Kibitzer's Corner
May-20-08  KingG: Piket defeats Ivanchuk in the line in which he almost beat Kasparov a couple of years earlier, Piket vs Kasparov, 1997.

In general it seems to me that Black is struggling in this line, so it would be interesting to see someone try it against Radjabov to see what he has against it. After all his worst loss in a while in the KID was in a related line, Shirov vs Radjabov, 2008.

  plang: The gambit 14 c5 was first played by Kozul in 1990. 16 Nb5 was the usual follow-up until Piket introduced 16 Nd3 against Kasparov at Linares 1997. Kasparov had played 16..h5; 16..Rf7 was new. Piket was critical of 20..Be8? recommending 20..Bxb5 21 axb..Nxb4 22 Qb3..a5 23 b6..Bf6 24 Na4..Bd8 25 Rc3..Ne7 26 Rfc1..Nc8 27 Bb5 with White maintaining the initiative. Piket was perplexed by 28..gxh? calling it a "highly illogical move" as it was too risky for White to win the pawn on g3 and playing h3 would have left back rank mate motifs to worry about. He recommended instead 28..Bxa4 29 Rxf7+..Kxf7 30 Qc7+..Ne7 31 Qxb7 with approximately equal chances. Ivanchuk resigned due to 38..Bxd6 39 Rxf7..Bc5 40 Rf6.
Jul-22-21  Saniyat24: A complex game which remained complex even without the Queens...the opening set-up looked like a Dutch opening...Ivanchuk dominated the king-side but his attack fizzles out, whereas he was harassed in the queen-side, especially on the c-file. Ivanchuk's bishop-pair didn't amount to much...Piket applied enough pressure to cramp Chucky...!
