Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-03-19  Atking: Incredible! Sure it's just Blitz but MVL won it 1.5 ahead of the next one... Magnus Carlsen and Levon Aronian *I'm trying to imagine how many page will be wrote if such result has been of So. Except Nakamura Hikaru all the world best are there. Such lead in only 9 rounds should impress. I really wish that Maxime will play all the tournament confidently!
Jun-04-19  lost in space: Grishuk on last place is the biggest surprise for me.
Jun-04-19  torrefan: not when you realize he was tired from his previous tournament

Jun-04-19  frogbert: Grischuk himself stated recently that he thinks he's best at classical time controls these days.
