Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-22-11  puzzlepatzer: This game is a great example of how not to play the KID as white. It seems as if white is trying his hardest to activate black's DSB. Not only that, he opens the b-file and black is the only who benefits from it.
Jun-23-11  syracrophy: 13.0-0-0?? He practically walked in wolf's mouth!
Jun-23-11  DanielBryant: Why not 7.Qxb7?
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <DanielBryant> He evidently didn't want to play 7.Qxb7 because of 7...Nxd4, giving Black a beautiful knight on d4, which he can later reinforce with ...c5 or ...e5. But it can't have been worse than the game continuation.
Jun-23-11  msoewulff: is this a proper dismantling of the four pawns attack or is it all poor play by white?

  FSR: <msoewulff: is this a proper dismantling of the four pawns attack or is it all poor play by white?>

The latter. 5...♗g4 has been played before and White has never responded with 6.♕b3. Opening Explorer Chasing after pawns is not the theme of the Four Pawns Attack.

Jun-23-11  botvinnik64: 6.Qb3 looks dubious; isn't Nf3 and/or Be2 the normal way to play?
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <botvinnik64> Yes. Opening Explorer
