Kibitzer's Corner
May-09-13  Everett: After doubling White's pawns, Black is able to find some freedom for his rooks on the K-side.

26...Bd4! A nice centralization that can be removed only for a price.

  Gilmoy: This must be the <Very Delayed e6> line in the Benoni, or I Have No Space Yet I Can Breathe.

When White couldn't punish <20..Rh5>, that was all the stinkin' space Black needed. Young-ish IM (20 yrs) being not quite cutthroat enough.

May-09-13  paavoh: Shades of Morozevich in Black's play, eh? Seems very awkward but is so resilient.
