Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-19-03  ughaibu: His chess is remarkably controlled (Karjakin's).
Feb-04-04  ughaibu: I've been looking at a couple of Karjakin's games and cant help but feel he's a defender rather than an attacker. He always has his pieces remarkably well coordinated which gives the impression that he's relying on his talent rather than putting ideas into the game. Nevertheless, in this game his early play on the kingside looks very provocative and I wonder if this is going to become one of the distinguishing features of his style. These games are also indicative: Azmaiparashvili vs Karjakin, 2003 Karjakin vs Topalov, 2003
Feb-05-04  nasmichael: Peace ughaibu. I hope all is well. Karjakin's prophylaxis is well thought out and also instructive to me. I am glad you brought my attention to this game. He plays very calmly, in this review thanks to ChessGames, and with focus.
Feb-05-04  TrueFiendish: "Karjakin"...isn't that what you do when no plane is available?
Feb-05-04  TrueFiendish: Taking on e4 and then the sequence involving Nh7, castles, let white take the pawn back, and then Nf6 is very pleasing, though. Yes, superb control.
Aug-11-04  nasmichael: After some time away from this game, I see some new restraint and control from this game of Karjakin's, and I appreciate it more, although I am not in the stage of development where I could readily duplicate that control, yet. In time, ...
Aug-13-05  lentil: anybody remember a 60's tv show: the man from U.N.C.L.E.? heroes were named napoleon solo and ilya karjakin (ok ok 'kuryakin', what's your point?). i just get a flashback whenever i see this kid's name
