Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-31-05  JamesBath: Certainly a fascinating game,
needlessly dragged out by Georgiev,
who needed to resign after Blacks'
Nov-01-05  CowardlyKnight: Amazingly insightful and creative play! This game has everything. Ivan detonates his opponent with incredible dynamic and positional manuevering. One of the most instructive games I've ever seen.
Mar-18-07  craigdc: What's wrong with 48. d7 ? I played against Jester (it's not the most powerful program, granted) and won with white.
Aug-06-09  ColonelFearguson: Really a great game by Ivanchuk! It shows that Black's chances for a win in the Seville Variation aren't small if he plays well. <craigdc> Position after 48.d7 Ke7 49.Rxb7 b3 50.d8=Q+! Kxd8 51.Rf7 b2 52.Rf1 is the same as after 53rd move of the game, but White has a single tempo less. Black wins by bringing his King closer to the b-pawn, just like he did in the game.
May-07-10  WhiteRook48: the pawn majority...
Jun-08-13  csmath: This is indeed surprisingly good game including Georgiev. Where did he go wrong? 22. Qe2 surely look natural and so does 24. Nf1. Perhaps 26. g3?

Ivanchuk plays truly a masterpiece Grunfeld.
