Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-06-14  Poisonpawns: sweet revenge for his defeat a year before in the same opening
Jan-28-14  Everett: An interesting decision by Adams with 16.axb5!? With the pawn there, it takes away all of the sensible retreat squares for Black's Nb4, while freeing up the a4 square for his N. From a4, the N hits c5 and b6. A nice positional idea here.

After neutralizing pressure on the c-file, Adams systematically gains space on the K-side, and to make progress with his other pieces, he exchanges off the lame Nb4 on move 46. Caruana maybe hastens his downfall with his 47th, but the squeeze was only getting to get worse with Bd2 and f- and b- pawn pushes coming.

Mar-05-16  ToTheDeath: The Spider at his best. great positional squeeze.
