  thegoodanarchist: Wow, nice win by Aronian. Masterly use of pawns and pawn wedges.
Apr-28-16  Ulhumbrus: 7 d3?! may let White's opening initiative slip.

If 8...b6 creates difficulties for Black's development an alternative is 8...0-0 before doing anything else.

31...f6 dusturbs the king side pawns. This suggests 31...Bf6

An alternative to 33...b4 is 33...Rd8 placing pressure on the d pawn

35...e5 places another pawn on a black square. Instead of this 35...Rd8 pins the d pawn

May-18-16  Boban: 33<hxg6> is wedge in the true sense of the word! thegoodanarchist
