Mar-27-04  ConspTheory06: i like for white 28. Ng6+ where 28...Nxg6 is forced and then 29.Bxg7 it gives white a nice attack i think cause 29...Kg8 is forced or else the queen is lost by a revealed check.
Mar-27-04  dragon40: Whatever happened to Kamsky?? He was so touted as being the "heir apparent" at one time to the Chess Throne, but I have not seen/heard anything of him for over 2-3 years?? Maybe he got tired of his overbearing father mucking things up for him, or just could not take the rigors of GM chess at the highest levels? Anyone out there know?
Mar-28-04  SicilianDragon: Don't know about his chess, but he may soon become president of FIDE!!!!

Mar-31-04  dragon40: <siciliandragon> I read, and it is very interesting!! I wish him well, too bad he gave Chess up competitively, but I am glad we dont have to see his crazed father making all kinds of trouble in the tournaments now!
Sep-07-05  lopium: What happened for him so?
Oct-31-05  lentil: What the H is Kamsky doing expanding on the kingside when most of his army is boxed in on the ypsilateral corner?!
