|Aug-05-04|| ||Whitehat1963: Kaspy gets a serious a** whipping from a much lower-rated player in the opening of the day. Might this have been a simul? |
|Aug-05-04|| ||AdrianP: Yes, it was a simul at Cologne. |
|Dec-29-06|| ||Kruglov: Why not win the Exchange with 12...Nf2+ ?|
|Dec-29-06|| ||Black Vampire: Kruglov, Holzke must have feared 13.Nh5, (thatīs why he played 12...h5?)though Black can defend it without problems. The computer gives a clear advantage to Black after the only correct 12...Nf2+!. After 13.Ng5! Black cannot play 13...Nf2+? because of the threats 15.Bc4 and 16.Nxh5.|
|Dec-30-06|| ||sucaba: After 12. _ ♘f2+ 13. ♖xf2 ♗xf2 14. ♘h5, White has a dangerous attack, for example 14. _ g6 15. ♘g7+ ♔e7
16. ♕d2, winning a tempo by attacking the f2♗ and preparing 17. ♕d2-g5+, and if Black answers 17. _ f7-f6 then 18. ♕g5-h6.
Or 14. _ 0-0 15. ♕d2 and ♕d2-g5 next.
It seems that playing 12. _ h5 was a good decision. Perhaps Holzke was inspired by the move 13. _ h5 in Anderssen vs Max Lange, 1859, where Black was able to use the uncastled ♖ on the h-file, too.
|Jan-01-07|| ||Black Vampire: Sucaba, after 12...Nf2+ 13.Rxf2, Bxf2 14.Nh5, why not 14...0-0?|
|Jan-01-07|| ||sucaba: With 12. _ ♘f2+ 13. ♖xf2 ♗xf2 14. ♘h5 0-0 15. ♕d2, White puts up the mean threat 16. ♕g5 g6 17. ♕h6 gxh5 18. f6 ♘xf6 19. ♕g5+ ♔h8 20. ♕xf6+ ♔g8 21. ♗h6 and 22. ♕g7#|
|Apr-13-11|| ||farkaskutya: I'm puzzled why this is classified as a Modern/Robatsch (B06) opening.|
|Mar-13-12|| ||Everett: 29..h3! Ice water in the veins...|
|Mar-13-12|| ||efvaatn: yeah, ice water it is|
|Dec-29-12|| ||sukatma: why Kasparov don't 22.Nxb5|

Black plays 22...Rxf1+ 23.Rxf1 axb5, and is a piece ahead.
Kasparov's line gave him a rook and knight for the queen. That is not full compensation, but it is better than being a piece down.
