Dec-26-05  ReikiMaster: With all respect to Akobian who won his game with Bruzon - but after move 16 white has both his knights on edges of the board. Isn't this the classical moment to get active in the center?
Dec-26-05  azaris: Which central square did you have in mind for the knights? d4? d5? c4? f4?
Dec-26-05  aw1988: Chess rules only go as far as common sense goes. If you look at the entire structure of the KID, well, it would be safe to say Tarrasch is not the practicioner.

In that case common sense can take you up to FIDE master level. I guarantee it.

Dec-26-05  aw1988: Not even. Even an FM takes the plusses and minuses of any position, including ignoring said principles.
Dec-26-05  SnoopDogg: <Not even. Even an FM takes the plusses and minuses of any position, including ignoring said principles.>

Kramnik disagrees with you <aw1988> and so do I.

<Spiegel Online: Where does your intellectual modesty come from?

Kramnik: ...Suddenly you feel that one needs to create a little space here and attack there. But why it is like that, you donít know. To play according to textbooks is fine, up to a certain level. Perhaps up to master level, but not to grandmasters. At this level you have to feel the game. It comes to you.>

I admit some instances you just have to trust your instincts or go against chess logic for a moment. Otherwise most master level play is just a series of plans following the principles of chess that are justified/supported through tactics. Maybe Reshevsky demonstrated this play the best.

Dec-26-05  aw1988: I'm not saying anything about plans, I meant the pure "knight on the rim is grim" kind of thing.
Dec-26-05  SnoopDogg: Oh I thought you meant like control of the dark squares and exploiting holes something like that.
