Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-26-04  jsastre48: Beautiful game, kudos to Korotylev he demolished Grishuk's defense!
Nov-26-04  Minor Piece Activity: Chessbase says that Grischuk's position was very good until he blundered with ...h5
Nov-26-04  acirce: Yes, it was tragic to watch him ruin an excellent position in time trouble since I was hoping for a thrilling Grischuk-Kasparov game for the tournament victory tomorrow (Grischuk had only been 1/2 point behind had he won this).
Nov-27-04  sourcerer: koro was over the moon for his Qc1 that set the Qxc3 trap . but in it that was his only real move to avoid the awarkward Qxc3?
Nov-30-04  ajile: What should black play instead of 29..h5?
Nov-30-04  Knezh: 29. ..Ng5 looks enterprising.
Nov-30-04  samvega: 29..Ng5 30.fg+ Kxg7 31.Bf6+ doesn't look good . . .

Isn't the point of 29..h5 to prevent 30.Ng4 Re4/h5 31.fg+ and Nf6? How else can this be prevented? Or does black not care about giving up the exchange b/c of his existing material advantage?

Jul-29-05  PinkPanther: Blacks position really wasn't good even before h5, this game was annotated by Fedorowicz for
Jul-29-05  alexandrovm: Yes, I saw this game. In the young GM's section I root for Grischuk, and he was crushed in this great attacking game by Alexey. At the end Alexander finished second, only behind Kasparov (the greatest) who made an incredible +6 or +7!
Jul-29-05  PinkPanther: Kasparov was like +4, I believe, perhaps +5, but not 6 or 7.
Jul-30-05  alexandrovm: You are right <PinkPanther>. It was an incredible +5. Read more at
