Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-28-06  rjsolcruz: 6.Nc3 Nc6
Panno Variation, the sharpest continuation. Wojo, who like Tal is also from Latvia, countered the Classical Variation’s 6... Nbd7 of Garkov in Warsaw 1989 with a knight sac on the 15th move and of Kasmiran in Bali 2000 with the mother of all sac’s to win in the end game.
Jul-28-06  rjsolcruz: 7.O-O e5
The alternative 7... Bf5 was played by Rasik in Budapest 1993 and Wojo showed up with another QUEEN sacrifice on the 36th move. Maybe, aside from chess, they also teach magic to grade school students in Latvia.
Jul-28-06  rjsolcruz: 8.d5
Fine in The Ideas Behind The Chess Openings, “White’s play is anchored in the pawns at e4 and d5 and neither should be exchanged or weakened without good reason.”

However, it is interesting to note that Wojo worked on the alternative 8.h3 vs Petermann in Amsterdam 1994 and produced another sacrifice; a rook on the 35th move.

Jul-28-06  rjsolcruz: 11.a4
Wojo played 11.Qb3 vs Nijboer in Wijk aan Zee 1994 and pulled off another rabbit; a rook sac on the 18th move!
Jul-28-06  rjsolcruz: 11... Bd7
Wojo refuted the move 11... h6 of Krechetov in San Francisco 2001 by living up to his reputation; sacrificing a Queen on the 27th move.
Jul-28-06  rjsolcruz: 15.Rd1
Capablanca in Chess Fundamentals, “In the opening, rooks may have no open files, yet they will usually stand better on the central files since there is the potential of pawn exchanges which open a file.”
Jul-28-06  rjsolcruz: 18.Na5
Penelope Cruz in Bandidas, “There’s always a first time.”
Jul-28-06  rjsolcruz: 21.Be3
Emanuel Lasker in Manual of Chess, “The target for the attack has to be a weakness in the hostile position.”
Jul-28-06  rjsolcruz: 24.Rac1
Tarrasch Formula: The rook’s proper place is behind the passed pawn, whether it be his own or an enemy.
Jul-28-06  rjsolcruz: 27.Nd5
Soltis in Turning Advantage Into Victory in Chess, “Forks, pins, threats of various kinds, these are the bricks and mortar of technique.”
