Kibitzer's Corner
May-10-19  mike1: Interesting how they are all avoiding the Sveschnikov against Carlsen now... But the WC still gets to play ...e4
Maybe the guys should play C4 or d4.
May-10-19  Ulhumbrus: If 21 Qa4 exposes White to a king side attack one alternative is 21 Qe2.
May-10-19  ajile: Another great "Stonewall" setup by Carlsen in the Sicilian. Easy peezy opening by Black turns into a relatively short win.
May-10-19  MarkBuckley: Carlsen cleverly neutralized the attack signalled by 20. Bc6; after sacrificing his f5 pawn Black broke the coordination of White's pieces.
