Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-18-10  ktatlow: This game is cited in Dunnington's "Defensive Play" as an example of "breaking the bind," black's weakness of d6 and d5.
Jan-18-11  Salaskan: Shirov had a nice posiion after eliminating white's 'bad' bishop because he got conrol over the light squares and d5 was impossible to prevent. Karpov vs Nunn, 1985 shows how black can easily be suffocated if he doesn't.
