Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-30-02  morphynoman2: This is the best of Pachman's games, after Kasparov Chess.
Jul-20-03  Tigran Petrosian: Black should have played 8...c5! instead of Nc6?
Dec-24-11  jerseybob: To add to Tigran's comment, Uhlmann missed another chance for c5, in the sequence 9..Na5 10.Bd3,c5. True, white could then "win" a pawn with 11.dc, but at what cost, positionally?
Dec-24-11  King Death: < jerseybob: To add to Tigran's comment, Uhlmann missed another chance for c5, in the sequence 9..Na5 10.Bd3,c5...>

Black doesn't play the Simagin to get ...c7-c5 in right off.

<...True, white could then "win" a pawn with 11.dc, but at what cost, positionally?>

Here's an example from another opening where White plays dc and his opponent sacs a pawn, but the strategic ideas are the same: Kasparov vs Korchnoi, 1983.

Mar-07-14  RookFile: Looks like a good game of "Pac Man", the way white ate up the queenside. :)
