Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-31-09  PhilFeeley: You have to be either really brave or really stupid to play the King's Indian against Bologan - author of the best-selling work on the subject. Since I don't think Landa is stupid, and you don't get to be a grandmaster without at least a little courage, hats off to him.

him being an author/expert on the opening doesnt mean you shouldnt play against him in the opening. after all he has lost 37 games, so he is no kasparov...

karpov with the caro-kann writing books has also always been human in the opening losing quite aloth of games, being crushed in some... despite his expertise.

it simply means they know the lines very well nothing more nothing less.

Jan-07-10  BISHOP TAL: Somtimes GMs use there opponants opening books agaisnt them.
