Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-04-12  Garech: Great game - three queens! Rare to see Gashimov getting smashed playing the Benoni - kudos to Laznicka; instructive use of the c6 outpost.
Jan-05-12  ajile: This line with 7.Bf4 definately looks challenging for Black. I bet Gashimov does some serious study now on this line. After 11.Bh6! Black is very uncomfortable.
