Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-13-05  patzer2: This game reflects some high-level positional and tactical Chess on the part of Georgiev. White ties up the center, queenside and kingside, and puts strong pressure on a weak pawn with 21. Rce1! before playing a winning deflection and pin combination tactic to force a Queenside passed pawn.

Georgiev's quiet and solid positional play almost lulls you to sleep before it hits you like a ton of bricks that he has a won game. He finishes off the game with the deep positional deflection and pin combination 23. fxg5! etc. (set up by 21. Rce1!), which enables him to force the winning passed pawn.

Feb-13-05  patzer2: White's 35. c5! is a stunning obstruction/deflection endgame tactical shot. No matter how Black responds, White forces a won endgame. Great stuff! Excellent game if you like great positional play and deep but subtle middle game to endgame tactics!
Feb-23-05  belgradegambit: Chris Ward wrote a book on the Dragon but Georgiev is a Dragon afficionado who has wiped out many GMs on the Black side of the dragon. I think Black should stick with the 9....d5 variation.
Jun-02-11  Helloween: 35.c5!! defends g4. The idea of c4-c5 in the ensuing endgame must have been seen with 24.h6+. Even if Black's Knight is forced from c5 by b4(axb3,axb3 and b4), it will have to sacrifice itself for the passed d-pawn. This leads to an endgame where White can force the win of both doubled g-pawns with his Bishop and use his own g-pawn to Queen.

Awesome stuff(the entire game is great, really).

Apr-26-15  SpiritedReposte: Great endgame shot in c5!
