Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-21-08  like a GM: Such a nice win! The art of pressure demonstrated by a mostly attacking player.
Oct-23-08  arsen387: Simply an overwhelming game by Levon. I hope Kamsky won't play like this against Topalov, otherwise he will envy Kramnik for losing only 3 games out of 6. This was more like a Levon Aronian - arsen387 game :) No chances for blacks
Oct-23-08  hedgeh0g: Complete annihilation. It seems like Aronian is becoming quite acquainted with the English, which is a breath of fresh air from all the 1. d4 games.
Mar-22-09  ajile: 7..c5 seems safer and better for Black than 7..Bg7. Black needs to take care of the q-side.
