   Oct-22-21 Robson vs Fedorowicz, 2010 (replies)
BwanaVa: Fed peak rating-FIDE 2574 (1999), USCF 2672 (approx 1993).
   Oct-13-21 Petrosian vs Estrin, 1968
BwanaVa: I would note Spassky's full comment after the 1966 World Championship match: "It is to Petrosian's advantage that his opponents never know when he is suddenly going to play like Mikhail Tal."
   Aug-30-21 Xiong vs Caruana, 2021
BwanaVa: Also...not a Kings Indian Attack. Some type of reversed Gruenfeld, perhaps...
   Aug-18-21 Suttles vs R Cosulich, 1974
BwanaVa: After 22...e4xd3 23. c5 Nmoves 24 Bxb7 the Qside pawn roller will be too much to stop.

BwanaVa: "A Mongolian". Just tossing in a Bobby Fischer call back...
   Jun-04-21 S Joksic vs K Commons, 1975 (replies)
BwanaVa: Cheapo by the Dozen-Amen. I remember back in the day-perhaps this tournament was part of it-when Commons went overseas to play at a time few Americans were doing it and tore through three tournaments or so to earn his IM.
   May-07-21 Keene vs R Eggmann, 1965 (replies)
BwanaVa: I would say the opening is a Reti, or a Neo -Grunfeld, or perhaps even an English.
   May-03-21 Kasparov vs V Chuchelov, 2003 (replies)
BwanaVa: "KingG: Games like this make me wish Kasparov had played more 2600 players in his career rather than just the very top guys." Interestingly enough, a Fischer Boom friend of mine made the same comment about Petrosian...he feels that the very top players just deal with certain risks, ...
   Apr-05-21 Reshevsky vs B Zuckerman, 1966
BwanaVa: This is not a Kings Indian Attack. Its either an English Opening or a KID (depending on how you classify openings).
