Gee, do you think that Gligoric understands that one of Black's major strategic goals in the KID is the <occupation of the d4- and d3- squares> that are weakened after c2-c4 and e2-e4?

Black played 23...g5, which is an incredible concept. The computer says, though, that he got his move order wrong, and should have played 23...Bh3! first:

threatening 24...Rb1+, with mate next move. It seems that 2 pieces cover the blocking square on f1, but, whichever one goes there, the other one is pinned.

In the game, after 23...g5!? 24 Qxg5+ Kh8, White had the defense 25 Ng4! Rg8 26 Qd2

still losing, but a lot better than 25 Ng2??

Sep-02-10  MaxxLange: I mean: 25 Nc2??
