Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-25-08  BarcelonaFirenze: I think this was the last time there was a possibility of watching a sicilian with Karpov playing white against Kasparov. Instead, it turned to be a king's indian. If instead of 4...,d6 Kasparov had played 4...,c5 after 5.d4 we had seen a sicilian dragon with Maroczy formation.

Jun-30-09  Knight13: <32. Be4> Nice try. But I don't see how Black could play a logical move and mess up after White plays Be4 ?
Feb-18-10  nelech: In his book Kasparov gives the line 19 Nb3 Nexd5?! (" a pretty joke of Tal") 20 Nxd5 Bxh2+ 21 Kxh2 Ng4+ parried by 22 Kg3 but why not 20 Nxa1 ?
Feb-18-10  A Karpov Fan: < Knight13: <32. Be4> Nice try. But I don't see how Black could play a logical move and mess up after White plays Be4 ?>

What is wrong with Be4?
