Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-21-15  Illogic: Knight on a5 dominated by the bishop. Had to pitch a pawn to free it
Oct-22-15  Atking: An high class win. Deep and logical.

  HeMateMe: someone had a Knight that couldn't move, and a Bishop that was not allowed to be a Bishop.
Oct-22-15  Pulo y Gata: This is the first time I see that Qd8-Qd6-Qa6 trip in this familiar position. Quite a concept.
Oct-26-15  MarkBuckley: Qd6-a6 recalls the Scandinavian Q maneuver Qd5-a5-a6 in reply to the Nc4 line.
Nov-01-15  Ulhumbrus: The move 9 Qb3 leaves the d4 pawn unguarded and Kramnik takes advantage of this by 9...Nc6 inducing the move 10 e3. One alternative to 9 Qb3 is 9 b3.

Your powers of observation do you credit.

<....Kramnik takes advantage of this by 9...Nc6 inducing the move 10 e3....>

Given this setup, that is a move which could not have been avoided for long.

Nov-05-15  The Rocket: <An high class win. Deep and logical.>

Not really. g4 is a terrible move from Svidler. Very weak endgame play.
