Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-06-09  goldenbear: If I understood it correctly, 29.h4!! begins a deep and almost miraculous five-move combination which wins a pawn. (34.Rd1 Rd5 or 34.Kf1 Nf4, and therefore I conclude g6 really was necessary).
Oct-06-09  goldenbear: I think Black's 29th move would make a heck of a Sunday puzzle Chessgames(that is, if I'm not missing some better defence for White).
Oct-06-09  Billy Ray Valentine: <goldenbear> thanks for posting. Are you a UC Berkeley grad?
Oct-06-09  goldenbear: No, I'm a golfer. When I played junior golf (I still play competitive golf), my friends called me Golden Bear because I looked like Jack Nicklaus and had a similar golfing style.
Oct-06-09  Billy Ray Valentine: Another game with Karpov using the isolated d-pawn effectively...

<goldenbear: No, I'm a golfer.>

cool. I sometimes end up in Upper Arlington, Ohio--where the Golden Bear went to high school...

Aug-30-15  fallen angel: why not 37...rd5?
Aug-30-15  cunctatorg: Wut? 37... Rd5 or 37. Rxd5? Well, 37. Rxd5 Nxd5 and I think that Black has the advantage because the White's King position is compromised ... but I ain't sure... Anyways Black could play g6-g5, Nd5-f4 and there is a serious threat upon the White's King...
