Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-06-07  fromoort: Wow! Nice!
Apr-06-07  chaarl: I agree, <fromoort>, very neat finish by Smyslov
Nov-28-10  Wyatt Gwyon: This game is given as Smyslov vs Hausman in Nigel Davie's "the dynamic reti." Nice game from Smyslov, though, whoever his opponent was.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: 3.b4 constitutes the Reti-Smyslov Variation, a personal favorite during my secondary school and university years. One common quirk of this unusual line is that the center pawns don't move at all until very late (here on move 15), and yet end up dominating the middle of the board.
Nov-29-10  Wyatt Gwyon: <nescio> Ah, I see. Case closed, lol.

  NARC: Are these type of central steamrollers really legal?
Nov-29-10  Wyatt Gwyon: <NARC> They're frowned upon, but generally they're allowed to slide until they get excessive. It's like holding and hitting boxing or something.
Nov-29-10  mastermind7994: I thought at the beginning that this game ended in a draw. I wondered how it would be possible after 28.dxe7. I saw the game score again and I was glad to realise that White was won here.

  Domdaniel: As <An Englishman> pointed out, this is the Smyslov Variation of the Reti, or the Reti-Smyslov. It is *not* a King's Indian Attack, which tends to feature d3 and e4 rather than c4. It could be termed a Reti-vs-Grunfeld, Smyslov Var.
