Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-29-17  Mr. V: This is why I'm a fan of Dima despite his frequently boring draws
Jan-29-17  shintaro go: Just when you thought Aronian is back to form, he loses horribly against Andreikin. Makes you wonder if his window to become WC has truly passed.
Feb-04-17  pilobolus: Somewhere arround move 25
it appeared to me that Aronian is winning...
May-04-21  fisayo123: Nice game by Andreikin. One of the underrated players of his generation.
