Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-16-05  Runemaster: Painful!

White seemed to lose the thread of the game as soon as Black castled long.

19...Qe3 is a useful sort of move to remember for practical purposes - you have a piece in danger (here, the bishop on c1), you attack one of your opponent's pieces and if he captures, you recapture with the endangered piece (a possible ...Bxe3).

  Jonathan Sarfati: Good grief, a GM has a lost game with White by move 12. If he hadn't played 13.Kh1, then 13...Rxd2 would have finished him even sooner.

  GrahamClayton: Black has an incredibly active position after 10...0-0-0. 5.♘e2 seems to be the problem - maybe 5.♘f3 stopping 7...♕g5 is a better option?

  Domdaniel: Yes, the Knight is better on f3 than on e2. One reason I think that Nimzowitsch's original opening (1.Nf3 d5 2.b3) is superior to Larsen's 1.b3.
