Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-31-09  nescio: Good engame play by both.

Position after 30.a4

30...f5! Getting rid of the doubled pawn and prepariing an outpost for the rook at e4. Further plans for Black: activating the rook through the open file and attacking the weak pawns on the queenside (or vice versa).

31.c5! Bogoljubov recognizes thet defensive play by 31.Rd1 Re4 32.Rd4 Re1 would be useless as the rook at e1 would be devastating and tries to activate his own rook.

Oct-19-09  AESTRADAR: 30....f5! in order to get rid of the double pawn ad beside to obtain a strong point at a4.
Oct-22-09  AESTRADAR: 30.... f5! in order to get rid of the double pawn and besides to obtain a strong point in e4.
Jul-08-22  jerseybob: According to this database, Johner's first win over Bogo after 4 losses. Finally beating a player who owns you is sweet. 12.f4 seems dubious, opening holes in an already-loose pawn structure and Johner takes full advantage. 12.f3 looks sounder.
