  Honza Cervenka: I think that black should have exchanged Knights in move 22, although after 22...Rxd2 23.hxg4 Rb2 24.Qc6 white is still better. I don't like Ivanchuk's idea to play on the Queenside (11...a6, 12...b5 etc.). There are too many weaknesses to defend after that.
Feb-12-06  CobraChuk: Yes, that last part is right.
Altho this site is missing several
of Max Dlugy's games (even tho they
are tremendously valuable theoretically), there ought to be at least one where we see Max kicking
the Old Indian defense in the same
way on the queenside as Kasp did here
against the King's Indian.
Feb-12-06  Udit Narayan: Good game

Jul-09-08  Jesspatrick: Another stuffed King's Indian. This time it was from the a-file.
Jul-09-08  Shinermatt: Not that his position looks good or anything, but why exactly did black resign here? Is it because he's down two exchanges, or is there an immediate threat?
Jul-09-08  safar: < Shinermatt: Not that his position looks good or anything, but why exactly did black resign here? Is it because he's down two exchanges, or is there an immediate threat?> Both the rooks get to the seventh rank and Black's position collapses.
Jul-09-08  whatthefat: <Shinermatt>

I think White can continue with Rb7 and Raa7, when Black can't hold the 7th rank. And if Black plays 32...Nc5, then 33.Rbb8 forces the knight back to d7, after which the above plan of playing Rb7/Raa7 can be achieved.

Jul-10-08  Shinermatt: <whatthefat> Ah, very good. Thanks!
