|Aug-15-13|| ||Gazman5: Nice to see a 1.d4 player break out the Kings Gambit against Gata Kamsky when he needs a win. From the looks of it Gata was completely taken by surprise and he's gained a clear opening advantage, it's a question of whether he has the technique to make anything of it against black's queenside pawn weaknesses and doubled f pawns, as well as his own passed d pawn which looks ready to mobilise.|
