  An Englishman: Good Evening: And the funny thing is, the YouTube commentators spent most of the game sharply criticizing Black's play, for example stating she had a hopelessly lost position after move 6 (!). Oh, well--it's not enough to have a hopelessly lost game; you still have to lose it.

  suenteus po 147: <An Englishman: Oh, well--it's not enough to have a hopelessly lost game; you still have to lose it.> That's great! It was a bad case of computer-itis during the commentary. The machines rated 6...Qa5 very poorly after 7.Be2, which Sharevich found on the board, but the continuation, as with most variations devised by programs, was not so clear cut. In the Lasker/Fischer/Carlsen battle of wills mindset, you will always have a contest when two people play one another because of nerves, limits of human capacity to calculate the position, ingenuity and inspiration, etc. I'm enjoying playing through Yip's games past and present at the moment because she clearly plays with an aggressive mindset to put her opponent to task in sharp, complicated positions to test whether they can calculate the positions as well and as quickly as she does.
Oct-14-21  SChesshevsky: Think the missing ingredient might be Sharevich appears a mainly d4 player. Somehow tricked into Modern/Pirc or even some sort of Accelerated Dragon where her feel for the position might not be that confident.

She probably gets she's better in the opening but given Yip likely prepared this and her relative lack of experience in the position, wonder how seriously Sharevuch considered exchanging with 11. Nxf6 vs. 11.0-0?
