Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-06-02  Sylvester: The last round of Gligoric's first interzonal tournament. He wanted a win to improve his score. He says 31. c4 was the beginning of his breakthrough.
Dec-06-02  PVS: The win moved him into a tie for 11-15 with his opponent among others. With the win he achieved an even score of +5=9-5 in what is rated as the strongest interzonal. Yanofsky and Bronstein (who won) were the youngest players there.
Dec-06-02  drukenknight: I love the way these GMs talk, "beginning of the end" "I dont know those were the exact words" but they always say something like: "There is no single losing move, black lulls himself to sleep" "a series of hammer blows now rocks blacks defenses" bla bla bla.

The game is draw until someone blunders, then it is up to his opponent to find the blunder.

Does Gligoric make any comment on blacks 32nd?

Dec-07-02  Sylvester: He does not single out that move. He has 34. Rxd5! and says "Since the position of the black king has become more exposed after the previous pawn sacrifice, this exchange sacrifice enables the white pieces to infiltrate into enemy territory."

  plang: 8..Qb6 was new and appears to be the best; 8..cxd and 8..Nc6 had been played previously. 9..Qxb2 would have been the consistent follow up; instead after 9..Nc6?! Black's queenside play was quickly neutralized and he had no answer for Whites build up in the center and on the kingside.
Nov-08-19  Granny O Doul: Having thought about this for seventeen years, I would tell drukenknight that though a computer may pinpoint the particular moment when the game is objectively lost, this does not make it the only important moment of the game for the two imperfect contestants.
