Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-18-14  Doniez: My comment yesterday was "Fabiano should learn how to get some draw in this tournament" and today he drew.
Jan-18-14  john barleycorn: <Doniez> took him 130+ moves to appreciate your comment :-).
Jan-18-14  MarkFinan: I wonder why it took so long for white to realise that this was only a draw, because this game is at least 30 moves too long!
Jan-18-14  elisseus: Fabiano won the strategic, Harekrishna lost the tactics to realice on the board his material superiority, the game was an incredible example for the study of endgame. Nice game.
Jan-19-14  FamilyTree: Caruana is a tough defender.
Jan-19-14  Doniez: At move 41, Fabiano decided to exchange one of this rooks for the white square bishop of his opponent. At that vey moment, engine evaluations were approx -1,5. IMHO I had the perception that Fabiano was sure to draw the game, by having avoided Pentala to play the endgame with a bishop pair. As the "old and wise" Gelfand said not later than 2 days ago "engines are irrelevant". And I think that engine evaluations of this game is the proof.
Jan-23-14  QueentakesKing: <MarkFinan> Simple. Blunder and time pressure.
