Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-09-04  euripides: An interesting demonstration of how White can handle the Chigorin. Whereas many players push the centre first, Kasparov relies on minor piece play (12 Qc1 prepares 13 Be1 by protecting e3 against Nd5). Once he wins a pawn K is clearly ahead. At the end 27...Bce5 looks like a blunder, but if 27...Nge White can win with 28 Ng6 Bxg6 29 fg followed by 30 Rh8+, 31 Qh3+ and mate to follow.
Jan-09-04  Catfriend: <euripides> I agree it's a nice lesson to learn.. but: a) 7..♕d6 is hardly the best move
b) 12..♘b6 is an awful mistake
c) Black didn't play a single good move!
Jan-09-04  euripides: 7...Qd6 is quite often played both here and in similar positions after Nf3 and ...Bg4xf3. I am not sure 12...Nb6 is a mistake,though something has certainly gone seriously wrong before that; Qxb7 is a real threat.
Aug-08-04  who: <euripides> I think <Catfriend> meant 12...Nd7 not 14...Nb6. Anyway, I am not sure why black played that then, in the Morozevich game that move is played after white plays e4 blocking the d3 bishop
Aug-08-04  who: 'that then' refers to Nd7
Sep-19-05  Poisonpawns: D Rogozenko vs Morozevich, 2000 White plays the inferior 7.Bxc3 instead of keeping the center strong and taking with the pawn.
Sep-27-05  Poisonpawns: A possible refutation!? of the Chigorin...
