Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-19-06  Brown: 41.h4 must have come as a cold shower for black.
Jun-11-10  black.pr0jekt: swagger
Sep-05-11  Everett: By move 39, Karpov has fully blunted Black's initiative and pressure on the Q-side while maintaining a much more flexible set of pieces. What follows is a complete massacre as Karpov is practically two rooks to the good.
Apr-05-12  Ulhumbrus: 13...h6 disturbs the king side pawns without necessity. An alternative is 13...Qc7 following the plan of ...Rfa8, ...Nd7-b6-a4 and ...Nf6-e8 as in the famous game Taimanov vs Bronstein, 1953
Apr-05-12  Shams: Quite a kabuki display from Black's heavies here between moves 22 and 35.
May-30-12  cunctatorg: One of the greater maneuvering games I have ever seen!! Wow!!!!!
