|Jul-28-04|| ||chess4games: Kasparov lost. He should have taked as many pawns as he can. The pawns will queen soon enough. Good game. |
|Aug-01-06|| ||gambitfan: Why 2... dxc4 ????
It looks like a bad move : wastes one step and helps its opponent develop his bishop...
Chess Opening Explorer gives for 2... dxc4 : 5 games ; 60% / 20% / 20%
Much better seems 2... Nf6 isn't it ???
|Aug-01-06|| ||aw1988: Not necessarily a bad move. A one piece development advantage does not count for much. And it's very close to the QGA.|
|Aug-01-06|| ||gambitfan: What does QGA mean ?|
|Aug-01-06|| ||WannaBe: Queens Gambit Accepted, also are QGD, Queens Gambit Declined, KGA, KGD, KID, QID, CIA, FBI, MI6, MI5, OSS, KGB, GRU, NSA....|
|Aug-01-06|| ||aw1988: <WannaBe> I'm not sure he means your openings. I know you mean well, though.|
|May-12-15|| ||Honza Cervenka: 15.Qxd8 with next 16.Bxb6 and 17.f5 wins piece.
Instead of 36.Be5+ it was better to play 36.Ba7 with a threat Bd4+, which forces after 36...Kg7 (what else?) 37.Nf5+ an ending of different colour Bishops with probable draw. N vs B ending was lost for white.
32...Re2? is hard to understand. Of course, black should have played 32...Qe6.
