Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-29-04  Bobsterman3000: Ouch. 30...Bc5


Aug-04-07  engmaster: 10) ...,bd7 an alternative to Q-c7 and ktxd4 after any exchanges black will place the bishop on c6.

12) b8 is another good position for the queen (v Qc7)and was introduced by Larsen.

15) Black has pressure on b2 and d4, better was simplification with Ktxc6 followed by e5. The resulting pawn sacrifice played instead does not result in sufficient counterplay

  GrahamClayton: I think Shibarevich moved the wrong rook with 15.♖fd1. 15.♖ad1 looks more logical, leaving the rook on f1 to support the f4-f5 pawn advance.

M Sibarevic vs Kasparov, 1979.
Your score: 63 (par = 38)


PS. Par is now 39.

Oct-30-13  Howard: Kasparov states in a New in Chess column back in 2006 that back at the time this game was played, he was briefly playing the Caro-Kann. But he went on to say that on the day this game was played, Petrosian (who was also in that same tournament) recommended that in the event that K's opponent opened with 1.e4, then for Kasparov to just "push the c-pawn forward two squares (rather than one)".

Hmmmmm......likes like Iron Tigran turned out to be quite right !
