Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-12-03  poisonpawn: King's Indian may once again rejoice as players such as Radjabov and Smirin are making the black side of the bayonet look much more appealing to play! Is it just my wishful thinking or has black been scoring much better against the bayonet recently?

After 25...d5 I wonder if white has enough compensation for the pawn to give him an advantage. The point of 12...Kh8 is revealed since there will be no pins on the a2-g8 diagonal.

Feb-04-04  ughaibu: By move 25 I think black is well ahead. Radjabov seemed to find the more effective plans and clearly outplay Ponomariov.
Jul-04-04  mystique.mystique: Radjabov is the best!
Nov-17-06  adviser: Radjabov is playing at his best.
Dec-27-06  syracrophy: There's no way to avoid 39...♕f3 and ♕g2#
Jan-04-07  suenteus po 147: Very nice play by Radjabov in the King's Indian, but I'd like to see him play this defense against Kramnik and see how well he fares. And since Kramnik is using 1.d4 again we might have such an opportunity.
Feb-04-07  TiagoF: Can someone please explain the move 12...Kh8? thanks
Feb-05-07  percyblakeney: <Can someone please explain the move 12...Kh8? thanks>

I think the idea is to clear g8 for a rook or knight.

<I'd like to see him play this defense against Kramnik and see how well he fares>

Also in this fairly short but interesting draw Kh8 was to be played: Kramnik vs Radjabov, 2007

May-23-18  Saniyat24: this was a very interesting game...!
