Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-24-10  jerseybob: This is the same line that occurred in Fischer-Kholmov, Havana '65 up to black's 18th. Fischer's 19.b4? met with 19..Nd4!, but I remember 19.b3 was one suggested improvement. So, what went wrong with the "improvement"? Fischer never again played 17.Ng5 to my knowledge. Maybe the whole line's a lemon.
Nov-18-12  Eduardo Bermudez: The same Ruy Lopez C98, was played in Kavalek-Karpov. Caracas,1970, 1-0.
Dec-20-12  jerseybob: Eduardo: Let me slightly amend your statement: it's the same Lopez variation up to black's 16..c4. On the 17th move comes a fork in the road, which knight to move. This game and the infamous Fischer-Kholmov 1965 went 17.Ng5, a move that may be unplayable. Fischer seemed to think so; he switched thereafter to 17.Nf5, e.g. against O'Kelly 1970. Kavalek also switched to 17.Nf5 against Karpov in the game you cite, and Reshevsky played 17.Nf5 in his famous 1970 win against Smyslov.

Dec-30-17  Eduardo Bermudez B.: Fifty years ago Cuellar defeated Milos Forman's friend
