Nov-23-04  siggemannen: if 19. ♕xg6 then 19...f5 and 20...♘xd4 with black's knight taking a dominant position if 49. ♔xd3 then 49... ♕f5 and 50... ♕e5
Jul-07-07  sanyas: Another king walk! Petrosian was used to this.
Nov-06-10  xombie: I think this appears in Watson's Grandmaster chess strategy book. Homage to the greatest of all kingwalkers. This guy sure had imagination.
Dec-19-10  xombie: A further note. Watson comments on one of those games, that it was not so much that the kingside was weak, but that it was the presence of the king that made it look bad (I think it was Alekhine-Nimzo). Hence, move the king and all becomes good.
