Gazman5: Was going through this game from David Bronstein's tournament book, and was puzzled why White opted for 28.Nd3 when 28.Bxe6+ Kxe6 29.Rxc8 would've regained the pawn, activated the Rook and still retained ideas of Nd3. I can only assume perhaps he was concerned about Black shifting ...

Gazman5: Really enjoying his playing style at Tashkent and how he's playing against MVL at the moment. He's created an interesting unbalanced position having given up his bishop for 3 pawns and weakened his opponent's king. White may still have an edge but it feels like he has really good ...

Gazman5: He's a shoe-in to qulaify for the next Candidates tournament on rating and still has a lot of good years ahead of him. What is slightly more in question is whether he will ever again be such a huge pre-tournament favourite to become the eventual challenger as he was this time ...

Gazman5: Levon just got drawn into playing 22...g5 and 23...b5 in quick succession. When he did that against Peter Svidler in the last candidates it didn't turn out so well. A possible repeat on the cards?

Gazman5: <waustad> Thanks, that makes sense.
   Oct-15-13 V Malaniuk vs Oll, 1987
Gazman5: Clearly white was dissatisfied with 12.Rb3, winning Black's queen and the game in light of 12...Qa4 13.Bb5+ or 12...Qa2 13.Qc1 with the unstoppable 14.Ra3 to follow.

Gazman5: <nescio> Thanks, much appreciated!

Gazman5: Nice to see a 1.d4 player break out the Kings Gambit against Gata Kamsky when he needs a win. From the looks of it Gata was completely taken by surprise and he's gained a clear opening advantage, it's a question of whether he has the technique to make anything of it against black's ...

Gazman5: Ivanchuk has tried to be creative in his 2 losses which I have a lot of respect for. In the press conference he gave the appearance of a wounded lion, a creature that can be very dangerous. He has Black against Gelfand after the rest day and I think Boris should be quite nervous ...
   Mar-16-13 Radjabov vs Ivanchuk, 2013 (replies)
Gazman5: From what I could see just off to the side of the board it seemed like Vassily didn't realise how short of time he was. When Radjabov played a move (I think it was 32.Qa5)and hit the clock with him still needing to make 9 moves in 20s to reach the control, he started writing the ...
