Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-28-03  Spitecheck: The Queen's Indian is generally considered a pretty solid defense but Adorjan cut's it to pieces here, with a little help from his opponent. 14... Kf8 is weird, played to prevent Nxe6, but I'm not sure the king move was the answer, certainly the fireworks start after that.


Nov-28-03  technical draw: I think 11...d3, was pre-mature.
Nov-28-03  Spitecheck: Most of the GM games on here diverge on the previous move actually (Bc5). You'd think black would develop his pieces normally and castle like any normal club player.

I agree ...d3 seems a little odd, black seems to increase the tactical dynamics on the board when the position dictates that tactical skirmishes will probably favour white. Can't he just play ..Nc6 instead or is he afraid of his knight being thrown to h6?


Nov-28-03  technical draw: I think he should just go ahead and play 11...Nc6. If white forces the knight to h6 so be it. Black can later play 0-0-0.
Nov-28-03  Spitecheck: Yeah I thought castling long might be the go but his queenside formation looks pretty ugly as far as your everyday king shelter goes) and white's pawn storm will probably gain tempi on the way through, unless the bishop and knight (c5/c6) vacate the premises.....safer than the kingside appears though especially if the knight ends up fixed on h6 for awhile.

...Nc6 maybe should have been played before ...Bc5 though, you know the old rule knights before bishops and then something else. But maybe Kudrin wanted to make it look as though his knight went to ...g4 for a reason other than white kicked it there (the centre is always the target of everything though e5).


Nov-28-03  technical draw: I haven't heard somebody say "..the go of it" in a long time. That was a favorite saying of one of the greatest scientists of all time: James Clerk Maxwell.

Oct-06-14  SpiritedReposte: Good miniature where black gets caught grabbing pawns.

19. Nxe6! must be declined as fxe6 Bd6+ will win.

Then the knight continues its rampage taking out g7.

Oct-06-14  Howard: This game was analyzed in Chess Life, as I recall. I believe it took place at the New York Open.

  perfidious: I also annotated this game, but not for Chess Life--it was a rather less known publication. Do not recall who wrote on it for CL, but I am sure they did a better job than this (at the time) borderline 2300 player!
