Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-16-04  Dick Brain: The usual plan would be to play 13...b5 so that if 14. e5?! dxe5 15. Rh4 Rd8 16. Qh5 nf8 holds. White could be a little sharper here with 16. Nd5 exd5 and if the rook on a8 moves such as Rb8? 17. Qh5 has extra strength.

But here Lein's 13...Nc5 moves the knight away from the kingside defense.

Nov-12-06  soughzin: I'm (as usual!) looking for something to beat the sicilian with. It appears you can use this system(the velomirovic not the regular sozin) against the najdorf,classical,schev and a modified version against the dragon. My question here is why is Qe2 always played instead of Qd2 that resembles the english attack? On d2 it forms a battery with the bishop that works well against the dragon, but in the najdorf-english attack the queen comes to d2 also.

Is it to support a quick g4? Perhaps it's just as good of spot for the queen but in the pure english attack it can't block the bishop that sits on f1 still?

Feb-08-09  Silverstrike: <soughzin> I'm no expert, but I think the queen belongs on e2 for several reasons; it supports the g4 break, covers the c4 square (black can't post a knight there), the queen can come out to h5 and then h6 even, and allows the rook to recapture on d4 if a knight trade should occur.
Jul-13-14  Everett: Another sleeping q-side for Black. He should prefer delaying castling and get some development on...
