Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-11-06  cade: Radja had no ambition to win Linares this year.
Mar-11-06  Ulhumbrus: Radjabov had good reason to accept a draw, if we assume that White's queen side attack is more threatening than Black's king side attack and that white has the advantage because of this.
Mar-11-06  euripides: Very fine annotations.

Imagine the 18-year old Kasparov or Fischer with this position.

Mar-11-06  ughaibu: I would think that black has more of a Petrosian position.
Mar-12-06  Ybrevo: It is difficult to understand Radjabovs accept of an early draw. When you choose the KI as Black, you normally go for the full point. Both players has a lousy Bishop, but the position is dynamic - so why not play on to see how the other games develops? A sad finish after at good tournament by the young guy.
Mar-13-06  BrotherJed: I agree. The annotation of this game is superb. Quite accurate!
Mar-13-06  Phi: Couldn't he have tried to close the kingside with h4 and regroup his pieces to the queenside with possible threats against white's king? I guess he would be to slow.
