Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-27-07  chestknot1: Can anybody explain the idea behind 23.g4. I know it opens b2h7 diagonal, but I feel there are a number of ways to increase the pressure and exploit the past pawn before he takes this action.
Jan-27-07  slomarko: there is also the possibility that karjakin after 3 losses wanted a quick draw.
Jan-27-07  chestknot1: True poor kid after starting the tournament so well probably did feel a bit tender.
Jan-27-07  chestknot1: Funnily enough I have been looking in the database and Carlsen played this opening upto move 22 as white. That game also ended in a draw. I wonder if Karjakin what to show Carlsen something he thought he had missed?
Feb-01-07  Llera: To chestknot1: "I have been looking in the database and Carlsen played this opening upto move 22 as white. That game also ended in a draw." Can you be more explicit and tell us which game are you referring to? I have been looking in the database, and I've found this game that Carlsen played as white, which was also a draw, so maybe it's this game the one you referred to: Carlsen-Krasenkow, Midnight Sun Chess Challenge (Norway) 2006
