Aug-30-04  wall: 23...Qe2, trading off queens looks bad. Perhaps best is 23..Nf3+. Instead of the game move 24.Qxe2, White could also play 24.Rfxf7+ Kh6 25.Qxe2 Rxe2 26.Rf6 with an easy win.
Aug-11-07  amntony: This game shows the king-side attack in the Reti system by Bobby :-)

  TheFocus: Opponent's name is Richard.
Jul-31-14  Ke2: Sometimes the KIA and KID don't match, but this is just a KID flipped.
Jan-01-17  Helios727: It is a KIA even though black played a KID because white did not play d4 and c4.
Jan-01-17  morfishine: <Helios727: It is a KIA even though black played a KID because white did not play d4 and c4> Who cares?

  perfidious: Believe Fischer later wrote that after 5....d6, he felt Black was better, the reason being that White would now have to commit himself in the centre with 6.c4 when the response would be ....e5, or that White could plump for the game continuation instead, when 6....c5 can give an innocuous line of the Closed Sicilian once Nc3 is played.

  maxi: Pertaining what defines a KIA and similar opening questions, I like the discussion in Reti vs Rubinstein, 1923
Apr-27-17  hudapri: <perfidious> Interesting, so he believed...

P-QB4 is refuted by ...P-K4

Btw what's the source of that comment? MSMG?

  perfidious: <hudapri>, that was not from MSMG--might have been in the American Chess Quarterly in the early sixties.
