Kibitzer's Corner
Premium Chessgames Member Looks interesting, but with our luck today this should be drawn in a few more moves :)

  An Englishman: Good Morning: Thanks again, CG! At least you keep trying!

  hoodrobin: It is not a matter of luck, I guess. :-)
May-29-18  BOSTER: <CG> but this is draw too.
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: The game in its totalité is a good one.
May-29-18  Octavia: we're having the greatest weather in Scotland, not a drop of rain for ~ 4 weeks & temperature ~ 26 C - how's yours?
Premium Chessgames Member <<CG> but this is draw too.> Well, it was more exciting when we tuned in, when there were minor pieces on the board.

Well, that concludes today's games. Stop back tomorrow at 10:30am USA/Eastern and we'll cover Carlsen's game against Aronian.

May-29-18  ClockPunchingMonkey: Forgive my ignorance, but after 39.....Ke5, why does white not play 40. Rxf7 and go a pawn up?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Louben: I share your ignorance. Is the 39...Ke5 move a kind of grandmaster's joke in a totally drawn position? If you ask to stockfish, it doesn't appreciate much this move which seems to give a small advantage to white after the capture of the pawn (+0.64) contrary to a more classical move like 39...Ra6 which seems to lead to complete equality (=0.00).

  whiteshark: <Louben> Setting the King on a central square after the draw has been agreed is well known 'common joke' on DGT electronic boards.
