Analysing the draw with Shak:
|Aug-02-18|| ||JimNorCal: Great photos and congrats to GM Rausis for his resurgence.|
Oddly, in the first photo Rausis looks tall and rangy across from Shakh. Yet, in the 2nd photo, he seems shrunken and Shakh looks both taller and thicker. I guess the draw took a lot out of Igors!
