Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-25-06  Tomlinsky: Here's one way not to handle a Sicilian with Mr Nickel.
Aug-25-06  Tomlinsky: For king side attack to have any real venom preventing the black night getting to d5 with 9.Nxc6 then Bc4? Otherwise the g5 square never truly becomes weak with the a2-g8 bishop wielding any power when the attack gets under way.

Castling long adds nothing really at this point imo if the intention is to start firing straight away, the king may have been better on f2 if the rooks need connecting and firing down the f/h files.

I think the fomaous Bobby Fischer maxim was taken a bit too literally here as if it was some kind of magic wand.

Half a plan at most.

Aug-26-06  tolow47: Everything was good until 21.Ndb5. I like what he did on the king side, just another one of those blunders.
Aug-26-06  Tomlinsky: Should have retreated the knight maybe but I think the g4 variation as opposed to the O-O-O one is more potent personally. The attack was too early for me and the white squared bishop was potentially a key piece but choked easily. A prophylactic move to a2 maybe although things move along fast in these lines.
Aug-26-06  tolow47: Your right about the king side attack. 12.Bh6 was entirely immature. Keep the white bishop, and move along the f and g pawns and keep the queen side pawns at bay and white could have had an easy win.
Feb-01-09  WhiteRook48: Class did not take Classes
Jan-18-15  SpiritedReposte: <Ahead of the Class>
