Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-13-03  Rookpawn: In his book on the 1953 Zurich tournament, Bronstein says of 13. a3, "The first step towards disaster." (This is because the move indirectly weakens the d4 square; the black knight on c5 could reach this outpost via b3.) Then, he calls 17. Bh3 the "second step, and the fatal one," for it leads to the loss of the valuable e-pawn.
Mar-22-06  SniperOnG7: In the KID Fianchetto Variation, White's greatest asset is the flexibility of the position. Therefore it is often not advisable to lock up the centre so early with d4-d5. In addition, this allowed the thematic Nc5, which is generally a strong position for the Knight in the KID if it can be supported by the a-pawn, which guards against WHite's b-pawn push.
Aug-22-10  xombie: Yeah, Bh3 was just a ?? move by the GM. Probably drunk.
