    It seems that 23.Nc4 was OK.
    I suppose this anti-Sicilian line worked for Spassky in the late 1960s but it seems to be considered a bit old hat at GM level these days, something else may have been more promising. However White did more or less equalise.

    Anyway, Shaun needs a win tonight so we may see a Grunfeld.

    I think it is Ding who is going to play for win, irrespective of the fact that draw is enough for him.

    Just to cheer up. A game played earlier in the year and Ding Liren was on the receiving end...

    Wow, so is that Anton's highest rated scalp?

    Pity that Anton is not the world cup. Anton vs Ding would certainly be more interesting to watch rather than Ding - Press

    Maybe so. But as no Aussie has progressed further than Shaun since Gary Lane back in 2005 (when his opponent forfeited), I'm not sure why you keep putting him down.

    The players are seeded in rating order so Anton wouldn't have played Ding. At his current rating of 2573 (though he could have gained or lost points playing the Zonal and other warm-up events) he would have been seeded 106 and played David Navara, who incidentally was eliminated in the first round.

    After reforming the Women's World Championship cycle and making it a much better system, whose decision was it to run one of the Grand Prix events on the same week as this event?

    Surely either of these events could have been held a couple of weeks apart so both could get maximum exposure.
