   Zahodjakin has kibitzed 9 times to chessgames  
   Jul-10-21 Alexander Petrov
Zahodjakin: According to "The Soviet School of Chess" by Kotov and Yudovich, it was in 1857 that Urusov proposed the "Urusov Gambit" that bears his name. It was a proposal, he might not have actually played it.
   Jul-05-21 Queen's Pawn Game (A45)
Zahodjakin: There's no reason to play a weak move like 2. d5? after 1. d4, Nf6. It's a waste of tempo. Your choices are to play 2. c4 and face the Indian Defenses or the Queen's Pawn Game, where you have several choices, according to your personal preferences. If you play 2. c4, you'll get ...
   Jun-25-21 Rubinstein vs Przepiorka, 1925 (replies)
Zahodjakin: 5 years later, still no research showing up, and there's a reason for that, Capablanca stands on his own. I doubt anyone influenced him early in his career. He may have been influenced by the Hypermoderns later though, but not enough for a total style upheaval.
   Jun-08-21 J Mieses vs Marshall, 1902
Zahodjakin: Right, Mieses is clearly losing and has to go for the Draw by Repetition. Apparently, Marshall missed the immediately decisive 31. Rxg7+.
   Feb-08-21 Susan Polgar vs Yudasin, 1991
Zahodjakin: That was a serious beating.
   Sep-26-20 Kiril Georgiev
Zahodjakin: The BCF got angry because, Kiril Georgiev and others gave authorities evidence against them. Not because of any wrong doing on their part. You should make that clear, otherwise it looks like he's the one guilty when he is clearly not.
   Jul-07-12 William Hartston (replies)
Zahodjakin: One of the things I like about Hartston is that when you read one of his books, you're not left with any questions, a good instructor always has that ability, and Hartston has it.
   May-27-12 Richter-Veresov Attack (D01) (replies)
Zahodjakin: I agree with Meppi. White has the first move advantage, so while it's probably bad (and known to be bad) for Black to block the c-pawn in the lines of the Queen's Gambit, and to a lesser extent in other Queen Pawn Openings; here White can easily make some such move as "Ne2" or ...

Zahodjakin: John Wayne shot Liberty Valance, not Henry Fonda.
