Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-29-03  Open Defence: A nice forceful game by Yusupov, he must have been quite young in 1981
Feb-19-05  SAROS: Hello ,
I wonder why Yusuphov din't play
a6xb5 after white played 15.Qa4
instead of Bd7.
I see that Blach would gain a Rook.
Feb-19-05  sneaky pete: Hello <SAROS> If 16... axb5 17.Qxa8 Rxa8 18.Rxa8+ .. white's 2 rooks are ample compensation for the queen. Yusupov's move 16... Bd7 looks better.

  tpstar: Yusupov is a leading expert in the Open Defense, so it's very significant that after the rare 9. Re1 he chose 9 ... Nc5 & 10 ... Be7 over 9 ... Bc5 inducing 10. Be3. Notice he gets the QN out of the way (11 ... Nxe7) to advance the c Pawn lickety split. Strange seeing Black's lsb around for most of the game, as it often gets traded on e6.

knon-tpstar (FICS 9/9/05): 9. Re1 Bc5 10. Be3 0-0 11. Bxc5 Nxc5 12. Nc3 d4 13. Bxe6 Nxe6 14. Ne4 Qd5 15. Qd2 Rfd8 16. Neg5 h6 17. Nxe6 Qxe6 18. Rad1?! Qxa2 19. e6!? fe 20. Qf4 Rd7 21. b3 Qxc2 22. Qe4 Qxe4 23. Rxe4 Re8 and Black won (0-1).

Nov-14-17  SAROS: Thanks sneaky pete and tpstar
