Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-21-07  builttospill: I've been thinking about adopting the english for a while. Still not decided. This is an incredible demonstration on the power of two center pawns. Kramnik kept advancing them with tempo. At the end they are practically worth triple their normal value.

22 Ng5 starts a great sequence, where checkmate is threatened, followed by the exchange threatened, followed by Bd5, which blocks off the queen from supporting Rxe5. The simplification leads to an easy win.

Jul-21-07  Atking: Yes... Was it a blindfold performance?I would be very happy to play like that... seeing the board
Sep-21-13  Shams: This was indeed a blindfold game. At least Nikolic never had to look at the position after 20.d5.
