Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-05-05  Flo: Oh, Beliavsky wins against Kasparov in not more than 36 moves! That's a strong player!
Feb-05-05  jmcd2002: Kasparov was born in '63. That makes him about 16 at this time - not yet in his prime. Nevertheless, an interesting game, though I have to confess I don't "get" the Benoni at all (even though I've been mauled by the Benoni and the Benko a few times each...).
Oct-16-07  armis: Black didn't play vigorously enough to obtain counterplay, got cramped and then his weaknesess started to tell. This is a fine example of exploiting the weaknesess of the black queenside loosened by the move a6 and blockaded by a5.
May-21-09  WhiteRook48: 33 Bd8!
May-28-09  ToTheDeath: 23...Rad8 is fine for Black.
