Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-06-04  ConLaMismaMano: I think Lautier has a plus score against Kasparov in classical games, he leads 2 to 1 and draws.
May-04-07  Dres1: Not this one though
Nov-07-08  KingG: This opening transposes into a King's Indian structure, but the missing pair of knights and the weakening of Black's Queen-side would seem to favour White. White has an open c-file, with a weak square on c6 to use, and the b-pawn gives an easy target for his Q-side play. Black on the other hand doesn't have his usual knight on f6 to help push through g5-g4, and to aid his K-side attack. So basically, this just looks like a very good King's Indian for White. Black may in fact just be lost out of the opening.

When you also consider that you are facing a King's Indian expert like Kasparov, playing this type of game looks like suicide.

May-31-09  jokerman: The point of Rc6! is verry nice,

If the bishop takes, pawn takes. Then Kasparov has the idea of taking the black a pawn and push the b pawn to get connected passed pawns! It's a nice motif, and not an obvious one... Atleast not to me ^^
