Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-10-16  Saniyat24: This is dangerous line for black, it fiddles around in the opening too much, and all it gains is a good defensive structure on the Queen side. A tactical White player can always maneuver his attacking pieces to attack the soft spots of Black, while repelling any counter-attack from Black. What happens if Black sacrifices it's Queen side bishop early?
