Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-20-06  TheBB: So I guess having the big pawn centre isn't an automatic win after all. :)
Jun-20-06  euripides: 5 dxe6 has a negative score for White on this database. It used to be thought that White shouldn't accept the Blumenfeld gambit, in view of games like Tarrasch vs Alekhine, 1922. But this view has changed. Part of the trick for White, if he does accept the gambit, is to keep his minor pieces out of the range of the black pawns.
Jun-20-06  euripides: More rough treatment for the Blumenfeld: Karpov vs E Lobron, 1997
Jun-20-06  Ybrevo: Very strong endgame skill by Bologan. It is not easy to win with f- and h-pawn and different color bishops, but his active king did the trick.
Jun-20-06  Tariqov: one important factor for winning in these king of endings is to make sure Rook are not exchanged which will give more drawing chances.
Jun-24-06  Chess Classics: <Tariqov> Right, or for that matter exchanging the bishops can lead to drawing chances. But opposite colored bishops+rooks is not a drawish ending.
