Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-18-05  Poisonpawns: gm 9 1983 canidates qf The match is over at this point and beliavsky cannot catch up.So he switches from his beloved Queens Gambit to the old Benoni for a game and gets trashed 15 moves of theory to end up in a clearly worse position.On move 29.Rxg3?? Beliavsky must have seen a ghost,because what he thought he saw was not there and he resigned fast.Great match for Kasparov on the road to the championship.I think his next oppenent was Gm Victor (the terrible) Korchnoi.

  hedgeh0g: Perhaps Nxg1 instead of the immediate Rg8 would have been an improvement for Black.

  Fusilli: The natural square for Black's queenside Knight in the Benoni is c7 (to support the thematic P-b5 advance), not b4, where it basically does nothing, as this game is an example of.
