Jun-25-10  kingsindian2006: gelfy plays right into teimour's strength.
Jun-25-10  OneArmedScissor: it's gonna get to the point where no one will play <1. d4> against Rodjabov
Jun-25-10  chessgames2010: <it's gonna get to the point where no one will play <1. d4> against Rodjabov>

Van Wely would obviously differ with that notion

Jun-25-10  ounos: This is cute: 28. Nxb5 Rxc5!
Jun-25-10  cjgone: Knight seems trapped.
Jun-25-10  Blunderdome: Thanks for the link, percyblakeney. Any idea what this bit means?

<insisting, now with convenient parking elephant is not brushing. >

Jun-26-10  Bdellovibrio: "convenient parking elephant" would mean a nicely placed bishop
Jun-26-10  arnaud1959: <OneArmedScissor: it's gonna get to the point where no one will play <1. d4> against Rodjabov> It could be Carlsen's next challenge :)

  luzhin: Black's concentrated fire-power on the d4 square (throughout the game) is classic King's Indian strategy.
Jun-26-10  Jafar219: <Van Wely would obviously differ with that notion>

They are equal with d4 opening.Actually Van Wely has never been serious opponent for Radjabov.

Jun-26-10  manakin: <it's gonna get to the point where no one will play <1. d4> against Rodjabov> Nice thing about the KID is that you can transpose into it, rather easily, also after 1.e4, by 1...d6 followed by 2...g6. True, your opponent may choose to decline taking over the center... but should'nt that allow black himself to do so?

Though it must be said I don't remember too many Radjabov games where he actually implements this method, so I may (probably) be wrong.

Jun-26-10  Don Cossacks: <OneArmedScissor><chessgames2010>Kramnik had recently beaten Radja's KID in Baku.
Jun-26-10  percyblakeney: <Kramnik had recently beaten Radja's KID in Baku>

That was rapid chess though, with classical time controls their KIDs have been drawn.

Jun-26-10  champsylove: KingsIndian2006, I appreciate your home page quote. It is very true. Many new therapies for depression involve problem solving scenarios.
Jun-26-10  goodevans: It took me a while to work this one out, so here for the benefit of anyone else whose wondered why white can't play <31 Nxd4>, the answer is <31 ... Rc3>.

<31 Nxd4 Rd8? 32 Ne6!> would allow white back into the game, but there's no way back after <31 Nxd4 Rc3>.

Jun-27-10  hellopolgar: apparently Radyjabov hasn't lost to Gelfand since 2007.

Jun-27-10  percyblakeney: <hellopolgar> The 2006-07 games were blindfold/blitz/rapid though.
Jul-06-10  Delfinik: For Manakin:
1e4-d6 2d4-g6 3Cc3 was Pirc/Modern defence and not KID (d4 point is not so weak; white pieces are more free; 0-0-0 is more safe for white, and so on....)

Thanks <goodevans> frankly it stumped me.

  GrahamClayton: Radjabov improves on the 12..c6 played in Huzman vs McShane, 2005

Huzman is Gelfand's trainer, which may explain why Radjabov deviated with 12...d3.

Feb-05-11  KingG: Interestingly, Gelfand has lost to Radjabov in three of the major KID systems: 7...Nc6(Gelfand vs Radjabov, 2008), 7...Na6(Gelfand vs Radjabov, 2010), and 7...Nbd7(Gelfand vs Radjabov, 2008). Maybe next time Radjabov can try and beat him in the ...Bg4 line.
