  An Englishman: Good Morning: White has slowed down in his play--doesn't seem like a sign that he likes his game. So, while we're waiting, does anyone have any thoughts on the Women's World Cup, starting today with France v. S. Korea?

  whiteshark: ♕♙:♖♖ + oc♗
White pieces are not well coordinated.
Black's c-passer could further prevent white's activity.

Oc♗ help the attac♔ side (proportionately) more.

  An Englishman: Good Morning: Looking at 25.Bb2 with the plan of Re2, Rae1 and e4. White needs a passed pawn, and he needs to blockade the c4 pawn. If ...Ba6 threatening ...c3, simply Bc3. Black's counter to this plan might consist of ...Qe6-d5-d3 to harass a Bishop on c3.
Jun-06-19  BOSTER: <Whiteshark>< white pieces are not good coordinated>.After B b2 B d4 he is OK.
Jun-06-19  Ulhumbrus: White's king may come under attack after ...g4. Mamedyarov may lose this game.

  An Englishman: Good Morning: Intended to write that Aronian should play 27...Qe4. Perhaps now he should play 28...Qxg4 when he has hamstrung White's King side pawn majority. Black might have whatever advantage exists in the position, but White can always attempt to set up a fortress.

  Check It Out: I'm surprised Mame played 29.Ba1; I expected 29.Bd4 with an active bishop.

Jun-06-19  Ulhumbrus: A loss for White suggests that the evaluation is that the queen is stronger than the two rooks if White is backward in development because then White is unable to make the rooks count.

  An Englishman: Good Morning: As Mark Ruffalo said in The Avengers, "Well, this looks...horrible." Maybe the time has come to append a "??" to 17.c5.
