Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-05-19  Fanques Fair: Brilliant game from Caruana. Was it all opening preparation or did he find this combination at the board ?
Jun-05-19  sudoplatov: According to Chess365, the first new move was 15.Nc4. Other games wen 15. Bf5 for draws.
Jun-06-19  YesChess1010: That may be the case about there having never been a new move PLAYED past 15 in this game, but I absolutely feel that Fabi had up to or at least the first 22 moves prepared

  tpstar: Very nice R&P endgame to convert the win.

MVL has fantastic results as Black in the Sicilian = Repertoire Explorer: Maxime Vachier-Lagrave (black)

Jun-06-19  Ulhumbrus: 43 Kb3! threatens to gain a lead in development for White's king and half a dozen moves later on 49 Kd5 White is playing a king ahead. This suggests 43...Kf5 so as to get Black's king into play.
Jun-08-19  Roark: Sudoplatov meant to say that the first new move was 15.Bc4* I was reading it and it was not helping me enjoy Najdorf theory.
Jun-08-19  sudoplatov: Which shows why I'm not a grandmaster.
