Aug-06-17  Marmot PFL: Rook and pawn vs 2 minor piece endings can be interesting. two bishops would be an advantage but with bishop and knight not so much.

  jffun1958: Anand is winning a beautiful gane against Caruana.
Aug-06-17  Pedro Fernandez: In So-Carlsen 24.Qg3 Nf8! (super-horse!) for sure Carlsen saw the whole variation. Nice game!
Aug-06-17  Marmot PFL: Looks like a blunderful day for US players with .5 out of 3 the likely score.
Aug-06-17  BOSTER: My guess this is draw.
Aug-06-17  Big Pawn: I wonder why black is giving all his time away on this move. I wonder what is wrong with just playing ...g5 and hitting the clock?
Aug-06-17  Pedro Fernandez: Reviewing this game (briefly), I realizes Aronian has defended its position very well. This ending is quite complex, not easy to handle for both sides. Black cannot move to queenside as its f4-pawn is weak. Will see.
Aug-06-17  Ulhumbrus: It doesn't matter if Black can do nothing as long as White can do nothing either
Aug-06-17  Pedro Fernandez: Well, with the pawn exchange now black king has a better mobility.
Aug-06-17  JPi: In term of mobility Bh7 comes in mind.
Aug-06-17  JPi: I mean 43.Bh7. But overall the edge doesn't look enough.
Aug-06-17  Pedro Fernandez: The problem <JPi> resides in that the knight needs to take care Pb2, so it cannot attack the pawns on the kingside.
Aug-06-17  Pedro Fernandez: The best. As <Ulhumbrus> said, there is not for any side.
