Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-11-05  schnarre: Nice game & informative commentary by Black.
Nov-27-08  YoungEd: Agreed! Thanks to GM Keene for annotating so many of his games.
May-08-19  DiscoJew: thank you for the detailed analysis Raymond. Have you seen this new ...h5!? idea in this exf6 line that is all the rage right now? Go black!
Nov-28-22  schachkatze: Good commentary! I was interested in the Caro Kann, Tartakover line with 5. ...exf6 and this game was listed in notable games. This game illustrates the dream scenario when Black has a free attack on the queenside and White has absolutely nothing on the kingside due to Black's solid f-pawns.

In the mentioned game Tal vs Bronstein, 1974 Tal later played an exchange sac in a rook and bishop endgame to win. The game N Gaprindashvili vs Andersson, 1978 also has a nice finish with a piece sac for pawn promotion.

  kingscrusher: Thank you Raymond Keene for the detailed analysis - and maybe showing how the exf6 variation is underrated.
