Kibitzer's Corner
May-04-13  Everett: Big fan of the flexibility of the Bogo. Christiansen turns it into a Dutch w/ q-side fianchetto. Fun
May-05-13  DoctorC: Is the score sheet correct?
After 43 Qa5. Black has a decent position.
43 ...Bd6 seems to give an advantage to white.
May-05-13  Prugno: If you refer to 44. Bxd6, then Black can at worst give check on d2 and win the Bishop. After that, although White still keeps three pawns, they are all isolated and look pretty weak, so Black should have good winning chances.
May-05-13  Nerwal: 44. ♗xd6 ♕d2+ 45. ♖g2 ♕xd6+ 46. ♔h1 is a draw by fortress. Black would win without the ♙h5 but its presence dooms him.

  SteinitzLives: Wow, Larry can still attack big time, and against top level competition at that! If he keeps this up he might win the tourney, but it's real early yet. Contrast his fearless attacking style in this game with his careful technique to win the imbalanced endgame. Instructive play by the seasoned, victorious battle veteran!
Oct-29-13  capafischer1: This guy gareev gave some lectures at my chess club in san diego. When he was 18 he was found using a chess engine during a tournament. You can read about it in old chessbase articles. Great game by larry.
