Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-30-07  Chess Addict: If N takes, then 44...Rxf4+ wins.
Oct-31-07  benjinathan: Why anyone but a super plays d4 against Radjabov I don't know.
Oct-31-07  Tomlinsky: Atalik knows the white side of a KID very well and probably took this opportunity to find out how his knowledge stacks up against a major advocate of the system. He certainly got a free theory lesson in his chosen line. Good game.
Oct-31-07  KingG: It's always a pleasure to see how Radjabov plays the King's Indian, and here he provides yet another instructive game.
Nov-11-07  notyetagm: <Chess Addict: If N takes, then 44...Rxf4+ wins.>

Yes, another great example that <SHIELDING YOUR KING IS A FULL-TIME JOB>.

The White f3-knight is <BLOCKING> the f-file to the White f1-king, meeting the threat posed by the <SWINGING ROOK> Black e4-rook of ... ♖e4xf4 by <BLOCKING THE CORRIDOR> the f-file. But if the White f3-knight <BLOCKS THE CORRIDOR (FILE)>, then it cannot also <DEFEND> the h4-square/h4-pawn, hence 43 ... ♖h7xh4!.

Jul-14-08  Turkito: Bad game for Atalik as always.As a turkish origin ofcourse i support him but i cant accept his style that finds advanture plays, meaningless sacrifises or passing pawns without prevision! Since 1990 it is the same.Nearly no avance during 20 years!What the hell rook doing there in c6?Rook g5?better resign.No positional play.Poor defense and combinations.20 years for nothing!
