Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-17-10  Shams: Great game to clinch the tournament. White comes out of the opening with a pawn deficit but better developed and with good play on the dark squares.

Obviously not 22...Nxg3?? 23.Ra8+

Feb-17-10  Billy Vaughan: A win that's symmetric to Nepo's late-round victory against Le in Aeroflot 2008, clinching the event in his favor.

That's a cute tactic on the 22nd move and a fun endgame overall. Good win by the Aeroflot champion!

Feb-21-10  DiscoJew: What a huge win. 1.Nf3 is still a powerful way to play for a win with white.

Feb-27-10  Atking: A great game of Le Quang Liem which opens great futur. The confidence he played a gambit - Pieces development lead and strong weakness on his bishop color - is very impressive.

  Penguincw: It looks like Le Quang Liem indirectly beat Magnus Carlsen as Ian Nepomniachtchi beat Magnus Carlsen in Carlsen vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2011.
