Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-16-21  fisayo123: 23. b4! 24. a4! 25. Qxc6!! is a stunning concept.

Firouzja has really been showing peak creativity over the last 2 games.

Nov-16-21  ndg2: I still think, both taking with the queen on d5 and the c3, Rc2/c1 battery are actually not that good. If white had taken with the pawn on d5, Alireza could have cemented a knight on c6 via a5.

But it's amazing how fast black's position breaks down after the blunder 24..axb4. 24..bxa4 24. b5 would have been correct.

"Alireza's tricks are devilish" -- Magnus Carlsen
