Sep-11-15  CountryGirl: Highly instructive game. The Q side break-out was well played by black. The computers shifted around during the game, with only small advantage discerned one way or the other for a long time, but Pentala played very insightfully. Commiserations to Max, who fought well. These games of strong GM versus strong IM are very educational. That's what I like about the early rounds the World Cup!
Sep-13-15  SimplicityRichard: <CountryGirl> Even before I re-play this game I have to commend you on your brilliant commentary that is really the reason I will study this game.#

Sep-13-15  SimplicityRichard: Harikrishna employs the simple and effective strategy of creating pawn weaknesses that he later picks off like ripe cherries from a bush, and thus culminating in a won endgame. Highly instructive indeed.#

  GrahamClayton: Always enjoy games where multiple passed pawns charge down the board, and the player with the extra piece opposing them is unable to stop their advance.
