Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-17-05  chess man: a nice game by Schiller
Mar-15-05  e4Newman: I can't follow Nakamura's plan here. He simply ends up losing material for no gain. Was there a mating exchange intended?
Mar-15-05  Dick Brain: <e4Newman> if you're referring to 23. Ng4, I think Nakamura's thinking was that moving the rook to f1 would soon lead to the loss of his isolated d-pawn: 23. Rf1 Nc3 24. Rd2 b5 and its too much pressure when the knight gets to b5.
Mar-15-05  delterp: Being a frequent player of the Caro-Kann (but by no means a master) 4)...Nf6 seems a bit out of character. The strength of the Caro-Kann is the rapid development of the queen's bishop. Thus, would not 4)...Bf5 be more appropriate? If I were white, after 5)...e6, I would do everything possible to ensure ...c5 never happens, entombing the queen's bishop.
Mar-15-05  e4Newman: Thanks, very insightful. I too have had trouble in IQP games. Perhaps 22.Nf2? was just no good. If 22.Rf1 (playing the move earlier) then ...Bb4...Nc3 would be less appealing, no?
