  notyetagm: A great Black Queen's Indian win.
Jul-17-08  Hugin: I like to call this game the Trojan Horse

18..Ne4 20..Nc5 and 22..Nb3 tied up ouer opponent so much, he could hardly move

Other important moves was the idea with 17..f4 24..Bc4 and 25...Qf7 27..Qf7 keeping f-line and G8 -A2 diagonal covered. But the Knight standing on b3 really got him..

Aug-11-08  classF: J Dufek vs A Nickel, 2007

GM Nickel played 13...Ba3, the move I wanted to play.

Jan-15-09  WhiteRook48: hmm. Great game by the world.
Jan-25-09  WhiteRook48: can't they get more technology than that dancing Rook?
Jan-30-09  LIFE Master AJ: Only 837 pages of kibitzing? I wonder how long it will take me to read all that?
Jan-30-09  Whack8888: A quick Question: The 12...f5 was orgainlly an ideas by Karpov, right? If I remember correctly, it was somewhat rare when we played it but either Karpov had some analysis or maybe even a game or something with it.

Werle - Hou Yifan Corus 2009 is following the opening but Hou Yifan changed with 13...Bd6 instead of the World's 13...Rc8.

The game is going on as I post this, so we will just have to wait and see how it all turns out!

  whiteshark: <Whack8888: A quick Question: The 12...f5 was originally an ideas by Karpov, right?>

I'm not that sure about it... Games Like Y Shulman vs The World, 2007 but at least we left the well trodden, drawish path of 12...c5.

Jan-30-09  Whack8888: <Whiteshark> Thanks for the clarification, I had only vague recollections so it is entirely possible they are completely wrong.
Jan-30-09  classF: <Whack8888>

This might be the first game with 12...f5:

Hey, I like that dancing rook!

Feb-25-09  WhiteRook48: Oh, is that because the dancing rook is your avatar?

Aug-13-11  Nullifidian: I'm surprised nobody has yet mentioned that this game is featured in the current (August 2011) issue of Chess Life.

  hms123: <Nullifidian> Here's the link to the Chess Life article (see pages 32-35):

  Shams: <OCF> has some clever verse published in that article. Glad I clicked through, I somehow missed that piece... inexplicable as usually I devour Chess Life cover-to-cover...
