Welcome to the November 2001 update

NOV01/03 It's nice to see that still after all these years, the Greek Gift is still claiming victims, even in international competition.
NOV01/04 Black takes a very no-nonsense approach to his problems in the Torre. He brings the battle to his opponent on the queenside from such an early stage that White's own attack never really gets going.
Torre vs King's Indian:
NOV01/05 It's always nice to see an experienced master get a mauling from a lesser light. The finish is textbook stuff.
NOV01/06 Black allows White a little too much space in this debacle.
NOV01/01 One of the things that White must be most careful of in the Tromp is to keep good control of his dark squares. In this game, White ignores this advice and pays the ultimate price!
NOV01/02 One of White's main aims in the 2...e6 Tromp is to build a big pawn centre. Countless games have shown that ignoring White's greater central control can be fatal to Black's chances and this game is no exception.
NOV01/10 White tries a tricky move-order to entice Black into an early d5. Possibly disorientated, Black quickly goes wrong in one of the main lines.
NOV01/07 White makes another attempt to take on Black's most popular anti-London line. Unfortunately, it looks as though this is no real improvement on the previously tried and tested.
NOV01/08 White tries yet another way to make something of the London System. Unfortunately, he is up against one of the strongest GMs in the world. Look away now if you're squeamish.
NOV01/09 White throws everything but the kitchen sink at his more esteemed opponent in the following bloodbath. Sadly, in the end he simply runs out of pieces!
