Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-18-06  shamekovich: 18 Nh3, while winning the f4-pawn,
does little to prevent the strong
looking response 18...c5!

  wwall: Better may be 35.e6+ f6 36.Rd7 Rxd7 37.exd7 Bb6 38.Rc1 and 39.Rc8.

Perhaps better is 39.h5 g5 40.Rd7+ Re7 41.Rxe7+ Kxe7 42.Kg4.

May-05-08  Halofire: i would have done 16.Bxf4 securing the center and winning the pawn. I have played the King's Gambit Accepted a lot and that pawn can become a nuisance if not a full out threat if left unchecked. After he makes the move 17.Nd5 then retreat the bishop to the safety of g3. From there he can help defend against possible attacks on the kingside plus he still maintains whites center. Next follow up with 18.Nf3. this further secures a strong center for white. I think that Shneider timed his moves just a little off and gave Karpov tempii. That is my determination.
Jan-11-17  Helios727: <Halofire> White would lose his Queen if 16. Bxf4. Is it possible you meant 15. Bxf4 ?

  ChessHigherCat: <Helios727> He must have meant 17. Bxf4

  ChessHigherCat: <wwall: Better may be 35.e6+ f6 36.Rd7 Rxd7 37.exd7 Bb6 38.Rc1 and 39.Rc8> That's a funny pin preventing f6xN! In your line (I just noticed your post is 10 years old, so I'm really addressing anybody), wouldn't 37...Nc2 be better for black, with the idea of taking the bishop or b-pawn or closing the diagonal with Nd4+?
Jan-12-17  Helios727: Wouldn't 17. Bxf4 lose the d-pawn ?

  wwall: <ChessHigherCat> After 37...Nc2, White has time to play 38.Ne6+ (also preventing ...Nd4+) and queen his pawn, winning the rook (which wouldn't happen after 37...Bb6 as the bishop is on the queening square). For example, 38.Ne6+ Kf7 39.d8=Q Rxd8 40.Nxd8+ and 41.Nxb7. The knight fork after 37...Nc2 doesn't help Black any and not a big threat.

<Helios727> After 17.Bxf4?! (17.Nf3 protects the pawn and is more aggressive) 17...Qxd4 18.Bh6 Rfe8 (or 18...Rfd8) 19.Nf4 Qb4 or 19...Qc4 and the position looks equal.
