Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-30-04  JoshuaJ8588: The King's Indian Attack. The most powerful unknown weapon for white these days. I'll popularize myself.
Oct-11-04  OverDjinn: Joshua, as a dedicated KIA player, I must say it is of no surprise that this line seems like a good weapon: it's aggressive, easy to learn, has a basis in many other lines (like marijuana, it is the gateway drug for many other lines) and solid. I have based a very solid hypermodern opening system around the KIA, including some lines of the Reti, Benoi, English, Benko Gambit, Pirc/Modern, and Barcza. I am competitive unto GM levels with this system and virtually guaranteed a draw at least, with many winning chances to be created in all lines to boot.
Oct-11-04  Everett: Oh my goodness! THIS IS AN AMAZING GAME!
Dec-06-04  ruylopez900: Nice endgame play, I think Crafty was doomed due to two factors. It had the worst pawn structure and Fritz had an attack going. Two questions, is the line that Crafty played playe dthat often by club players? I've never seen it. Also, <> What does your Crafty say about its queen for two rooks trade (the major imbalance of the game) on move 32? Thanks.
Dec-08-04  OverDjinn: uhm, Ruy, by worse pawn structure do you perhaps mean utter lack of pawns? ;)
Dec-08-04  ruylopez900: <OverDjinn> I wasn't referring to structure near the end of the game but rather ~move 38 where Crafty's pawns are messed, one's locked, two are isolated, the king has no pawn cover w/ all of whites pieces on the k-side...something I try to avoid : )
Dec-08-04  drukenknight: what was 49..Nxc5 about anyhow?
Dec-08-04  InspiredByMorphy: Is marching the a pawn a common theme as black in the KIA ? Development seems to be a better idea to me.
Dec-08-04  Trumpsky: Whats KIA? Killed In Action?
Dec-08-04  drukenknight: Krafty is Awesome?
Dec-08-04  PizzatheHut: <Whats KIA?> It stands for King's Indian Attack, and the King's Indian Defense is KID.
Dec-08-04  quXa: King's Indian Attack =P
Jul-20-05  TonyClifton: For an openning project - crafty did a really great game. Try to remember crafty is an open source code chess project.
Jul-20-05  Brown: This is clearly not played in typical KIA fashion. c,d and e pawns all on the fourth rank by move 15? This game shows more the flexibility of the system than it's "ideas" or basic "themes". For instance, there's no e5 pawn for white restricting black's position...
Jan-19-06  prinsallan: Absolutely brilliant game, hard to believe this was played between two computers. Chess is an art and seeing this, a computer can truly make art.
Jan-19-06  thomaspaine: A really nice example of a game where the King really is a good attacking piece. Computers know no fear, so their kings can take leisurely strolls, eating pieces on the way!
Jan-20-06  Aseem: Im kind of having doubts whether a computer can make moves like 14.e4 and then 15.d4. I always thought they were tacticians
Aug-11-06  charms: Bxf6 is a stunning sacrifice.
Jul-19-08  grebenarov: This is a beautifully "calculated" game!
Jul-27-09  WhiteRook48: pawns! Pawns! Pawns!
