Kavalek Annotates His Masterpiece
Kavalanche! Black to play.
In his article on The World Chess Hall of Fame at the Huffington Post, Lubomir Kavalek analyzes his own "hall of fame" game against Eduard Gufeld, featuring its famous pawn avalanche (or "Kavalanche" as some have called it). I looked briefly at the game when examining a similar Pawn Steamroller by a local player, and it has been very widely annotated. But, according to Kavalek, this is the first time he himself has ever annotated his "Mona Lisa." Even if you have played it over before, it is worth another look with notes by the master himself.
