capafan: <54.g5 b4 55.Re8 Rxc3+ 56.Kd2 fxg5 57.hxg5 ...> Exactly, but this type of break is easier to see, even for GMs under time pressure.. pxp or not results in protected passed pawns. It is more the Magnus effect. Aronian had an advantage a long time before he got into time ...

capafan: How much time between games?
   Aug-23-16 capafan chessforum (replies)
capafan: <cro777>Your assessment as usual, even with a cursory view, is accurate. White methodically creates both space and time in this game until Black's options are close to nil, (despite the number of pieces on the board). By strategically pushing pawns but quite never creating any
   Aug-22-16 Nakamura vs Giri, 2016
capafan: <cro777>I was wondering if you had followed the ICCF game that was recently completed between Dr. Matthias and Langeveld with the King's Indian Makagonov. Since our last Team game I had followed the game with much interest and would be interested in you analysis. You can reach

capafan: Good to see you back....
   Jun-10-16 Grand Chess Tour Paris Rapid (2016) (replies)
capafan: Interesting results for the Ruy Lopez, Berlin Defense. 1(win)-2(draw)-4(loss) but it is rapids after all
   May-30-16 R Mamedov vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
capafan: <Ulhumbrus>I am often a fan of your analysis, but I have to disagree here. 12.dxe5?! fails to 12...d5 and not only is the a2...f7 diagonal closed but the resulting pawn storm starting with 13...h5 becomes a threat (13.Bb3 or 13. Ba2, then 14...h5. If 13.Bd3 then 13...Nf5 and ...

   May-07-16 Ding Liren vs So, 2016 (replies)
capafan: <<Whitehat1963> What's the finish?> On 32...Kxf7 33.Qc4+ and the trade of Q's (Qxc4 bxc4) is forced, and there is nothing to stop the black b-pawn from queening. Other non-capture moves by Black are insufficient was White can force the trade of Q's easily by moving the ...
   Mar-06-16 Team White vs Team Black, 2015 (replies)
capafan: Congratulations to all on both sides of the board. A hard fought game at a high level with more than a few unexpected twists and turns. I am looking forward to the postgame assessments. As is the case in many of these games, understanding the opposing analysis is a interesting as ...
