Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-06-07  fromoort: Very nice tactics! I just love Smyslov's play.
Jul-10-09  Everett: Radjabov has begun using a similar system as white. It resembles the Smyslov Variation in the Slav defense, in reverse. It seems incredibly safe and solid for white.
May-27-18  ndg2: What happens after 21...Nxb2? Perhaps 22.Rb1 Bxc3 and then what? 23. Bd2? with the idea 23...Bxd2 24.Rxb2?
