Jun-01-18  Ulhumbrus: After 17 Rac1, 17 Rfc1 or 17 Bf3 White is two moves ahead of Black in development.

  ChessHigherCat: Now if white plays e4, what does black play? Qc5 attacking the N? Nb4 protecting the pawn?

White can also play Nf5 here which has the advantage of the sneakiness factor.

Jun-01-18  HeMateMe: After black gets his Bishop to b7 white doesn't seem to have anything if rooks are exchanged on the c file.

  ChessHigherCat: Aha, if e4, Qb4 for sure.

  Marmot PFL: e4 Nb4 seems good for black, don't think white wants to change the structure that way unless e5 works which i doubt.

What sound did Liren's bicycle fail to make?

  An Englishman: Good Morning: 17.e4,Nb4 looks unproductive; not only does the Knight cover the b6 pawn, it takes away c6 from the White Knight. Weakening d4 and f4 might also prove problematic, but this seems more doubtful. If White can't find something good by move 20, this will probably become a very boring game.
Jun-01-18  Dave12: I don't think there is a real game going on between those two. It looks like one of the days when Carlsen is well prepared to kill the game with the black pieces, which is something that always works for him if he really wants.
Jun-01-18  Ulhumbrus: 18 Nf5?! is premature if it fizzles out and Black manages to catch up in development. In that case it may be better for White to increase his lead in development eg by 18 Rac1

  An Englishman: Good Morning: I forget the currency exchange rates, <offramp>, does that equal one lire or one yen?
Jun-01-18  BOSTER: I guess <Gypsy> was right.Looks like draw.

MVL offers an exchange sac which Karjakin declined. Not surprised he declined as black had good compensation for material but now white has positional advantage instead.

  Marmot PFL: Nakamura - This was a pretty boring game.

  Penguincw: With this draw, Carlsen will still be the sole leader of this tournament after R4 has finished, so tomorrow's broadcast will be yet another Carlsen game - Carlsen vs. Anand.

  thegoodanarchist: With Carlsen at +2 and everyone else at 0, it makes sense for MC to draw, especially with Black. This puts pressure on the others to win, if they want to challenge for the trophy

  perfidious: Good example of why the classical lines of the QGD were given short shrift for decades by enterprising Black players.

  Marmot PFL: "Nakamura was all mouth and no trousers". Daniel King. Never heard that expression before, guess it's more common in England than the USA
