Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-01-10  MKalafatas: I imagine that after the move 23.Qb3, White was feeling pretty good about all that space. But Black holds all the trumps and after 23...h6!, White's spacious castle folds like a house of cards. Kogan played the most innocuous openings, but in middlegames with fixed or semi-fixed pawn structures he was one of the best.
Nov-07-12  shakman: Another game on the same opening lines...V Gashimov vs E Karadeniz, 2002
Mar-08-18  Howard: Kogan jumped into clear first by winning his first three games straight!

Unfortunately, he pretty much bombed out the remainder of the tournament.
