Dec-07-04  Nomen Nescio: Black's passed pawns cannot be stopped.
What is an alternative to 13.Nd5?
Jul-19-05  BlackHowling: Well, the point of 13.Nd5 goes to the heart of the Sicilian Defense. The move ...d5 is the prime objective for the defense. This move gives black a a freer game. Now, white could simply play such moves that defends the e-pawn, but that would allow black to play for ... d5. So, I believe the thought of 13.Nd5 was to prevent black from playing the ...d6-d5 move.

  pawn to QB4: Wow, stumbled on this blast from the past. First time many keen players heard of Garry Kasparov was when Leonard Barden stuck this game in his column ("The Guardian" in England, variously syndicated in India, possibly elsewhere?) and tipped young Weinstein as "the player to take the world championship for the Soviet Union into the next century". Half right: Gazza made it, the Soviet Union didn't. Rightly proud of this prediction, Barden mentioned it now and then for the next 20 years.
Feb-13-07  Tacticstudent: 16. g4!. White has more options in the knigside, and Black generally has a better endgame than white in the Sicilian. It's time to attack!

17. Bd2. White is just creating weak holes in black's side.

21. c4!. Black's center was not estabilized; So, White just go for crumbling it.

24. Nxa5. Keep the initiative, don't matter it's price!

25. ..., Be4 is a better alternative.

29. a6?. White has gave up of attacking to defend from Black's pawns.

34. Nb7? Ne7+!

Jan-05-08  DanLanglois: <Tacticstudent> I'm fine with '16. g4!'

I'm not sure what this means: '17. Bd2. White is just creating weak holes in black's side.' I take it that White's play is being praised, in which case it's not '17. Bd2' but 18 Bd2. And, I imagine that 18 Be3 is at least as good.

I don't agree with: '21. c4!' In fact, White wound up staring at two connected passed center pawns on the 7th rank, so I don't see how White could have failed more miserably at 'crumbling' Black's center.

I don't agree that White has or keeps the initiative with 24 Nxa5. Black has the initiative.

I can't parse what '25. ..., Be4 is a better alternative' might mean. Are we talking about some suggestion for White on the 25th move? Indeed, I am critical of 25 Bxc4, and suggest 25 Bxc7.

I think the suggestion: '34. Nb7? Ne7+!' was meant as 34 Nf7+! However, (34 Nf7+) Rxf7 and White can resign.

Nov-22-11  sicilianhugefun: Passed pawns must be pushed!

  pawn to QB4: wow, to see that article again after all these years. My thanks. I see my memory is failing: in trying to recall it I had conflated it with another from a few years later, which began something like - "Gary Kasparov, just 16, looks more and more the player to extend the Soviet Union's domination of the world title into the 21st century". Again, there have been worse predictions.
Nov-14-13  MrJafari: Isn't it better for White to take e8 rook by d6 knight instead of return to b7?
Nov-14-13  Shams: <MrJafari> Your question isn't clear. Please give move numbers.
Mar-02-14  MrJafari: <shams> in 34 and 35, white's knight can attack to rook as I think.
Mar-02-14  shivasuri4: MrJafari, 34...d2 threatens Qh3#, so 35.Kh2 is necessary.
Apr-10-14  MrJafari: <shivasuri4> Thanks to answer,I meant before 34...d2,Of course finally White loses!
