Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-22-06  LIFE Master AJ: This is an important game to theory, many opening books and general references, (like MCO and ECO) quote this game.

However, White played badly, and made at least one terribly bad move/blunder.

Feb-22-06  shor: excuse me <LMAJ> but i don't see why black is winning,can you explain please.
Feb-22-06  LIFE Master AJ: <shor>
No problem, Black will simply align his Q+B on the long diagonal, this is known as a "battery" in chess terminology. White will have to give up material to stop a mate on g2.

I just got Fritz 9 about two weeks ago, I don't think I have used it here yet, this would be a good chance.

After the following moves ... which are pretty easy to understand: 26...Bc6; 27.Rac1,
White must play something like this.

< [Much worse would be:
</= 27.Qa7? Qd5; 28.Kf1, (Box?)

< (Not 28.f3??, QxP/f3; . Fritz shows its mate in five - at the very most.) >

28...Qg2+; 29.Ke2 Re8+; 30.Kd3!? Qd5+!; 31.Kc2 Qc4+; 32.Kb2 Qd4+; 33.Kc2 Be4+!!; 34.Rxe4! Rc8+!; 35.Qc7[] Rxc7+; 36.Kb3 Qc3+; 37.Ka4 Ra7+; 38.Kb5 Qc5#]. >

27...Bxb7; 28.Rxc5 bxc5; ["Minus-slash-plus," ( , or Black is winning).] ... leaves Black a piece up.

Feb-23-06  shor: oh, i actually thought that qe7 would work, but it leaves black a piece short.

thanks <AJ>.

Mar-15-06  LIFE Master AJ: <shor> Your welcome.

I am currently involved in a very deep study of the games of the QID.

Nov-25-11  maelith: Hi, Life Master Aj, so after these years of study of QID, what is your assessment of this defense?

Nov-26-11  JoergWalter: looks like this game rehabilitated 17.... b2, which was considered "?" after Gheorghiu vs. Cserna, Berlin 1986. (1:0) 16.c6 cxb3 17.Re1 b2 18.Bxb2 Nc5 is actually Tschernin's recommendation from 1985.
