Kibitzer's Corner
May-30-10  chessgames2010: 54. Rxe7 Kxe7 That was a surprising exchange of Rook for a knight that forced a quick end. Engines considered it a sub-optimal move, yet it was very effective.
May-30-10  Atking: A smooth performance from Giri. Effortless is a trade mark of champion. 16...c5 before it becomes too late. 17.e4 Be7 looks good enough.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Giri could teach Anand and Kramnik a few things about the now super-popular Catalan. One possible finish is 60...Kd8; 61.b7,Kc7 (Ke7; 62.Kb6); 62.b6+,Kd8; 63.Kd6 and sooner or later Black must abandon control of c7.

  whiteshark: Worth to study in depth.
Oct-26-10  Atking: More I see this game more I like it. Black didn't make any mistake but very thematically white stopped c5 20.Ne1!

<28.Bxa6! "I had to make sure my bishop would not be trapped. I thought for a long time about it, and decided that with Rc8+! and Ra8 I would be able to get it out.">
