Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-21-05  Resignation Trap: A precursor to the Benko Gambit. Botvinnik wasn't impressed with the Swede's opening, however, and in his personal notebook in preparation for the 1951 match, the entry was brief: "The opponent made a gift of a pawn in the opening."
Sep-11-05  lentil: 27. ...Rxa4 28. Nb6 Nxb6 29. cb Ra8 30. b7 Rb8 31. a4 etc.
Sep-28-11  ozmikey: Black missed a good chance to equalise and then some with 22...Ne5! instead of 22...Nb5. White must exchange knights because of the ...Nd3 threat, after which he will have to go through real contortions to defend the b-pawn. A sample line: 23. Nxe5 Bxe5 24. b4 f5! 25. f3 fxe4 26. fxe4 Ne8! (not the immediate 26...cxb4 27. axb4 Rxb4?? 28. Rxb4 Rxb4 29. Rxc7 Rxa4 30. Rc8+ Kf7 31. Rf8 mate!) 27. Bd2 Nf6 28. Re1 Bd4+ 29. Kf1 (or 29. Kh1) Ng4, with masses of compensation for the pawn.
