   Oct-05-15 D Andreikin vs Kramnik, 2015
TonyRo: A rare variation of the QGD - curious what Kramnik had in mind after the more critical 10.dxc5.
   Sep-16-15 E Najer vs Vasiukov, 2006
TonyRo: How is there no kibitzing on such a wonderful game?!

TonyRo: Hey <parisattack>, Thank you SO MUCH for your support and compliments. I'm glad you like the book so far - after working on it for so long, literally nothing can make me happier at this point! I hope that as you delve further into it and spend more time with it you feel the ...
   Jul-01-14 Negi vs D Justo, 2014 (replies)
TonyRo: There is - 9.Qh5 is obviously the move, played in tons of games. It self-corrects after 13.Qg4 though. ;)

TonyRo: Ulhumbrus, I think his point was that now Black doesn't have Bd4.
   Feb-16-10 Gelfand vs Topalov, 2010 (replies)
TonyRo: Let's hope it's a fighting KID, although Gelfand is an expert, so maybe Topalov will try something else, or maybe Gelfand will play 1. e4.
   Jan-22-10 Shirov vs Short, 2010 (replies)
TonyRo: It's not clear that White needs to preserve the bishop. One idea is to just play 18. Nf3, intending to meet 18...Bf6 19. Rc1 or even 19. Qd3!? when Black taking on d4 leaves his d-pawn chronically weak. Only White can ever win.
   Jan-21-10 Van Wely vs Shirov, 2010 (replies)
TonyRo: ...Qxa3-f8 or Qb8-f8 are possible defensive options.
   Dec-14-09 Carlsen vs Adams, 2009 (replies)
TonyRo: Leko?
   Dec-10-09 D Howell vs Carlsen, 2009 (replies)
TonyRo: Howell do you know the player of the White pieces?
