Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-28-07  WarmasterKron: Yikes, witness the attacking potential of the Modern. Rather than drift calmly through quiet, positional waters, Davies decides on a counter-attack in the centre.

17...Qh4+ is a nice touch, proving that the threat of ...Bxa1 is stronger than the execution - White is forced to expend a tempo to give himself a temporary respite.

May-19-10  Archswindler: 9... b5!

Of course, there is no need to waste time preparing with ...Rb8 or ...a6, black can just push the b-pawn anyway, because 10. Nxb5 is met by ...Nxe4.

Usually in the pirc and modern, it is black who must prepare his counterplay quickly, or be murdered in his bed. This game shows what happens when white is too slow with his development!
