Kibitzer's Corner
May-15-10  jerseybob: What a stark difference in these 2 players, with Boleslavsky totally outclassing Kholmov. White plays totally without plan, while every black move has a purpose. The move 7.h3 seems to be about presrving the bishop, yet there goes white just a few moves later swapping off the bishop. And what is 12.Qe3 all about? With 12..Qb6!, black practically forces the unfavorable Queen exchange, giving black an open a-file. Then with queens off, white launches an "attack" down the h-file. Better to just castle short and try to fight for equality.
Mar-02-18  Saniyat24: I don't have a problem with Kholmov's long castling, but 22.b4 was not a good move...Kholmov played a little too passively in this game...
