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?

  FSR: <botvinnik64> Yes. Opening Explorer

K W Troff vs D Naroditsky, 2011.
Your score: 34 (par = 28)


Aug-25-14  Ke2: reminds you of Gufeld's "Mona Lisa"
Dec-21-18  TheBish: <Ke2: reminds you of Gufeld's "Mona Lisa">

I wouldn't go that far! Gufeld's "Mona Lisa" is probably his most brilliant game; I doubt that Naroditsky would consider this his best game. Not really that brilliant, just good play after poor play on White's part.

Aug-28-19  Hokey pokey: Yes 6.Qb3 is a bad idea in this position. 6...Nc6 is a great response, if 7.Qb7 then 7...ed4 and White's big center is crumbling. 8.Qc6 Bd7 is good for Black.
