Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-01-12  Shams: A fine win from Svidler. If 24.Rd4 or 25.Rd4 then ...b4-b3 wins the rook. The same issue presents White if 23.Qxc4 Qc7, so the losing move is no later than 22.Nc4. If instead 22.Nd2 though then ...Qf6 wins the exchange I believe. The rook is a pain for White on d4, as is his Nb1.
Mar-11-17  BeechBishop: White's move 16 looks like an error to me. Instead of 16. ♗xc6, going a piece up, pinning the Knight against the King and attacking the Rook, White plays the purely defensive 16. ♕e2, merely defending the b5 Bishop. She waits for Svidler to defend the c6 Bishop and then takes it instead of taking it for free on the previous move.
Mar-11-17  johnnyb3: <BeechBishop> 16.Bxc6 Nc4 threatening Bxb2# looks pretty tough to deal with.
