Let's hope there will be a new shredder version after the championship. My last one is shredder 12 and that was a few years ago.

The same counts for hiarcs,
Let's keep the fingers crossed for the last round and the game hiarcs - Jonny.
Maybe Jonny goes for a draw and plays Petroff's defense.

2 .. Nc6 ?! that's not the way to draw. Perhaps they don't want to become world champion. But 4. c3 it not quite aggressive either.

Why would Jonny want to draw? It won't secure the title.

Shredder attacking Kmodo right now? (round 9, from move 10, 11).
High hopes for Shredder!

(indeed, all shredders piece are poised for attack to Komodos kingside. But it's komodo we're talking about here.)

I am not as optimistic as you, however I do agree that both the Shredder and Jonny games look interesting so far.

That Bishop on c2 is passive, I wonder how Hiarcs will solve that problem.

Move 15, 16 and 17 and the attack went down the drain. Still a good chance to draw tough.

Because Jonny won from Komodo it has a better SBgr score ?
