Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-04-10  Professor Chaos: in the opening black makes all of these pawn moves on the queenside and yet white still wins the queenside, then the center and the kingside lol
Apr-04-10  aktajha: Yes exactly, all those pawn moves. Why not simply develop after move 5? 0-0 Be7 6. d3 Qb6 7 Be3 nc6 etc. looks more logical to me. This is just overextending and letting white get all chances.
Apr-05-10  ajile: Somebody won with the KIA?

I don't understand.

Apr-05-10  DiscoJew: These things are hard to evaluate, but I tend to agree with you guys, blacks overextended early on (well that Q-side Knight was just begging to be pushed around) and white just made good moves and then shifted it all over to the Q-side to dominate and win. Lovely exclaim petite combination to win!
Jul-01-12  Everett: <ajile: Somebody won with the KIA?

I don't understand.> sarcasm?

Jul-01-12  King Death: <Everett>: <ajile> likes things like the Modern Benoni and a lot of players that play those super sharp openings think that the KIA is pretty lame. Me, I could lose in anything when I played so it doesn't matter! FTR I don't remember if I ever played the KIA for White, it was a lot of 1.d4 or c4 after I stopped playing e4 like every other junior did back then.
Jul-01-12  Cushion: Black's opening was fine. I was under the impression that when you play b4, you are supposed to play d5. The a6/b5 defense against the closed Sicilian is sound.
Jul-02-12  Everett: Opening Play from both sides in this game is sound, yet it is clear that ..a6 is a waste of time vs the KIA set-up. The fact that Black often plays ..e6 also bodes well for the 1st player. Rublevsky gained plenty of space, smooth development and a steady initiative.

And it later turns into a Botvinnik-System anyway, which is solid and dangerous in the right hands.
