Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-04-09  ToTheDeath: <23.Qd3!?> 23.Rxa6 Rxa6 24.Bxa6 c4 yields Black reasonable play for a pawn.

<26.Kh1?!> White misses a typical anti-Benoni blow- 26.e5! dxe5 27.f5- when the e4 square for his knight and the powerful d6 pawn gives White some advantage.

<36...dxe5?> The losing move- after the fearless 36...Qxc4! 37.e6 Qxd5 38.exf7 Rxe3 39.f8=Q Rxf3 40.Qxh6+ Kg8 41.Qxg5+ Kf8 White must force a draw with 42.Qd8+.
