Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-15-07  ruelas007: This is a very good example of powerplay in the Queens Indian, and very illustrative about the power of the holes in the pawn structure
Jun-16-07  Marmot PFL: White seemed to make some random moves in the early midgame without ever finding a plan. Nice temporary pawn sac by Karpov.

  Jonathan Sarfati: Very strong dark-square play by Karpov. Note what Bronstein said in his 1953 book on the Zurich Candidates: a weak colour complex of one colour really becomes a weak complex of the other colour too, since the pieces on the other colour become vulnerable to the unchallenged pressure. In this case, Black controlled the dark squares, then annihilated White's three ♕-side ♙s, all on light squares.
Feb-07-10  syracrophy: Piece of cake!
Nov-25-11  maelith: Queen's Indian defense is light based opening, but in the end Karpov dominated the dark squares.

  Jarman: After the crushing 30. ...f5! White went downhill and never found any counterplay. Impressive.
