Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-24-10  Everett: Both 16.c5 and 38.Nxc4 deserve attention, yet Andersson remains the only player who seems to create fortresses out of any kind of material. I don't know if black makes any mistakes, but white certainly had to work for it.

Aug-25-10  Everett: <Eric Schiller> If you have a photo that's accessible it would be much more helpful. Not everyone wants to be friends through facebook.
Aug-25-10  DoubtingThomas: Did Karpov play this line a lot? I can't immediately recall any other example. Funny, you'd have thought it suited Ulf more than it suited him.

  Sastre: He only played it three times according to the database
Aug-26-10  DoubtingThomas: Thanks, that's interesting.
Dec-27-13  bkpov: why not 68.Rb7..?
am i smart or just a dumbo?
Dec-28-13  micartouse: <bkpov> I bet he overlooked it. Maybe he saw 68 ... Rxa6 as a response and ruled it out as needlessly complicated, but that also seems good for white.
Dec-28-13  micartouse: On second thought, I don't think white overlooked it. It's too much of a candidate move for that. I think he just felt it wasn't necessary.
Jan-02-14  bkpov: i think 68.Rb7! is a killer move, paves the way for the central pawn to progress unchallenged.
May-24-18  siggemannen: Took me a while to figure out that 38...Nxc4 doesn't win the piece due to 39.Rb8 and Qb8 at some point forces win of the a8-bishop
May-24-18  Toribio3: Andersson is an end game expert. He stubbornly resigned only on move number 82 when his position was really hopeless!
