Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-28-04  Taidanii: Black's doubled F pawn was actually used as a strength instead of a weakness in this game.
Feb-29-04  Jonber: The type of pawn formation Black has around f6 after move 14 is often called a ‘diamond’. It doesn’t appear too often, since it requires two parallel captures by pawns, but if handled correctly it can be relatively strong. I wouldn’t recommend aiming for such a formation, though.

  beatgiant: It looks very hard to break Black's bind from move 26 on.

But how about 25. Rg1! aiming for the g4 break to get a passed h-pawn? For example, 25. Rg1 b5 26. g4 hxg4 27. fxg4 fxg4 28. Rxg4 e5+ 29. Kf5 Rxg4 30. Kxg4 e4 31. Kf4.

  beatgiant: After 25. Rg1, maybe Black's idea is 25...Kf6! so that 26. g4 fxg4 27. fxg4 e5+, and White's king can't advance to f5 . Then after 28. Kf3 exd4 winning a pawn.

  beatgiant: So now my suggested improvement for White is 14. g4! preparing to break up the kingside. For example, 14. g4 f5 15. gxf5 exf5 16. h5!? gxh5 17. Ng3 h4 18. Nxf5 Bf6 19. Nd6+ Kf8 20. Nxb7 Rb8 21. Na5 Rxb2 22. Nc6 with a much more active position than in the game.
