Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-28-09  badbeat994: Black should have played Nh5 to drive the bishop away that attacks d6. After the stron 11.Rd1 this was no longer an opportunity because of 11...Nh5 12.Bxd6!.
Aug-28-09  birthtimes: 9...Nc6 is the main line, and 11...Nbd7 would have prevented 12. e5 which secured White the initiative. Questionable variation as Black has a backwards d-pawn on a half-open file and White controls the center and overprotects d5...nice innovative move by Beliavsky, 11. Rd1.
Aug-28-09  percyblakeney: Caruana's quickest loss since he was more than 400 points lower rated than now, he just messed up the opening and could have resigned even earlier.
Aug-28-09  kingsindian2006: wow i dont know who is playing worse naka or fabiano.. this is a good old fashion spanking for a little boy.
Aug-28-09  luzhin: After 22...Rxc6 23.Nd4 wins an entire rook.
Aug-28-09  tibone: <birthtimes: 11...Nbd7 would have prevented 12. e5 which secured White the initiative.> 11...Nbd7 drops the d6 pawn. After Rd1! it was already too late to get this normal hedghog setup. btw to call a line questionable only because black has a backward d-pawn on a half-opened file is quite daring since the open sicilian is the most played opening.

Aug-29-09  twotosix: doesn't 20 Bd3 trap the black queen and win faster ? what am i missing ?
Aug-29-09  DarthStapler: Black can play Qxe5 after Bd3
Aug-29-09  twotosix: darthstapler: ahh yes, thanks. and that is the point of the next few moves... i get it now.
Aug-29-09  Winter: Beliavsky just made a statement, "Who's your daddy?"
Aug-29-09  kurtrichards: After a string of draws (6 in a row, I think) Caruana lost this one against Beliavsky. Caruana screwed up in the opening and the rest is history.

  kingscrusher: I have video annotated this game on Youtube:

Sep-10-09  achieve: Surprisingly <Timman> also played 9 Be7? in a 2000 Bundesliga game and went on to win that game even... Clearly Beliavsky improved with the classical approach of Bf4 -- Rd1! and e5! - in that order...

Perfect execution by Big Al - and the <kingscrusher YT video> is highly recommended.

Sep-10-09  euripides: Is 10...Nh5 OK, as <badbeat> suggests ? there are two games in the database: one quick draw

A Chernin vs Razuvaev, 1986

and a quick win by Polugaevsky as White which seems to arise from later errors by Black.
