Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-18-16  SirRuthless: A statement result. They could have shaken at move 100 but why? Caruana took the risk and Nakamura collected the result. Hopefully they can get along well during olympiad and <idol wesley> too. Abny disharmony could be a disaster.
Jun-19-16  SpringerFahrer: This was a great game; a real slugfest. Objectively though (discounting the clock situation, and the great practical difficulties of playing the white position correctly) I suspect that white was winning for most of the game. Certainly all of the seven-piece-and-less positions in this game are won for white; for example, at move 100, referred to in the previous posting, white has a forced mate in 26(!), starting with 100.Rf5, according to the Lomonosov 7-man tablebase.

Jun-19-16  bobthebob: Is there actually disharmony between the two, or is that manufactured by commentators for drama: "we have the top two US players here, let's see who comes out on top!"
