|Mar-19-08|| ||Knight13: What's wrong with 15...f5?|
|Mar-19-08|| ||ounos: It allows the awkward Ng5-e6. Even with a pawn sacrifice, it probably worths it to open the long diagonal.|
|Mar-19-08|| ||Shams: <Knight13> it allows 16.Ng5 and 17.Ne6, where exchanging on e6 frees white's LSB. Still, black does play this way in many KID lines.|
|Mar-19-08|| ||Knight13: Hmmm... I'd rather let White do that and black taking on e6 winning a pawn. I don't think the pawn sacrifice is work it, though, as that bishop isn't gonna assassinate black or anything and Black has good control of center plus if he wants he could play e4 and free his g7 bishop.|
|Apr-24-11|| ||bronkenstein: I believe that Botvinnik (letting it happen ) and Smyslov (not doing it ) had better judgement of that move :)|
|Apr-24-11|| ||haydn20: After 16. Ng5 Qe7; 17. Ne6 Bxe6; 18. dxc6 Ra7; 19. Bd5, Black's pieces are a bit tangled up and the e6 P could be a real nuisance. Not necessarily fatal, but I have to agree with <bronkenstien>. If Black plays e4, White has Bf4 attacking the backward Pd6.|
|Apr-26-11|| ||bronkenstein: White can even try to steal another tempo from black in that variation , by not playing Ne6 immediatelly , but waiting on ...h6 to be played first , BTW softening white squares around black king .|
|Apr-27-11|| ||bronkenstein: BTW , if 15 ... f5 ? 16. Ng5 Qe7?? , not 17 .Ne6 ? , but rather simple b:c ends the fight it seems .|
If black prepares f5 with 15 . ... h6 instead , 16. bxc !? <Nc5!?> 17. N:c5 ( not 17. Nd6 ?? < Ba4> ) looks good for white .
|Sep-05-13|| ||offramp: Played 9th March. Tolush annotated this game. That giant of attacking play may have been slightly peeved. It is not a great game.|
In any case, he says 30.a4 was substandard. He thinks the pawn should've stayed on a3, then the white King should go to a2. Then white should start a pawn-storm on the kingside. He may have said that tongue-in-cheek.
|May-05-16|| ||zydeco: <offramp> Lol. Tolush could really whip up an attack out of thin air. |
I think the players had pretty much given on the game by about move 18. They were just moving around until move 40 on the off-chance that they could come up with some genius plan during the adjournment.
