Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-09-07  Resignation Trap: With 30...Nh8 and 31...g6, Panov creates his own Treysman Knight (see Reshevsky vs G Treysman, 1938 )!
Aug-02-09  King.Arthur.Brazil: After block the center, Panov avoids the opening on Qsize, so gives Smyslov way to explode the Ksize the way he wants. After g4 and b5, black seems waiting for die.
Aug-30-09  anjyplayer: Exchange took place on 40th move. Does modern rules allow it ?
Mar-28-10  waustad: I suspect that he may have just waited until the adjournment at move 40 so he would have all the time to think that he wanted. I don't know if this tourney had WC type of rules, but moving the king all the way out of the way until move 40 makes sense with most modern time controls.
