Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-06-16  Ulhumbrus: Consider the following question: With a Benoni pawn formation, with White's central pawns on f4, e4 and d5 and with Black's pawns on c5 and d6 what does White gain from the thrust e5? This game suggests one answer: White gains a winning attack after the further thrust e6 followed by the capture exf7+.

(even though we can't really fit the around-the-border connotation into chess)

Sep-06-16  luzhin: 34...N7b6 appears to lose by force. Black has to play 34...Nf8 keeping some control over the critical e6 square, with chances to hold (though probably not against Carlsen!).

Winants vs Carlsen, 2003

Sep-07-16  HaydenB: To paraphrase Tal: Winants was already Winants but Carlsen was not yet Carlsen.

  JonathanJ: Carlsen looks like Fischer here
Sep-07-16  310metaltrader: Every winning position of carlsen is the same. The opponents king has more holes than hillary's exculpatory statements, while magnus's king is safer than trump's tax returns.
Sep-08-16  Mudphudder: 310's metaphor should be the Game of the Day title for this game.

  FSR: That didn't take long. I tried submitting <Down on His Luc> as a pun for this game, but someone had beaten me to it.
