Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-24-05  mulondabl: at last for morozevich
Jan-24-05  Dionyseus: And he's lucky she didn't play 43...Bc7, she could have drawn this game.
Jan-24-05  csmath: Not a good game, basically poor play by Polgar. Moro isn't playing well either. But a win is a win and he needed it badly.
Jan-24-05  siu02jm: I just dont get the opening used here. Why is moro giving up the center like that.
Jan-24-05  me to play: This is one of the "hypermodern" systems that eye the center from a distance rather than occupy it. It is not to every taste, but it does appeal to those who like a positional struggle.
Jan-24-05  csmath: Developing pieces first. This is not uncommon for attackers, like Moro, or Polgar. The trouble for Polgar started when she played 11. ... Qd7 instead of blocking diagonal or securing pawns on a7 and b7. Once she played Qd7 she was expecting to bring a rook on d8 but because of hanging pawns on a7 and e5 after Qe3 she has changed her mind and went for 12. ... d4 which was not much better since Moro got a pawn anyway. It took him long time to manage to drill the full point out of that.
Jan-25-05  JohnBoy: <siu02jm> - This is a reverse Gruenfeld. Try looking at it that way, where white has an extra tempo.
