Thank you for your Carlsen game video, but this was kind of straight forward for majority of us, average players. A more interesting game was between Ganguly and Giri, which turned out into a very difficult endgame with queens on the table. Would have been very interesting your opinion on how to win that endgame. Did not see the after game interview with Giri, but next day after the draw with Carlsen, Giri mentioned about his mistake with Ke6 on the Ganguly game. I am curious what is your opinion on this game.
