Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-04-14  fgh: After a not very convincing performance at TATA, Rapport exhibits some fine endgame technique in this game.
Feb-05-14  iking: a drubbing of the future world champion .... fine technique

  keypusher: Look at the position after 28 moves. Hard to believe Black could lose. Feels like it belongs in a book, either for how White should play or Black shouldn't...a stronger player than me could say which.
Feb-05-14  SirRuthless: Black had no business losing this game; That's right.
Mar-02-14  DiscoJew: Make no mistake about it, this was a huge game and a fine display of transferring advantages in the endgame. When is the last time you see a symmetrical endgame like this that features an endgame long term pawn sacrifice from the stronger side, for activity and a bind? The final position with the two passed pawns on the seventh is lovely.
Apr-13-16  SueursFroides: Interesting game between the two best juniors. The endgame of Rapport is brilliant here.
