Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-30-08  Civhai: That's an interesting opening. I heard Zajarnyi always played this if it was possible and that he always won even against grandmasters. Since he played that line always and he always won until now, they can even preparate this line before the game, but he still wins always.

Stupidly, he mostly loses with all other openings and that's why he's only got around 2300 ELO.

Don't know if that's true, but someone told me this.

Jan-30-08  Ziggurat: 8. Bd3 is a startling move.
Jan-30-08  Civhai: I know, that's the funny thing about this opening. It looks so stupid that you could think that he'd never win this, but in fact, Zajarnyi has a really good performance with this line, I think.
