Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-29-07  Shajmaty: How can a 2475 fall into such a trap? This game is just theory! 18...g6? loses right away!
May-01-07  AdrianP: <Hermansson> tried the Polugaevsky variation no less than 3 times... with a score of 0/3...!
May-01-07  Tomlinsky: Very well played by Negi. It looks as though Hermannson has used Sigeman to give the Najdorf Polugaevsky a trial run. I find it interesting in this game that a player rated ~2500 can take this line up for a tournament and apparently not be aware of 12...Qe5 followed by Bc5 or at least play the inferior 12...Ra7 variation for some unfathomable reason yet to be revealed. You can't study this line and not be aware of this part of theory surely? It's pretty fundamental to the variation.
Jun-12-07  Open Defence: Ding Yilun vs Z Pengxiang, 2005 went 12..Bc5 .. not many games with that line here.. but is it any good ?
