  Mateo: Svidler was 2430. His opponent is unknown to me. Svidler shows great technical skill to take advantage of Black's inacurracies.

Sep-29-09  timhortons: that king walk to the center is just great! it wins the game!

the first pawn to cross the mid line will be the first one to reach the 8th rank.

ok svidler use the belgrade gambit during the 90,s as shown in the databse, i had one more game featured in kaufman book that was not included in the databse.

svidler use the belgrade gambit and drop it off later on, just like gary kasparov had sad against scotch , that against a perfect defense its very risky.

Jan-05-19  PJs Studio: Iím doing a quick investigation of the Belgrade and wow! This is an amazing game by Svidler. Very Instructive display. Showing exactly how white should go about attacking blacks weak points. So good - makes me not want to play 1...e5!
