Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-24-05  supertimchan: Is 19.Bxg6 a horrible blunder?
Jul-25-05  ConspTheory06: I'd say so but i think Rxb7 is an even bigger one... yeah his plan to play c3 and pin the bishop doesnt work so i would give it at least a question mark.
Aug-17-05  notyetagm: This game has got to be the worst I have ever seen Karjakin play.
Aug-18-05  ahmadov: It is very unusual to see a player like Karjakin not forseeing a move like 20....Qa5
Sep-25-08  Poisonpawns: Karjakin lost two games really badly to this guy
Feb-11-09  freeman8201: This guy has to be lacking on how to play tactically. I can't see how he missed 20...Qa5! It reminds me of <Hikaru Nakamura> stating he was proud to have a plus recorded against Sergey Karjakin <5 wins 1 loss 3 draws> and being able to "out play him in the middle game" using middle game strategies. I believe he also stated Sergey having superior opening knowledge. This information came from Chesslife (USA)
Feb-11-09  freeman8201: I play the Pirc and I dislike Nc6, but White can't punish Black for playing it. When I face the Austrian attack I play Na6.

  sea7kenp: 21 ... Bb6 seems a lot like a Spider closing his/her Web around a Fly. That Rook's not going anywhere!

  Clement Fraud: I learn such a lot from Kibitzer's Corner - and today I discover that Hikaru Nakamura has a plus score against Karjakin! In this game, however, I can't help but think there is something at work which we don't know about: Karjakin's final three moves were ones that even a moderate club player - like myself - would have avoided. Is Mr Karjakin a drinker?
Jan-03-20  jith1207: <Clement Fraud>: He was 15 years old, probably had one of those days of bad concentration.

I didn't realize Tigran is older than him.
