  0ZeR0: Very impressive. Grandelius has been playing excellently in this event. At this point it wouldn't even surprise me if he wins the whole thing.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: 11...Be6 with the idea of returning the extra pawn represents a known idea in the Sicilian; the first new move compared with the database consists of 15.Bb3. Vachier-Legrave has lost with 11...Be6 before (Caruana vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2019). Wondering why he still plays it.

  HeMateMe: great tactics here, the pins and forks. Hard to digest it all! Black will lose two more pawns here, if not more.
