Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-08-04  InspiredByMorphy: A fine win derived of patience.
Oct-01-06  desiobu: I don't understand 7. dxe5. Kasparov plays the same thing in a similar position against Tal. It seems unatural to me given the pin, and potential for doubled f pawns.

And then 10. gxf3 instead of Rxf3, I guess to hold the black king from castling, but the file was quickly blocked.

Oct-01-06  desiobu: On second thought gxf3 actually works out better, supporting the e pawn, and preventing Ng4 at some point down the line.

  Tabanus: I believe Black is Jens Ove Fries Nielsen, but am unable to back it up by evidence.
Apr-27-12  SimonWebbsTiger: @<Tabanus>

Black is indeed Jens Ove. The game is from the U17 Cadets Championship, which was won by the later Icelandic GM Jon Arnason.

Apr-27-12  whithaw: This variation is well known, where white plays Rd3, then accepts doubled f-pawns. Fischer was a champion of this variation at one time. Kasparov's play looks a lot like Karpov's or Fischer's play here.... I wonder if he had studied them....
Apr-27-12  King Death: <whithaw: ...Kasparov's play looks a lot like Karpov's or Fischer's play here.... I wonder if he had studied them....>

It would be hard to believe that he hadn't studied their games.

  tamar: Kasparov describes the awe that Fischer inspired with this passage about the 4th game of the Taimanov match.

<I well remember how everyone followed this match and how with Rostik Korsunsky (now deceased, unfortunately) who played all Fischer's openings, I looked at the endgame at the Baku Pioneers' Palace, admiring and being amazed at how Fischer was able to separate the position into component parts with such simplicity...> OMGP IV Fischer
