win a2 and b2. So I guess Black should hold this one.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Mateo: After 20.Bb5 actually played Black could play 20...Bxa2 21.Ra4 Bb3 22.Rxa7 Rc2.
Apr-19-18  frogbert: Doesn't look like this line, after 11. Nxd8 Rxd8 offers white any real winning chances against a strong player.
Premium Chessgames Member Well, that was thrilling! Any requests for another game?

  morfishine: < Well, that was thrilling! Any requests for another game?> How bout Topalov - Radjabov ?
Apr-19-18  frogbert: Looks like Ding-Wojtaszek has the most potential right now. Topalov-Radjabov will be a draw, and I suspect exchanges and simplifications in both Giri-Karjakin and Navara-Mamedov, even if the latter looks interesting at the moment.
