Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-01-05  fred lennox: 7...a6 is understandable. White can't move the c pawn and the bishop and knight are open to pawn attack. It ends up being of little merit since the Nc3 wants to go to h5. 11. Nd7? Ne8 looks preferable. It protects the g7 pawn and allows the QB to protect e6. 12...g6? The idea to move the N from f6 was so the f pawn could protect the powerful post e5. Chigorin goes to show how powerful e5 is. 15.Nf4 is a nice blockade. It restricts black's position.
