Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-04-02  bishop: The premature 10.e5 is easily refuted by Tal.
Oct-04-04  tacticsjokerxxx: 23.-♘c6!!

I like that move..

Jun-08-05  bomb the bishop: <bishop> well, its not exactly premature, the problem is that white should have responded by 12. ♗g5, ♕b6 13. o-o, ♘e5 where as the game is equal or 12. o-o, ♘e5, 13. ♗f4, ♗f5 14. ♘e5, ♗e5, ♕d2, ♘d7, ♖ad1 and the game would be equal regarding material advantage, seems like e6 was a big mistake! (by the way, good coincidence you being bishop as well)
Jun-15-06  luzhin: Pity Niemala didn't play on with Kh1 allowing Tal to demonstrate 28 Ng3+!! and mate next move, however the knight is captured.
Jul-14-08  devioustalfan: the Benoni and semi tarrasch transpose frequently and they make great games w/good chances for black.
