Dec-20-05  barefootin: Stopping Black's final cheapo -
32 Qxf3?? h3+!

We already see the systematic mind
in development here, with this
opening an in relation to a couple
of previous games, where the same
kingside minor arrangement with the
fianchetto was played, altho the
d-pawn went to d3. This game eventually
develops into a Caro (reversed) with
a Black (White) bishop fianchetto -
in other words, the placement considered the most optimal. Development issues arise - to a certain extent, it doesn't look like Silman knows what he's doing - that's
just a general impression, but he
would later learn to focus on
specific minor pieces and extract the
maximum energy out of them - how to
mold the position, and so forth.
We see a pre-sage of that from the
early Silman in the Pupols game, where
Pupols is basically just being kicked
around pretty well. It's highly instructive to witness the DEVELOPMENT of a player. Compare this player with
Ron Henley, for ex:, a player who
began just EXPLODING tactically after
a certain point (early game with Rohde).
