Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-22-05  The17thPawn: Looks like Volkov tried his hand with Svidler's e5. Trouble is Bareev was his opponent and not Tomashevsky. Maybe they should bring in the other S. Volkov and let the two of them play the same side in consultation? They certainly couldn't do much worse as Volkov has been getting his head handed to him on a platter thus far this tournament. Acheiving a trapped piece by move 14? Hell I could do that.
Dec-23-05  Frankly: Well, apparently 10Nd5 is a novelty. This sets up the invitation for Bh3, which leads to the very neat Qa4 and the game. What was interesting was the decision (it appeared sound given the decisiveness of the follow-up) not to go for the wholesale liquidation on move 15, commencing with axb4 and ending with White playing 2 bishops against rook and pawn. Instructive play against the English 4 knights anyway.
