Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-01-05  Karpova: Why did black play 9...kh7 ? he may have wanted to guard against ng6 but 10.d5 is even stronger, especially with the bd3. black should have avoided the fianchetto and better developed his pieces.
May-05-06  GarryBonaparte: One defect of putting the QB out
early, and then locking it from
coming back with e3 is something
like 6...Bb4+! and ...Ne4, which
is better than the more passive
6...Be7. Now I'm not just flinging
out a single move, and drawing any
kind of conclusion just based on
that, since as Capablanca said:
' The games of masters are decided
not by single moves, but by concerted
plans of action!'

Well said. Be that as it may, White's
idea of Bf4 and e3 reminds one of
a similar plan that might be played
out of the Q.I.D. - e.g. - Bg5
and then e3, before even developing
the QN. Again, ...Bb4+! is pertinent
there, and one rarely sees this
sequence in the Q.I.D.

But we've got an f5 pawn sticking out here, so everything is a bit different. Sometimes ...f5 is played much
LATER in a Q.I.D.

'Timing is everything in Chess. You've
got to know when to punch, and when
to duck!' - Bobby
