Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-27-18  Robyn Hode: Amazing tactical battle by Naka. His opponent dilly dallyed too much and got burnt.
Jan-27-18  Steve.Patzer: Was 28. Bb4 a loss of tempo?
Jan-27-18  ChessHigherCat: I think the idea of 28. Bb4 must have been to play Bc3 hoping for Bxc3 Qxc3 with control of the long diagonal, but then white figured out that Bc3 could be met with c4 instead so he decided to trade LSBs first, which didn't work out so well.
Jan-28-18  talwnbe4: one move.. 29. Bxc5 instead of 29. Bxd5 ? -+
and Duda goes down.
Jan-28-18  belgradegambit: Same variation that gave Gwain Jones a winning position against Carlsen earlier in the Tata tournament. As a lifelong Dragon player I don't like 10. Qe1 as e5 gives Black dynamic equality with good winning chances. Its really great to see the Dragon reappear at the highest levels.

  thegoodanarchist: Wow, it ended with mate on the board! At this level that is a shock.

  WannaBe: Move 39, before time control. Could be time pressure and did not see it...
Apr-28-19  YesChess1010: Great game
Feb-21-20  1d410: The Yugoslav is a tough attack but the number of recent white victories with it is inexcusable and indicative of the aging chess elite. Changing the rules of chess is going too far however.
