Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-15-15  refutor: nice win by Ivanchuk. he got a slightly better position and simply turned the screws. after 21.Nf4 I think anyone would be happy to play White

  Pulo y Gata: Wonderful win and with King's Gambit!
Mar-15-15  iking: chaotic position .. viva Ivanchuk!
Oct-22-16  Christoforus Polacco: Another possibilities : 6.Qe2 c6 7.Nf3 Qe7 (7....Qh5 8.Nd5!) 8.d4 g5 (8...B:c4 9.Q:c4 g5 10.h4! g4 11.Ne1 Bh6 12.Nd3) 9.d5 Bg4 10.h4 f6 11.hg fg 12.dc bc 13.Nd5!
Oct-23-16  Open Defence: A modern day Bronstein / Spassky

I dont know if anyone else sees elements of Spassky in Ivanchuk's play

Nov-12-16  znsprdx: WOW So the KG is alive and well. Maybe Karjakin will try it against Carlsen
Nov-16-16  Christoforus Polacco: <znsprdx> Rather Carlsen try KG against Karjakin :) Maybe if it will be draw in the match - at blitz, for example ;) Magnus has 4 games played white figures in KG (+2, =2). Carlsen vs Wang Yue, 2010 And he won playing black. Karjakin one time and black only - he lost ...That game. Sorry ;)
