Kibitzer's Corner
May-19-05  aw1988: Kd2!! Kd7!! :-)
Sep-01-05  sitzkrieg: Why Kd7 !!


Sep-01-05  RookFile: Stein probably should have won this game, or at least steered it to a clear advantage.
Sep-01-05  sitzkrieg: Of course Stein should win of Fischer
Oct-26-06  GufeldStudent: A draw here is a fair result. After white defends with h4 then Bf5 will force a trade of bishops, when the rook ending looks very even.
May-31-11  Marmot PFL: The bishop pair and a-file control and enough to balance the weak f-pawns.

This is no Slav, but a harmless line of the QGD Exchange where White has played Nf3 earlier than usual, so that the bishop at c8 is permitted to freely develop to f5. A typical line instead is 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.cxd5 exd5 5.Bg5 c6, when White usually plays 6.e3 instead of 6.Nf3, so as to meet 6....Bf5 with 7.Qf3, as I played in a game with Timothy Taylor, Tanglewood Open 1981.
