Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-03-20  tigreton: Great game from Granda, who shows a deep understantding of the position. Every move is perfect. He mainly takes advantage of the light square bishop, which has no rival, and puts pressure along the diagonals a4-e8 and b1-h7, and also along the g-file.
Apr-03-20  sudoplatov: Just skimming, I didn't "get" why 15...Bxf3. Quick check on Stockfish suggests 15...Nc5 may be better.
Apr-04-20  tigreton: Black played 15 ... Bxf3 against White's idea of moving the knight to h4 followed by f3, harrasing the bishop on e4, but maybe that was not so dangerous.
