  Domdaniel: Wow. This game has convinced me that So is now world class. The way he negotiated the pitfalls of a very tricky opening line was deeply impressive.

Black's 14...g5 is seriously sharp. I have played this move myself in similar English/Reti positions, and also had it played against me. But I don't recall seeing it before in this precise kind of Four Knights English/ Reversed Sicilian.

Yes, So has become one of my fav players to watch.

So and Caru are both higher-rated than Naka now.
