Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-19-16  ndg2: Grandelius' 29...Nxe4 was passive and a strategic mistake. He could have been more active instead and with 29...Ra2+ get sufficient counterplay.
Apr-19-16  Sokrates: It's one of those games where the winner seems to win by unremarkably simple, obvious moves. But the plan beginning with 22.Ra1 and the Zwischenzug 24.ab6 reveals the level og strength behind it.
Apr-19-16  ndg2: Krambik certainly played straight forward and powerful but at one point Grandelius could have equalzed.
Apr-19-16  Karposian: The London System has become increasingly popular over the last couple of years. Some years ago, Kamsky was the only super GM to employ it regularly. Now even big Vlad plays it.
Apr-20-16  paavoh: To most players, myself included, the miidle game appeared as an equal position. AFAIK, the time taken for the game was quite equal too. Apparently, the intrinsically better player won in the end. Better planning and problems solving skills prevail when the clock is ticking the last ten minutes?
Apr-20-16  Ulhumbrus: Instead of 10..Ne7, 10...Bd7 gets the bishop out

Instead of 15...Nc8, 15...Rac8 contests the c file

It seems that Black has neglected his development in this game and 21 Rc6 begins to make count White's lead in development.

  kingscrusher: I can't believe how top GMs are playing the London system now - perhaps a safe way to avoid too much opening theory.

  HeMateMe: while counting pawns, black let his King get trapped.
