Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-22-06  Whitehat1963: Clearly, it doesn't look good for white, but did he have to reason already? What's best play?
Oct-19-13  optimal play: Perhaps white's problem was that he didn't <reason> soon enough? :)

I reckon his trouble began at 12.e4? By playing 12.h3 instead, he would have prevented 12...Bg4 which was really where his difficulties began.

Even so, I agree that white's resignation does seem a bit premature.

Maybe we don't have the full game score?
