Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-17-07  Maynard5: This game features extremely sharp opening play, in which White is able to win a minor piece. The position actually has some features in common with the Benko gambit. 17. qxg4 would be answered by 17. ... exd5, but White's forecful 17. Ne4! decides the issue.
Feb-22-09  Aniara: Ivanchuk played 7. ... c5 against Carlsen today, in Linares. Is this the only previous game where that move was played?
Jul-31-09  King.Arthur.Brazil: RAGOSIN was an early attacker, and his Grunfeld oppening is like a war, he makes a gambit with 8...b5, and Smyslov accepted, and after 14.Bc4! the lost P didn't "get back!". So black tries with e6! create more tension, but 16.e5 and Ne4 shows that there's no reason for this attack. After all fightened tatics, white win a R by N, and 2P, easy to win.
