Jan-24-06  TopaLove: Really really nice game!
I don´t know this opening very well, but is 8.d5 correct? It´s clear that after 11 ... d4 Black has a good game.
Jan-24-06  Fan of Leko: 8. d5 is fine, but i thought white usually played 9. Ng5 here, ex. 9...Nc6 10. Nxd5 g6 11.Qd2 Nxd5? 12. Bxd5 Rb8? 13. Nxh7! (1-0, Korchnoi-Karpov, 1974).
Jan-25-06  Ybrevo: Amazing how succesful the Queens Indian has been at Corus this far: 4 wins for Black and no losses! Maybe we will see the Nimzo again soon :-)
Jan-25-06  Stevens: according to chessbase "white was close to lost one move out of theory on move 10" so it seems they put the question mark on 10.b3
Jan-25-06  Joshka: <stevens> And 47 minutes thinking time for Kamsky to blunder on his 10.b3!!....for what it's worth, when I look back in my games, Icc keeps the time, i'm amazed how so many of my blunders are made during long thinks of 10 minutes plus!LOL:-)
Jan-26-06  WMD: <Gata Kamsky's trials in the event continued. His openings, which ten years ago were very good are now hopelessly outdated and inadequate for an event of this standard. Here after only ten moves Michael Adams black had an almost decisive advantage. Kamsky struggled on in a very depressing position but he couldn't recover.>

Feb-27-06  patzer2: According to, "10.b3?! was practically refuted by the very strong 10…Nc6! and Black is already better..."

Perhaps 10. cxb5 would have enabled Kamsky to equalize and avoid the problems he had here. I prefer it over Fritz 8's first choice of 10. Nxd5.
