    Re: London Chess Classic FIDE Open

    I was enjoying the Aman game - what an incredible fight. Aman looked much better (probably winning somewhere) in a fascinating endgame against one of the top 100 in the world. So close! Keep up the fine fighting play Aman!

    Yuanling Yuan played the Dragon against Joe Gallagher and won a nice game with an alert loose piece combo at the end. A GM scalp to boot! (rd 4) I enjoyed that one.

    London Chess Classic FIDE Open 2017

    They are very slow in getting out the games of the lower boards in the Open.

    Two Hambleton games though. The Motylev game is given again for completeness:

    Round 6, Dec. 6
    Motylev, Alexander (2675) – Hambleton, Aman (2474)
    B48 Sicilian, Taimanov variation
