Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-14-13  Chessman1504: This game looks Kasparovian, as visayanbraindoctor would say.
Sep-14-13  Chessman1504: 11.d5! is a neat pawn sacrifice. Given that I'm a patzer, I don't understand all it accomplishes, but it reminds me of Kasparov vs Ulf Andersson, 1981, where Kasparov sacs a pawn for piece activity and a lasting initiative.
Sep-14-13  Chessman1504: Note that the follow-ups to the pawn sacrifice are the same(12.Bg2 and 15.Bg2).
