Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-28-05  GufeldStudent: fxe6!! Totally brilliant: This may be one of Johner's best games.
Nov-11-09  psmith: At first sight 12. Ne1 is an oversight. Why not 12. Bxh6? After 12. Bxh6 Bxf3 13. Bxf3 Ne5 14. Be2 Qh3 Black would hope to get counterplay on the h-file, though looking at it with Fritz 5.32 I don't think it is sufficient in the end.
Nov-11-09  psmith: <GufeldStudent> I suspect you meant 20. dxe6!! This requires further thought... Fritz 5.32 thinks 20. Nb5 is stronger. The point is that after 20... Qb8 21. Nxd6! the knight is taboo: 21...Qxd6 22. fxe5 Nxe5 23. Bxc5 and White will emerge from the complications with a plus, for example 23... Nbxc4 24. bxc4 Nxc4 25. Qe2 Qxd2 26. Bxf8 Re8 27. Nf2 Nd2 28. Qxd2 Qxd2 29. Rxe8 Bxf8 30. Rxf8 (or perhaps more simply 28. Rd1 Bc3 29. Rxd2 Bxd2 30. Qf3 with a piece extra). (with help from Fritz 5.32)

On the other hand, Johner's judgment with 20. dxe6 seems to be borne out by the game continuation. But see next comment...

Nov-11-09  psmith: 26. Qd2 may be an inaccuracy; probably 26. Qd3 is better, keeping an eye on g6.

The problem with 26. Qd2 is that it permits Black to give back the exchange with 27...Rxe6 28. Ng5+ hxg5 29. Rxe6 gxf4. With the Queen on d3, there is not time for 29... gxf4 in the parallel line, and White keeps his advantage.

Again analysis is assisted by fritz 5.32.

Nov-11-09  psmith: I am following IMlday's suggestion at Reti vs Rubinstein, 1923

  GrahamClayton: A costly lost for Reti. A draw or win would have given him 1st outright, instead of =1st with Spielmann.
