Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-28-07  luzhin: 10.h4 is a very dynamic new move.Obviously the Knight on g5 can't be taken--but nor does it threaten anything.My impression is that Adams went on to achieve a satisfactory position.

  Ron: Perhaps this is left over preperation that Grishuk had from the candidates and world championship tournament. Also, I'm glad to see Grishuk playing d4 more oftern.
Oct-28-07  MarvinTsai: No check at all...
Oct-29-07  luzhin: No checks, but the attack crashes through after 45...Rf8 46.h6 fxg6 47.Rxg6

  MarkThornton: I'm no expert on this line, but <17...Nc7> looks solid for Black. If White has an advantageous continuation, then I don't see it.

  MarkThornton: I am confused by moves 12 to 14.

Black chose <12...Bd6> instead of 12...Nb4. White then played <13. Bd2>, which looks like an attempt to prevent 13...Nb4. Black played <13...Nb4> anyway, and White then chose <14. Qb1> instead of 14. Bxb4.

Can anyone explain this sequence to me?

Apr-26-08  euripides: <Mark> I guess 13.Bd2 is mainly a developing move. In some QID lines the bishop can go to c3 and support a fast king's side attack with queenside castling. After <17...Nc7>, 18.Bc3 may be possible immediately as 18...Be5 seems to lose material to 19.d6 and otherwise White is threatening Bxf6; or 18...g6 19.0-0-0 looks reasonably promising for White as if Black tries to hang onto the piece after 19...hxg5 White has 20.hxg5 Nh5 21.g4 Ng7 22.Bf6 Qf8 23.e4 and Qh3 to follow.
Apr-26-08  euripides: ...come to think of it <17...Nc7> 18.Bc3? runs into 18...hxg5 19.hxg5 Ne4 when 20.f3 Bxg3+ looks awful for White.
May-23-13  stanleys: I have submitted the following game many times, but for some reason the CG staff doesn't want it in the database. Here it is with Grishuk calling his 24.Rf1 as "The strongest move I have ever made"!
