Feb-15-08  ughaibu: This should be 39....Nxb4, otherwise, it's okay.
Mar-06-09  Rubenchik: Correct. It is 39... Nxb4, and not Nxf5

  keypusher: The problem with adjournments is that a lot of interesting positions didn't get played out over the board.
Mar-12-15  RookFile: In the King's Indian, if black has to play a move like ....Bf8, it usually means he's in big trouble.

  keypusher: Another reason to regret adjournments is here: Botvinnik vs Pachman, 1960

Though <Euripides> provided the winning lines.

Apr-21-16  PJs Studio: I'm studying g3 against the KID and I'm bitterly disappointed this position wasn't played out.
Jan-22-17  zydeco: Botvinnik follows an idea of Furman's - Furman vs Nezhmetdinov, 1959 - with 15.Qc2 and 16.Rf1!?
