Kibitzer's Corner
May-02-05  paladin at large: Fine maneuvering by Flesch, especially by the minor pieces, as well as pressure exerted by his forward pawns. 17. Nf6+ is a pretty move.

Where did Korchnoi go wrong?

May-02-05  Everett: By playing d5. Allowing e5 to be filled by a pawn in the KIA is asking for fat trouble, and Korchnoi got it.

g6, e6 and d6 pawn structure, IMHO, is a better system against the KIA from the Sicilian

  GrahamClayton: Excellent maneuvring by Flesch with his knight with 12.♘c3, 13.♘d1, 15.♘e3, 16.♘g4 and 17.♘f6+ - "In closed positions with extended pawn chains and no prospect of opening a file or diagonal, the most active piece is the knight and its role is to weaken the enemy position" - "Planning in Chess", Batsford, 1983, p. 69.
