Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-01-05  Kingdumb: Balashov's Sicilians are a breath of fresh air from the stale "do it by the book" moves that you get so sick of seeing. This game is just another wonderful example. From studying his games it appears that many of his opponents are just ill prepared for what he throws at them.
