Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-19-15  fisayo123: Pretty impressive display from Dima Andreikin.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Pulo y Gata: And pretty dismal stuff from Vlad.
Sep-26-15  Ulhumbrus: 6...Qe7 obstructs Black's king bishop. Instead of this 6...Bc5 gets the king's bishop out as in the game Tartakower vs Ed. Lasker, 1924

7 Nc3 omits to play e5. This suggests 7...d5

Oct-01-15  Mating Net: I was mildly surprised that White went for the pure ocb ending. However, the 2 pawn advantage and lack of a dangerous Black pawn made the decision crystal clear in retrospect.
Oct-07-15  Ayaend: Nice ending view by white! Vs Kramnik.
