Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-15-13  Juninho: actually a great game by Balogh he was very well prepared with his new theory beggining 18..., Rc8! I was wondered about Aronian's play.
Kf2 looks "more than interesting", but obviously he has not got any compesation for it. Verõczi gives 29. Qd1?!, but contrary to that it is hard to blame because anyhing else could be dissatisfied, too anyway I think. I will be very corious if White develop a good strategy in order to make difficulties after Rc8 for black.

  whiteshark: <Juninho> Evgeny Postny annotated this game for chessbase. He thought that <17...Rc8?N> will not find any followers and that <17...Rd8> as in V Mikhalevski vs Harikrishna, 2008 showed the optimal way to play for both sides.
