Kibitzer's Corner
May-27-07  Karpova: What a great start for this candidate match!
Involving my beloved Judit Polgar and the Caro Kann together with so much excitement! Bareev's preparation surprised Judit and he ended up with 3 pawns for the exchange. A lot of people said she'd lose but she kept on fighting and displayed her great defensive skills! Bareev lacked accuracy and in the end she was able to get away with a draw.
May-27-07  outplayer: 17...Rd5 is nice. I love this B19.
May-27-07  outplayer: 52...Bd6 and an engine maybe could manage to win.
May-27-07  outplayer: Bareev put Polgar to defend but Judit has bright defensive skills too.
May-27-07  Shajmaty: <outplayer: 17...Rd5 is nice. I love this B19.> I don't believe 17...Rd5 to be as solid as the more usual 17...Bd6.
May-27-07  Wolfgang01: Keeping the three pawns from marching is an impressive performance of Judit. Go on, at last You'll make it!!

May-27-07  eainca: In the eight games I can find in the database for Polgar v, Bareev her score is +3 -2 =3 and all eight times Bareev answered e4 with e6.

Jun-16-07  Cactus: Why not take the knight on move 21?
Jun-16-07  technical draw: <Cactus> Look carefully and you can see a Bishop glaring at a Queen.
Jun-17-07  Cactus: Oh, how did I miss that? Thanks.
Jun-17-07  Cactus: Why would Bareev allow a draw? Couldn't he win in this position?
