Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-19-06  notyetagm: 22 ... ♖c8? is a typical tactical error resulting from thinking strategically only.

Black has a loose knight on b4 (White d2-bishop attacker, Black d7-queen defender). He wants to challenge White's control of the open c-file but by playing 22 ... ♖c8? to do so, he makes a second loose piece, the Black c8-rook (White c1-rook attacker, Black b7-bishop defender).

Black now has two loose pieces (b4-knight, c8-rook) and LPDO, <Loose Pieces Drop Off>. White wins a piece with the <DOUBLE ATTACK> 23 ♖x♖+ ♗x♖ 24 ♕c3!, forking the loose Black b4-knight and the undefended Black c8-bishop.

Aug-28-13  csmath: Looking at the opening Gligoric's plan with

14. e5

restraining black bishop and direct attack followup is truly very powerful. Black's defence is quite tricky.

17. ...Nb4?! [17. ...Rad8 is a simple obvious alternative move here but:

17. ...Rd8
18. h5! Nxd4
19. hxg6 hxg6
20. Bxg6
and now black has to play

20. ...Nf5
21. Bxf5 exf5
22. Qxf5 Qxe5
23. Qg4

and black position is still very precarious but playable.]

While the game is decided by blunder Gligoric's sense for this position is fantastic since he really played these attacks a lot and feels quite at home.

Aug-28-13  SimonWebbsTiger: Tukmakov played the line a bit later (v. Bagirov, Lvov 1984) with 15...Qd7 16. Qg4 Rac8 17. h4 Rxc1 18. Rxc1 Rc8 19. Rxc8 (19.Rf1!? Nc4 20. h5 unclear - Tukmakov) Qxc8. see Informator 25/683
Aug-28-13  parisattack: Gligoric suggests 20. Qh3 as even stronger.

  GrahamClayton: While 14. e5 gives Black an outpost on d5, his Knight is unable to use it. On the other hand. 14. e5 blocks the activity of the Black bishop on g7, and opens up the b1-h7 diagonal for the bishop on d3.
Jul-13-20  habagat64: Here GM Tukmakov employs the line used by GM Smejkal to beat GM Gligoric at the Leningrad Interzonal 1973.
