  wordfunph: before the game..

<Asked what his strategy was, Naroditsky joked that he would be "groveling," a term chess players use to mean they are hoping for a draw.>

Apr-21-11  Pyke: After the game Kamsky said that after the Queen exchange on move 15 he was sure that Naroditsky was playing for a draw.

He criticised this decission by his opponent, for in his opinion Black now has chances.

According to Kamsky the final mistake was the preparatory move 28. Rf1. Allowing Black to play the break 28. ... b4. f5 immediately was much better. A problem for White is, that in a lot of variations the Rook on g3 is hanging.

Apr-26-11  ajile: Why would White exchange queens with Black still undeveloped and king in center? Weak.
Apr-30-11  rwbean: How about 31. cxb4 Rc2+ 32. Kd3 Rxb2 33. Ke4 Rxb4 34. Rd3? How can Black win that?
Jul-15-11  LIFE Master AJ: Credit White for playing without a plan, playing very passively, and throwing himself (headfirst) ...

sometimes the light at the end of the tunnel is the answer to your problems, your way out of the darkness. And others? Its just that single, harsh light ... of the speeding, oncoming train!

Jul-15-11  LIFE Master AJ: We went over this game last night at chess club, Class 'C' players have posed more problems for me than "Narod" did for Kamsky.
Jul-15-11  LIFE Master AJ: Perhaps White should write a book: "How NOT to play the endgame!" (Or something like that.)
Jul-15-11  Jack Bauer: Look who's talking.
