Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-14-19  sonia91: Top 5 will qualify for the next World Cup, excluding those who already qualified from the 2018 edition and zonal tournaments.

Curiously, the championship is being held in China but the strongest Chinese aren't participating.

Jun-19-19  Imran Iskandar: Amazing game alert (for those who haven't seen it yet):

A Firouzja vs M Karthikeyan, 2019

Jun-20-19  Troller: <Imran Iskandar> Thank you! That is really an amazing game. Checking the clocks on chessbomb it even seems it was OTB inspiration by Black.
