Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-26-18  Marmot PFL: This will be a draw. US looking for So and maybe Shankland to win with white.
Premium Chessgames Member Isn't White better here, by virtue of the fact that his King is more mobile?
Premium Chessgames Member On second thought, this looks like a draw.
Sep-26-18  JimNorCal: As a general rule, to preserve the draw, will Naka want to exchange a pair of bishops or keep both pairs on?
Premium Chessgames Member
  AylerKupp: <JimNorCal> At this level of play, given the equality of material and balanced pawn formation, I don't think that it makes any difference.

If he can, he'd probably want to trade
DSB since it's his bad bishop and black's good bishop.

Sep-28-18  PJs Studio: A top GM playing strong drawing chess to secure a black half point for his team. Hats off to the unselfish play by GM Nakamura.
