  Penguincw: < Classical games: Anish Giri beat Ding Liren 2 to 0, with 14 draws. >

When Giri has white, he's +1,-0,=8.

Giri may not be undefeated against Carlsen anymore, but he is against Ding Liren!

Jan-19-19  gokusano: This will be the law of averages telling it's all over. Giri today is different from Giri of yesterday. But Liren has improved a lot since then. Go Ding!

  Sargon: Nothing to see here folks—except for a perfectly up-to-date and glitch-free™ <Live Chess Broadcast from>. Please remain calm...
Jan-19-19  Saksham: It seems like Kramnik has probably prepared something for Anand. He is playing in a not-so conventional way.
Jan-19-19  Ulhumbrus: <Saksham: It seems like Kramnik has probably prepared something for Anand. He is playing in a not-so conventional way.> Perhaps Kramnik believes that his bishop pair and greater space give him greater liberty to expose himself by advancing his king side pawns and to castle by hand and to some extent they do, but one may question whether they do it to that extent. Whether he is right remains to be seen.
Jan-19-19  Ulhumbrus: The move 21 Rdc1 supports the move Nc6. One way to hinder that idea is to obstruct the rook by 21...Bc5. Ding Liren makes another choice, removing his king's bishop from attack from a N on c6 and pinning White's N to White's queen's bishop.

  ChessHigherCat: White's DSB isn't really pinned because white could play 22. Nd7 Bxf4 23. Nxf6+ gxf6 24. gxf4 (for what it's worth)
Premium Chessgames Member
  ChessHigherCat: Now 24. Nxf6+ Kf7 25. Bh5+ King moves 26. Bxe8
Premium Chessgames Member
  ChessHigherCat: SF says it's best to just play 24. gxf4 but I like 24. Nxf6+ because if Kg7 Nh5+ K moves and Nxf4
Jan-19-19  pajaste: Move order changes to Queens Indian Defence sort of opening/structure
