Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-17-09  aragorn69: In this tournament (and generally it has to be said), Magnus plays endgames with flair and relentless precision.
Nov-17-09  scrambler: This beautiful game has been posted on YouTube.

Nov-18-09  Shams: <scrambler> whoever filmed and uploaded that is awesome. An endgame crush of Svidler is a rare creature caught on tape.
Nov-18-09  returnoftheking: Poor Svid is clearly not happy with himself after throwing those pawns. After the handshake (!) he wants to analyze a bit but MC is already getting up.
Nov-20-09  laskersteinitz: What language are they speaking in at the end. I assume English...?
Nov-21-09  notyetagm: I really like 23 ♖c1-c5!, guarding the a5-square so that 24 ♗f3-b7 rounds up the weak Black a6-pawn.

Apr-03-15  thejack: Sometimes i like to play over some blitz games (or watch them on YouTube, for that matter ;). It gives you a pretty good (and quick) impression of a players style, and i like that. Carlsen for example has a beautiful classical style, reminiscent of Capablanca, or Fischer (at his best).
