  PhilFeeley: ...Qe6 is bad.

  Sally Simpson: after 26.Qc4 White is setting Black up for Rxb7. Looks good for White.
Oct-01-15  BOSTER: Diaqonal d5-g8 under big pressure.

  Calli: Get ready to dance. The Baku Bugaloo!
Oct-01-15  Bruce Graham: Svid draws first blood. Nice pinning and steady pressure brought it home.

  whiteshark: Job done in 3hr 10min. See you maņana for more!
Oct-01-15  FairyPromotion: Svid Dreams!
Oct-01-15  dunkenchess: Karjakin played badly, not in condition. Playing like a drunken master. Having a pary last night?
Oct-01-15  EhsanBalani: Not a play deserves Karjakin.
Oct-01-15  kamagong24: reverse bayonnet attack didnt seem to work here
Oct-01-15  Ulhumbrus: A brilliant win. Svidler found the move 22 Rec1!! which GM Miroshnichenko said was a computer move, and one which Svidler was unlikely to find.
Oct-01-15  Ulhumbrus: With 10...Bb7 Black's queen's bishop aims towards the king side. Black's play lies however on the queen side. This suggests 10...Bd7. After 10...Bb7 it is Svidler who becomes strong on the queenside instead of Karjakin and Karjakin's queen's bishop becomes a target instead of a weapon.

  FSR: Svidler on the Roof.
Oct-01-15  Fanques Fair: Extraordinary effort by Svidler. With the superb pawn sacrifice 16-d4 ! he manages to exploit Black´s classic weakeness on the a2-g8 light-square diagonal, imposing a very agressive play against Black´s badly coordinated pieces. The astounding thing is that Black has an-extra central passed pawn but is unable to defend the position.26-Qc4 and 27 Rxb7 are beautiful moves, the first one threatening motives over Black´s back rank and the second sacrificing the Queen.

  Mating Net: I find it quite remarkable that Black had his Queen and b8 Rook undefended after 22...Qe6. That's exactly the kind of piece uncoordination that I strive to avoid in pattzerville.
Oct-01-15  Petrosianic: <A brilliant win. Svidler found the move 22 Rec1!! which GM Miroshnichenko said was a computer move, and one which Svidler was unlikely to find.>

Why is it a computer move? The idea of supporting Nc5 is obvious enough.

Oct-01-15  CountryGirl: 9.exd5 was very interesting - it's certainly very rare. In the KIA white almost automatically plays e5 to establish a bridgehead for a king-side attack. Then both players have their usual well-trodden paths. A lesson to us all to query WHY we play various things in the opening, and to be more open minded. ACtually I think all Svidler's opening prep has been well considered in this World Cup.
Oct-01-15  Rama: I am always impressed by Svidler's Rook-play, no surprise to me he found Red1.
Oct-01-15  znsprdx: 15...a5 would have been a clear plus for Black
Oct-02-15  Ulhumbrus: <Mating Net: I find it quite remarkable that Black had his Queen and b8 Rook undefended after 22...Qe6. That's exactly the kind of piece uncoordination that I strive to avoid in pattzerville.> In the event that lines were opened by d4, Svidler's pieces were placed better to benefit from the lines opened than Karjakin's pieces were placed well to benefit from the lines opened. Moreover Karjakin's men were placed worse so as to provide targets on the lines opened than Svidler's men were placed badly so as to provide targets on the open lines opened. Thus the b file was opened but it was Svidler's rook that occupied it and Karjakin's queen's bishop that formed a target on it. The a2-g8 diagonal was opened but it was Svidler's queen that occupied it and Karjakin's knight on d5, rook on f7 and king on g8 which formed targets on it.
Oct-31-15  Joules: Chess24 has provided an excellent "revealingly" detailed and in depth transcription of an interview in Russian with the two players. Looks like a really good analysis of this most interesting and exciting match, blunders and all. Part 1 covers the four classical games. Part 2 will cover the tiebreakers.
