Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-08-14  Shams: This game is bananas. The young Polish GM hands Liren his only loss of the tournament.

  Gilmoy: <13.h4 14.h5 16.h6> feels swashbuckling, like Ding thinks he's still the wunderkind, whom the gods have fated to carry any attack successfully.

<18.Nf4 19.Nxe6> more of the same -- or maybe White is already losing, and it's a desperado? Black "sacs" first with <19..e4>, and suddenly his coffeehouse pressure is all very serious. <20.Ng5> (unshields f) <20..Bxd4>:

and Black's reversed-Danish skeet shoot seems a more efficacious use of the tempi than Ne6-Ng5-h6. <Rusty nail, break on scale> -- be careful what you play for, sometimes you get it and he let you.

Jun-14-14  parisattack: Ding has played many games successfully attacking the fianchetto position. But the effort fails here. Seems perhaps one piece short on the king-side to get enough traction.
