  Penguincw: Pogonina is clutch! She is now a stunning 5/5 (+5,-0,=0) in Game 2s of the classical match, not to mention a perfect 3 for 3 in must-win games.

  paavoh: Equally dominant by White as in their first game. This match promises to be an exciting one.

  HeMateMe: Why doesn't black just play 9...Bxc3? Free pawn?
Mar-30-15  SimonWebbsTiger: 10. Ba3! is very dangerous. Giri has played this.

  AylerKupp: 23...Na5 moving the knight away from the soon to be critical k-side did not seem to be a good idea. And it's interesting how Black's seemingly well-placed knight after 24...Nc4 accomplishes nothing.

The ending is pretty too, all pretty much forced: 38...Rxd7 39.Ra8+ Rd8 40.Rxd8+ Qxd8 41.Qg7+ Ke8 42.Qxh8+ Kd7 43.Rg7+ Kc8 44.Rg8. And the knight is still sitting pretty on c4, accomplishing nothing.
