Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-08-10  tjipa: Hey, this game deserves a kibitz! I have a kind of nostalgia for Mecking and players of this kind (like Capablanca). Besides, I am almost proud my countryman was on the receiving end of this, one that I once lost in a simul to. After a struggle! :)
Mar-26-10  newzild: Mecking was only 15 at the time - a fine performance.

  wordfunph: fantastic fearless middlegame technique by Henrique! the c-pawn made the big difference. observe how Mecking made use of his advantage going into the endgame. see how Mecking occupied the critical d5 square.
Mar-23-11  ozmikey: Instructive game...showing how the Benoni structure without the fianchettoed bishop can be pretty lifeless for Black. A very well-played game by Mecking, even if none of his moves after about move 15 are all that hard to predict!
Oct-29-13  rwbean: According to the opening explorer, 6... c5 has only been played once, in this game. Other games continued 6... d6, 6... o-o, or 6... b6.

According to Stockfish ... Black had to try 15... ♘e5 or 16... ♘xe4.
