Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-23-05  siggemannen: I wonder, is the early 11.g4 push still stands as a good move or it have been refuted
Oct-19-05  Abaduba: It seems really risky, but a whole bunch of players have apparently used it with good results: Games Like Taimanov vs Ivkov, 1962 It doesn't look like Black can immediately exploit the weakening of the White kingside because of lack of development, and the g-pawn often ends up as a roadblock rather than a target.
Nov-23-05  aw1988: f3+g4 is an idea of Portisch, dubbed the "anti-KID" by some players.
Nov-23-05  refutor: larsen recommended it as well in "learn from the grandmasters"
Nov-23-05  KingG: I prefer 11.Be3.
Nov-23-05  sitzkrieg: Jeej, what shall i do, Follow the recomm. of King or Larsen. Ill sleep on it..
Nov-23-05  sitzkrieg: just kidding
Nov-24-05  KingG: <sitzkrieg> It's the recommendation of Korchnoi actually, and he's had quite a lot of success with it.
Nov-24-05  euripides: 16 gxh5 is surprising.
Nov-24-05  refutor: <16.gxh5 is surprising> it is actually...the whole idea of the f3, g4 is to block the kingside so black can't fight through and take the game elsewhere. in this game though, taimanov allows black to come through on the kingside, partially because of his 16th move
Nov-24-05  aw1988: 16. h4!? is interesting, but perhaps too audacious and dubious(?). I've played it twice in serious tournament games, having come up with an idea: 16. h4 Ng6 17. gxh5 Nxh4 18. Bxh4 gxh4 19. Qe1 Bf6!, and I lost, and then an "improvement": 17. hxg5!?!?!? Qxg5 18. Kh1 hxg4 19. fxg4 Nf6 20. Rg1 (overprotection!) and I won after Bf3, Be1, Qe2-g2, followed by Be1-f2, Ne1 and Nf3. An interesting idea, but a little strange for a serious game!
Nov-24-05  euripides: <aw> well that's one way to defend your king :-) Amazing stuff !
