Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-31-04  refutor: anyone have an opinion on the position after 15. ...f5? not quite what i'd expect from a queen's indian
Dec-31-04  aw1988: White could have snatched a pawn by 16. Bd3, after which 16...f4 seems to be the best reply, where white can keep up the pressure via 17. Bc1 with a wild position which needs to be played, not evaluated.
Oct-13-05  HardBoys: Certainly a very fascinating game.
When a player like Kramnik plays a
move such as 13...g5!!, (clearly an
opening novelty cooked up at home)
what do you do? Resign on the spot?
Young Jab is certainly a tough
fighter to be able to live thru all
this! So with such strong games, one
does hesitate to just throw out
flippant comments. So about 20 Bxf5 (!) - I don't know. 45...Nc8 - why does he just give the
b6 pawn instead?. I do not know.
These boys are all quite tough.
