Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-19-03  Benjamin Lau: Wow, no wonder this line is so unpopular these days. Does anyone recall anything worse than a 9.6%?
Oct-21-05  azaris: The stupidity of the ECO classification system is embodied in this line. The theoretically complex and topical Sveshnikov/Pelikan Sicilian gets dunked in with all the crap Sicilians in B33, while every single KID variation that hasn't been played since the seventies gets it's own damn ECO code.
Oct-21-05  Averageguy: What;s so bad about this line?
Dec-05-05  KingG: What's the idea behind this line?
May-02-10  rapidcitychess: Do not play a5 before c6! Here is an example.
Korchnoi vs Nunn, 1981
11.Ndb5! gives white a enormous advantage.In case you are wondering 26.Kg2? was the losing move.
