Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-08-06  aazqua: Interesting game. Is the queen trade (not so much a sac as he gets 2 pieces + 2 pawns) sound? White's play afterwards is not very inspiring.
Feb-28-07  Mendrys: The great innovater David Bronstein may have originated the idea: Spassky vs Bronstein, 1956,

He went on to lose the game but I don't think the game reflects on it's soundness. It's very complicated. On the Spassky vs Bronstein page <Helloween: .....Yasser Seirawan even talks about him drawing easily with the Black pieces against Kasparov in one of his books. According to my database, White wins 40% of the games, Black wins 30% and 30% are drawn.>

I'm not sure of the number of games he's talking about but the numbers seem reasonable.

  Bishoprick: Andrew Martin discusses the variation in his Winning with the King's Indian. He found it worth a shot. But this was a long time ago. I tried it once against a 1900 player, and to my surprise, I won. But I wouldn't try it now-a-days.
