Just returning to the game after 15 years.
"Even at 12 Kasparov succeeded in avoiding the problems of his repertoire by thorough analysis of characteristic middlegames. Only a few individuals are capable of this, and as a rule they are the very ones who will attain a high level of success." [V Zak] "Are there many players who at the age of 9 or 10 make use of the full amount of thinking time they are given?

Karpyan: I like f4. Think it's pretty strong. How does black meet the threat of fxe5?

Karpyan: They look like young Gata Kamsky clones

Karpyan: It's also known as the Lion Variation - another link: =1008272
   Aug-07-07 Vachier-Lagrave vs J Cueto Chajtur, 2006
Karpyan: I think 10.Be7 is a bit suspect. White is giving up two active minor pieces for a passive rook on a8 and the c7 pawn.
   Aug-03-07 Petrosian vs Karpov, 1973 (replies)
Karpyan: I doubt very much that Bxf7 was foreseen on move 12. The moves aren't forced. Petrosian would have foreseen that f4-f5 and e5-e6 led to a promising position, and black obviously took the decision to sac the exchange for the annoying pawn on f7 after Ne6+ loomed. As for the endgame, ...

Karpyan: Now prevented with h3
   Aug-01-07 Van Wely vs Carlsen, 2007 (replies)
Karpyan: If the passed pawn is a criminal to be kept under lock and key then this is one hell of a crime wave

Karpyan: Ne5 prevents Rg6+
   Jul-06-07 Karpov vs Taimanov, 1977 (replies)
Karpyan: Got it easily, because I've solved it about three times before.

Karpyan: I keep hearing that Svidler is a big cricket fan, although St Petersburg is not noted for its off-spinners.
