Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-13-04  Dudley: Reshevsky played the Exchange variation like a machine-he could win games like this in his sleep.
Jul-15-12  bystander: 14...♖e7 does not make much sense to me. Why not 14..♘8d7? White cannot get an advantage with continuing the minority attack e.g. 14.. ♘8d7 15 b4 b6 16 b5 c5 17 a4 ♖ac8 and I think the position is equal.
Jul-15-12  bystander: 20) ♕b2? does not look good to me, because after 20..♘g6 21 b5 c5! is possible. Although black has a defensive position on the queenside, I cannot see a decisive breakthrough for white. Maybe white has to put some more pressure on the centre/kingside first. Any thoughts for another 20th move for white?
Oct-01-14  kalavic: Classic minority attack. You can smell the masters by the cool shifting of the major pieces, advancing carefully. Amateurs are less patient and more blunt in carrying out their plans.
