Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-21-02  bishop: Was 10.0-0-0 the dubious move this game, or was it 14.a3, or was it something else?

  Sneaky: O-O-O certainly seems optimistic. I personally love to castle long, as it always produces fighting chess, but I have some criteria. My rules for castling queenside are: #1 the enemy king has committed himself to the kingside, #2 the center must be firmly in control, or even static, and #3 my queenside pawns must be "flat" (i.e. no a3 or b3 played)

All that being said, Bareev disregarded my advice on points #1 and #2 and then later disregarded #3. No wonder he lost! I should offer him chess lessons.

  Sneaky: Just so nobody gets the wrong idea, of course my last comment above was tongue-in-cheek. I'm rated around 1800, there is nothing I could teach Bareev about chess.

  Sneaky: By the way, I cannot figure out the move 14. h3. What was the motivation behind that move? There is no piece that can come to g4. And since White already had played f3 he doesn't need that move to support pushing a pawn to g4.
Oct-04-10  VladimirOo: I guess otherwise Bareev could not move his KB as there is the threat Rxh2 RxR QxR grabbing all kingside pawns.

Otherwise i like your castling long rules. Rule number one should be #2 center should be firmly in control, otherwise when black succeed in releasing tension in center he is always faster to mount an attack on the king (greater piece mobility)!

I prefer to castle long whenever my opponent has committed his <attack> to the kingside. But we can't always play against Van Wely :)
