   May-01-17 Eljanov vs Kramnik, 2017 (replies)
mistreaver: Instead of 39 Qc2?, it appears that 39 Qb2 would win. Although it is hard to allow the check on d3 in time trouble, a sample line goes: 39 Qb2 Qd3+ 40 Kg1 Qe4 [DIAGRAM] And now 41 f3! Qxf3 42 Qg2! [DIAGRAM] forced a queen exchange, and transposes into winning ...

mistreaver: My analysis of some key games of the tournament:
   Apr-30-17 R Wojtaszek vs Mamedyarov, 2017 (replies)
mistreaver: <Ulhumbrus> is right. 13... Qd7!? is a serious alternative. The point is not only the attack on queen, but also the following: after 13.. Qd7!? 14 Qh4 h5! [DIAGRAM] White now can't go 15 Rg1 due to 15... Qg4! and Black is probably winning. I made full analysis of the game
   Apr-25-17 Karjakin vs Topalov, 2017 (replies)
mistreaver: There were several very interesting moments in this fantastic game. For instance, at move 17, the preparatory 17 a4 was worth considering. After 17... a6 18 Ng5 Qxe5 loses immediately: [DIAGRAM] 19 Nd5! (taking advantage of the undefended bishop on b6) Qxb2 20 Nxb6 Rb8 21 Nc4 ...
   Apr-23-17 R Wojtaszek vs Topalov, 2017 (replies)
mistreaver: I am of opinion that Topalov's 16... d4? was premature. Rado could have replied 17 e4! and after 17... 0-0 18 0-0 Rfe8 19 f3 White has a nice position: [DIAGRAM] Instead, 16... g5!?, quietly improving the position, might have been more appropriate 17 Rc2 Kf8!? 18 0-0 Ng4 19 h3 ...

mistreaver: My two percent about Korchnoi career, with some key games analyzed in detail:
   Apr-23-17 W So vs Mamedyarov, 2017 (replies)
mistreaver: It would appear that on the 31th move Black has the stronger 31... Kb8. It is not entirely clear why that is a better move, but let us continue the variation with 32 b4 Bd4 33 Qd3 as in the game: [DIAGRAM] Now, Black can continue with 33... g4! because after 34 b5 f3+ 35 gxf3
   Mar-01-17 Mamedyarov vs Yifan Hou, 2017
mistreaver: <Boomie> In your variation, instead of 24 Rxb1 there is 24 Bxe7 Rxe8 25 Bxc5 Nxc5 26 Rxb1 [DIAGRAM] And White is a clear pawn up Detailed analysis of the game is available in the round 9 report at my blog:
   Feb-26-17 Li Chao vs Eljanov, 2017 (replies)
mistreaver: Instead of 20... Qa5, 20... Nd5 was perfectly possible for Black. [DIAGRAM] The point is that 21 Nb5 is met by 21... Qd3 and if 22 Rfd1 then 22... Rac8 is strong [DIAGRAM] Detailed analysis of the game available at:
   Feb-26-17 I Nepomniachtchi vs Li Chao, 2017
mistreaver: Instead of 25... g5, 25... Rf6 was interesting defensive try, forcing White to display some precision: 26 Rh1 g5 [DIAGRAM] Here White has to find 27 f4! in order to win. One sample variation goes 27... gxf4 28 g4! Rg6 29 Bc2! Rxg4+ 30 Kf2! [DIAGRAM] And White wins. Full ...
