Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-17-13  PromoteToKing: Great play from Andreikin, utilizing the strength of his Rooks & Bishop to totally hamper the White Queen's mobility, while creating a deadly attack on the K side.

Notice how White's Rook only moved one time during the entire game (2 if you count castling).

Aug-14-16  The Chess Express: Nice user namer <PTK> :) It surprises me that Dreev chose to forgo c4 in this game.

1. e4 e6
2. d4 b6
3. Nf3 Bb7
4. Bd3 d5
5. exd5 Qxd5
6. O-O Nf6
7. <c4> Qd8
8. Nc3

This seems a lot more natural to me. The d5 push is one of white's major ways to crack black's position.
