Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-18-10  redwhitechess: white's king is so agile, traveling from castled position back to center and coming up to enemy's line.
Aug-07-10  Ulhumbrus: The moves 6 a3?! and 7 Rb1 lose time for development. With 7...d5! Black may have taken over White's opening initiative.

An alternative to 13...c4 is 13...d4.

If after 15...Qxd1 Black finds it difficult to advance the Queen side pawn majority further by ...a5 and ...b4, this suggests 15...Qc7 avoiding exchanging Queens, instead of 15...Qxd1. In the game Marshall vs Capablanca, 1909 in reply to 24 Qc6 Capablanca avoided exchanging Queens by the reply 24...Qe5.

  al wazir: 46. Ng8 would have simplified faster: 46...Kxg8 47. Rxe7 Ra4 48. Re3, etc.
