  tamar: Arkadi is not going to stick around for
29 Qg3 Rb1+ with a King hunt ending in mate.
Jan-30-06  Ybrevo: As far as I know the 6. Lc4 is a rather seldom line in the Classical CK. I don´t think it gives White much, since Black plays Pawn e6 anyway. And in this game Motylev proved that Black is more than okay.
Jan-30-06  refutor: <ybrevo> realistically it gives more chances for White than the position after 6.Nf3 Nd7 7.h4 h6 7.h5 Bh7 8.Bd3 Bxd3 8.Qxd3

it was tal's weapon v. botwinnik so that's got to say something for it

Jan-31-06  Ybrevo: <refutor> I agree that the traditional line for White, that you give, doesn´t leave Black many problems at all, but if you look at the position in this game after 13. - Nd7, I would say that Black has a rock solid position. The White bishop-pair are no big threat, and the Black King seems much safer than Whites after 0-0-0. Could you please recommend a game or two from Tal v Botwinnik?
Jan-31-06  Kangaroo: The link provides the answer for <<<Ybrevo>'s inquiry>: Could you please recommend a game or two from Tal v Botwinnik?>
Feb-05-07  Tomlinsky: Naisitsch is seeing ghosts playing 20.Nf6+. 20.Qxb4 with black having to prove his superiority is better than kamikaze hope and pray tactics.
