Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-23-06  Marmot PFL: 5.e4 is the only way to fight for advantage, but Karpov was content to draw.
Aug-23-06  clausantos: Kasparov isn't retired? What's going on?
Aug-23-06  Xaurus: < Kasparov isn't retired? What's going on?>This, I believe, was a one-time blitz-tournament for Mr. Kasparov.
Aug-23-06  positionalgenius: A pretty tame draw.Karpov's happy to collect half a point.
Sep-20-06  ToTheDeath: These two have played so many times at this point they're like an old married couple. "Draw honey?" "OK."


Sep-30-06  yudhimaster: kasparov is back, clausantos, like superman. i think its best 10... Nxd5
Oct-04-06  Open Defence: The position after 8..Be7 looks more QGA than QGD....
Oct-04-06  fictionist: clausantos,from where i'm having my self-exile,i believe Kasparov is busy with politics in Russia where he is a chairman of a political party that is in opposition against Putin(that I have received from an informant).I have also read in a local newspaper that he is staging a comeback this year but i don't know if he really pushed through with it.or maybe he did and it is in this tournament.the place Zurich rang a bell from that article i mentioned above.
Jan-01-09  furrer: Marmot PFL: Actually e3 is a fine move, transposing into the QGA, which often gives white a very little edge, that kind og edge karpov likes. But yes, actually e4 is more correct, and also the result of why this move-order not is played very often.
