  Bobsterman3000: Why would you ever want to snatch a pawn in a simul against Kasparov ??

Dec-11-06  Archives: Because he had cajones. Well either that or he had a tuna sandwich for breakfast.

Dec-11-06  setebos: you mean cojones Archives,I mean I would not trade my cojones for cajones,although I might need a big cajon to carry them around if I had a hernia :))
Dec-12-06  Archives: Well, either way, I got balls of steel. You could navigate them all the way to hell.

Call me Ishmael!

Jan-02-10  KingG: 12.e5 would have won a piece immediately, but maybe Kasparov wanted to play for mate instead.
Oct-13-11  Eliskases: Though White won here convincingly, I wonder if 8.Bd3 is indeed perfectly safe for White (putting aside the vast differences between the two players here, and assuming that both players are just about level in their respective playing strength).

As White, I tend to get a similar position after: 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. e3 O-O 5. Bd3 b6 6. Ne2 Bb7, and here I play 7.a3 which is usually followed by either 7...Be7 or 7...Bxc3 8.Nxc3 d5 (or 8...d6); but but I have yet to be confronted with 7...Bxg2?! or 7...Bxc3 8.Nxc3 Bxg2?!. There are not many games in which Bxg2 is really played by Black; and in those few, White tends to win.

However, since forewarned is forearmed, I would like to know if Bxg2 by Black in the aforementioned positions is really refuted or can Black equalise or even get an advantageous position by accurate and careful play (in that case, I guess that one would be better off playing 7.O-O first as a safety precaution, though, as for now I still stick with 7.a3).

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
