Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-03-03  ughaibu: Here's a nice game of Ragozin's, he takes Smyslov out of his depth.
Jun-21-05  Pawn Ambush: Yes White was building up nicely then something happened in the center!
Jul-17-09  King.Arthur.Brazil: After 22.Qg3 it seems that black could find something by Qd2?? treaten Sc6 and to attack the white bishop at d3. But, the simply white reply 23.Sc3! wins the queen!
Jul-17-09  King.Arthur.Brazil: For this reason, I guess that black could try 22...Sc6, which makes possible the future reply 23...Qd2
Jan-20-18  tigreton: I think 21. cd5 opens lines for Black pieces, mainly the g1-a7 diagonal, where White's King is vulnerable. After 20. c4!, White should keep c4 under control, blockading the c5 pawn.
