  shalgo: 18.e4 is nice; the bishop that has been languishing at c1 is suddenly a force in the game.
May-20-11  qqdos: Yusupov usually plays the Colle/Zukertort with b3 but here he adopts the standard Colle with 11.c3 - admittedly a bit late. Meanwhile Black (Luch) had been delaying 10...c5; kept his QN at home until 17...Nxa6 and deployed his KN to d7 with loss of tempo. White lodged his KN on e5 and set up the well-known pawn triangle with 8.f4 (pawns on d4, e3 and f4). <shalgo> Yes 18.e4 liberating the latent Bc1 and threatening the BK (with the WR on g1 controlling the g-file) is particularly powerful. The move e3-e4 (often on move 8. or 9.) unmasking the QB was one of the central thematic planks of Colle's System, which Black often strives hard to circumvent!

  keypusher: <Jim Bartle: And they say there's no Luch in chess.> There wasn't a lot of chess in Luch here.

  keypusher: Here's the thing about chess. Luch, who I made fun of, could of course squash me like a bug. In fact, since he's around 2400, he could squash some other guy like a bug, and that other guy could then squash me like a bug. I'm miles below Luch. And yet somehow Yusupov makes Luch look like a beginner in this game. Yusupov is a great player.

But here is his record against Karpov:

Here is his record against Kasparov:

So just think about how good the K's are.

Jan-20-13  Everett: He ate him for Luch

Luch tried to play Yusupov's game, with the delayed Stonewall from the Colle. It is not a surprise Yusupov understood the positions a bit better. Not only the eventual e4, but 12.g4 takes advantage of Black's labored maneuvering on the Q-side.
