Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-19-07  hellopolgar: karpov is almost 60 so please, give this old man a break.
Jun-19-07  Artar1: Actually, Karpov is 55, but nevertheless, chess is a very mentally and physically demanding activity, even for someone half Karpov's age. I think Karpov is doing well with all things considered.
Jun-19-07  pacelli: Hey I'd told everyone this Karpov dude could only look good with those in his age bracket and would get creamed by the younger generation. Unfortunately tunnel vision and short sighted kibitzers only saw that if one had a young age that meant they should have won, without having the maturity to see that being young didn't mean having a 'young' playing style like Roiz does. A young player can easily have an 'old man' playing style, and vice versa. Against 'old man' style Karpov does well against as he plays beter, but against the 'young man' style he gets dumped.

  Stonehenge: I'm a Karpov fan but this is an excellent game by Roiz.
Jun-21-07  Ulhumbrus: The move 10...Qc5 allows Roiz to keep the bishop pair by 11 Bc1.

After 21 Rxc5 Roiz has the bishop pair and his King is several moves ahead of Black's King in development in the ending.

Jun-21-07  euripides: A good line for giant-killing:

Riumin vs Capablanca, 1935

Jun-21-07  euripides: Almasi has won a couple of games recently with 12...a5:

I Ivanisevic vs Z Almasi, 2007

In general Black usually plays actively and tries to disrupt White's position in this line. Karpov tries to neutralise the two bishops by quieter play. 19.Ke2 is very nice. If 27...Bxe4 I guess 28.fxe4 and Black has trouble defending b7 ?

Jun-21-07  euripides: Kramnik vs Leko, 2006 is another example of quiet defence coming unstuck in this structure, though Kramnik seemed to think Leko got close to a draw. It was interesting that Leko played that endgame (which comes from a slightly different line of the classical Nimzo) more actively, and very successfully, in the candidates' matches.
Jun-22-07  strobane: So,why did Karpov resign?
Jun-22-07  Karpova: he's down a piece

  Chessmensch: Malcolm Pein discusses this game in his Sunday Telegraph chess column dated July 1. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/arts/gra... For those who see this post shortly after it's made, don't get confused by the date. It's July 1 in the UK some hours before the U.S.
