Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-24-13  Overgod: Lovely and precise endgame play from Ivanchuk!

It seems as if he squeezed every last drop out of the endgame position, until Hao just simply collapsed.

Sep-24-13  chesssalamander: Love 44. Bc6!
Sep-24-13  MarkusKann: 55..Kg4?? what?
Sep-25-13  poslednieje: 24 Bd6? is a bad move. Exchanging the rooks and transposing to an endgame of bishop pair versus bishop/knight would give a slight edge.
Sep-26-13  beenthere240: <MarkusKann> What else -- got any good squares for the bishop?
Sep-26-13  haydn20: With 35-38 Ivanchuk offers a repetition. Wang thinks there is more in the position and starts an ill-advised pawn attack with 38...g6 and is condignly punished.
Sep-30-13  rotgut: Very interesting twist at the end. I don't think even Ivanchuck saw the mate threat 55...Bg4 56.Nd6 mate. Because if he had, he could have played 53.Rh6.
Sep-11-16  nummerzwei: After the standard 34...g5 Black would actually have had some advantage.
