May-20-15  paavoh: This was close to perfection by Svidler.
I will often come back to this game to learn more.

  Check It Out: Svidler utilized a standard minority queen side attack, which eventually culminated in winning Giri's important d-pawn. The rest was technique, which Svidler has in spades.

May-20-15  paavoh: Isn't that statement by Giri "... little weird if I drew it..." a bit arrogant? As if he had much of a chance to actually draw it. IMO, he got dominated square and fair.
May-21-15  Ang Dalubhasa: Oh, well... Svidler won fair and square. I wonder in which part of the game Giri thought he had a draw? Move 5? Lol!

  Check It Out: I'm glad Svidler declined the draw repetition with 33. Qb2. I think he smelled blood
