Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-26-06  sandrea: black has kept white pieces bottled up at the edge of the board the whole game, incredible
Apr-26-06  mang00neg: This game is a perfect example of why I play anti-marshall lopez's.
Oct-19-06  suenteus po 147: Great prophylactic moves in this game by Ivanchuk. Kamsky essentially has to play a knight down the whole game.

Note the pawn structure pattern: ♙a3-b3 vs ♙a4-b5. It is similar to Averbakh vs Korchnoi, 1965 ♙g3-h3 vs ♙g5-h4 with good explanations and some more fine examples linked.

Jun-03-18  Saniyat24: Gotta go, but where?
Jan-04-19  Dave12: So that how a well played Marshall looks like.
