Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-19-08  Marmot PFL: Anand doesn't do much here, even with a rest day to prepare for an opponent who is known for playing the Schliemann. I think it is an underrated defence from my own problems in dealing with it. Many times white keeps an extra pawn right to the end but can never make any use of it.
Feb-20-08  Akavall: Anand playing 4. d3 against an opponent who is known for playing 3...f5, makes it seem as if Anand thought that 4. d3 was objectively stronger. Otherwise, why not play 4. Nc3? He had all the time in the world to prepare it.

  FSR: Radjabov is God of the Schliemann. He plays it against all the bigs (Topalov, Anand, Ivanchuk, Svidler, Shirov, etc.) and draws almost every time. Who would have thought that the Schliemann would become a drawing weapon?
