Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-29-13  sakredkow: It's only fair. In the first round at this tournament Olafsson was the beneficiary of an incredible blunder in F Olafsson vs Tal, 1971. At this point he must have been wondering why it was so tough to get a normal game of chess. True, Karpov allowed him an easy draw with the black pieces in round two.
Dec-30-13  jerseybob: sakredcow: I wouldn't compare Olafsson's 25.Nf4 with the blunder that Tal made. True, 25.Nf4 is a blunder, but white has a terrible position in any case, whereas Tal threw away a clearly drawn game.
Jul-14-15  Zugzwangovich: Was 25.Nf4 really Olafsson's big blunder? In the tournament book Gheorghiu and Suetin's analysis goes 25...g5! 26.Ne2?? (26.e6 Be6! 27.Ne6 Rg2 28.Kg2 Qg3 "with advantage to Black."). In this line it's beyond me to understand why Black couldn't simply play 26...Be8.
