Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-16-13  PhilFeeley: Must be a time loss. I see no win.
Jun-16-13  niemzo: It was an Armageddon game, so white had to win. It's possible Navara thought it was impossible to win a pawn down with no compensation.
Jun-16-13  luzhin: After 22.Nf3 Nxd3 Hou is TWO pawns up - and they are passed and connected: it's absolutely resignable.
Jun-27-13  hudapri: Qa4 seems like a terrible blunder from a gm, it's just a free pawn, right? Was this like a 5-4 min armageddon game?
Jan-25-16  SimplicityRichard: <Luzhin> You are absolutely correct!#
Jan-25-16  SimplicityRichard: Hou Yifan v. David Navara (2016) Tata Steel, 1-0, settles the real theme of this discussion.

Yes; Yifan is pretty good, and she can indeed beat top GMs.#
