Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-26-06  CowardlyKnight: 18... Nh5 was a big mistake, not only putting the knight out of play as it will be useless on the kingside but also allowing white a cozy out post for his knight on c4 where it attacks the d pawn and other key points.
Oct-26-20  fisayo123: 18...b4 was much better. Close up the queenside and don't allow this extremely unpleasant fixed pawn structure. Young Kasparov does a good job attacking on both wings and delivering the undermining blow on the king.
Jan-28-21  MrJafari: Another nice show of Kasparov and defending against him = defeat!
