Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-11-05  dragon40: Game 5 of the 1995 WC Match.

The King book says here that <The players agreed to a draw here. There is not much more to play for after 28. Qxd5, Bxb6; 29. axb6 Qxb6; 30. Qc4, when the most likely scenario would be that all the QSide pawns would be exchanged, leaving the position stone-cold dead>. Match score after this game was 2.5-2.5

Nov-29-05  morphyvsfischer: 19 e5 Nd7 and now:

20 Qh5 Nxb6 21 axb6 Bc5 22 Nce2 Bxb6 23 Rf3 Qa7 24 Rh3 Bxd4 25 Qxh7+ Kh8 26 Qh8+ Ke7 27 Qxg7 Rf8 defuses white's attack.

20 Qg4 Nxb6 21 axb6 Bc5 22 Nf3 Bxb6 23 f5 exf5 (stops f6) 24 Qxf5 Be3 (discourages Ng5) 25 Rae1 Bh6 26 Nd4 Qc7 and the defense is sufficent.

Nov-29-05  morphyvsfischer: 20 f5!? e5 21 Nxc6 bxc6 22 exd5 Nxb6 23 axb6 Qxb6 24 dxc6 Qxc6 25 Ne4 f6 with an unclear position.

In the game, 22 ...Rb8!? looks good as well.
