  An Englishman: Good Afternoon: Congratulations to Goryachkina for a clutch comeback victory! Began to sense a slight White edge after 23.Qe1, when the Be8 and Qh5 seemed to get in each other's way. Black could have regained a pawn with 34...Bxc4; 35.bxc4,Qxc4, but allowing 36.Qf3 might have felt too risky.
Jan-23-20  SChesshevsky: Incredible preparation and guts. Seems the opening is a favorite of Jobava's, who looks to have caught a number of big fish with it.

  offramp: This is a great game of chess. It is full of drama.In this drama White's queen's knight, the ♘b1, goes on a long pilgrimage.

Huge tension throughout, but Aleksandra Goryachkina kept her nerve!

Mar-15-20  The17thPawn: Goryachkina may have borrowed from Jobava but to pull this in a WC match is gutsy. In the examples above all but one of them was in quick time controls.
Mar-15-20  Ironmanth: Fantastic game from a fantastic match. Bravo to both competitors! Thanks, chessgames. Everyone be safe and sane out there!
Mar-15-20  ajile: London System is a Colle hybrid and uses c3 not Nc3.
