Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-23-14  sakredkow: That could not have been pleasant for white.
Jun-23-14  Edmontonchessclub: I think 8.Rd1 was one extra move that White couldn't afford. After that, his king got stuck in the centre. 8.e4 would be better, getting ready to castle.
Jun-23-14  DiscoJew: What a pounding black grunfeld...And Anton is a strong grandmaster! Ivanchuk, you're a beast, mate!
Jun-24-14  Strelets: <Edmontonchessclub> Greetings from an American neighbor! You're spot-on about the game: leaving the king uncastled is dangerous for either side in the Russian System. Like in the 4.Bf4 lines, the pin on White's knight on c3 can be a huge tactical point for Black.
Jun-24-14  Edmontonchessclub: And 13...c5! was a well timed double pawn sac to keep white under pressure.
