Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-21-04  Hidden Skillz: perhaps one of the best games of the tournament..u can follow the annotation on chess fm
Nov-21-04  RisingChamp: What a sizzling attack!! Radjabov is truly brilliant.You dont often see Bg5 and the poisoned pawn these days.
Nov-21-04  Hidden Skillz: thats tru champ..Bg5 is raley played..n if i listened correctly shredder prefers 6.Be2 or somewhere along the way
Dec-13-04  AdrianP: The onus is still on White to prove that he has anything better than a draw following 15... Qxa2 rather than 15... Ba7. See Vallejo-Pons vs Kasparov, 2004
Nov-03-06  Jafar219: <<Gnappo>: After his games against Anand (Radjabov vs Anand, 2006)and Karjakin, I believe Radjabov is the biggest expert on the Poisoned Pawn in Sicilian Najdorf. I suspect he's got an answer for every White's move after 10.e5. >
Nov-03-06  ughaibu: Personally, I dont think Radjabov's play is much concerned with the opening and I think this explains his adoption of unfashionable lines. It's one of the features of his play that I find most refreshing.
Mar-15-14  ralph46: 17 ..Qxa2 is a loss of time instead f5 is better
