Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-04-04  ughaibu: What on Earth was Bologan trying to achieve here?
Premium Chessgames Member
  lostemperor: I think he was trying to prove he could beat a 14 year old kid.
Feb-04-04  ughaibu: h5 is a straight forward way of handling the kingside but I can imagine Bologan might find it annoying to have such a young opponent use this line against him.
Feb-04-04  bumpmobile: Is there anything horribly wrong with 10...Bxb3? After the recapture white is stuck with doubled pawns away from the center and it basically trades a developed piece for a developed piece. The opening explorer shows ten or so games in that position and no one takes the knight.
Feb-04-04  ughaibu: Bumpmobile: with the d-pawn being backward black would be reluctant to exchange the white squared bishop because it reduces his influence on the square d5. In the present position the b3 knight has no useful effect so I dont think it would represent an equal trade.
Feb-04-04  bumpmobile: ughaibu: thanks...Backward pawns, white squared bishops, infuence on d5...I have a lot to learn.
Jun-14-04  apple head: < Benjamin Lau > Sergei Karjakin was only 13 when this game took place :-)
Dec-09-04  iron maiden: 23. Nb4?? is a blunder worthy of Catfriend's queen trap collection.
Jun-04-05  vlatko: I think I saw Karja use this same Queen trap already. People seem to fall for it...
Sep-21-05  rjsolcruz: a cardiac finish by karjakin!
