May-20-20  MordimerChess: Seems like Magnus Carlsen experiments again with fancy openings as he's sure to advance to another stage of the tournament. Jan Krzysztof Duda had nothing against that and played very solid and risk free game, dominating positionally at the end.

Interesting how pawn on b4 was hanging most of the game and in critical moment JKD just pushed it to b5 and neutralized most of the potential counter play on the queen side. With the support of dark square bishop his advance on the king side was matter of time.

He could even go for 38. Be5! to finish much faster :D But he went for less risky way.

My video analysis about this game:
Enjoy and learn! ❤️❤️
