Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-06-03  ughaibu: Here's a quick win against the open Lopez with Qe2 and Rd1.
Jan-06-03  mj29479: black should have taken fxe6.
Jan-06-03  ughaibu: I suppose he wanted to discourage the knight.
Jan-06-03  pawntificator: yes, with the white knight on e5 things could become hopeless for black very quickly.
Jan-07-03  Cyphelium: 18.- fxe6 19. Qxe6 and black has to meet the threat of Ne5 and Ng5.

So 19.- Qc8 and then perhaps 20. Qc4 Qf5 21. Ng5 with the threat of 22. Ra5!

Black might play 21.- a5 to parry this, but it doesn't look convincing. 22. Ra3 with the idea 23. Rf3 seems awkward for black.

Sep-29-08  carpetshark: I'd like to draw your attention to a Boleslavsky-Karaklaic game (1957)where black placed his knight on c5 one move later making it possible for white to sacrifice his bishop: 11. BXd5. An interesting idea.
Sep-29-08  ughaibu: This is the game: Boleslavsky vs Karaklajic, 1957
Sep-29-08  vwtaylorii: white could have played 6Re1
Sep-30-08  carpetshark: Yes, but that is a completely different variant. Black responds with Nc5 and after 7. Bxc6 dxc6 8.Nxe5 (8.Rxe5 Be7 9.Qe2 Ne6)Be7 9.c3 o-o 10.d4 Ne6 etc. According to Keres the opponents have equal chances.

  whiteshark: What a copycat. ROFL

Nov-26-13  Sebastian88: What after this interesting variation?
17...Qe6 18.Rxa6 Qxc4 19.Rxa8+ Nc8 20.Rxc8+ Ke7 21.Rc7+ Ke6 22.Nd4+ Is this line correct?
Dec-28-14  SpiritedReposte: The end position looks like a Karpov game. No immediate mate but black is stymied with zero chance.
