Jul-14-04  vonKrolock: <ray keene: "9...Bxc3? Premature. Correct is 9...h6!"> i'm speculating whith the possibility of 10.f4! even whithout the exchange in c3... what exactly the difference? - after p. ex. hg fg, i dont see nothing better than Bxc3... (recent com. in Goodman Nunn about a point move too)

  ray keene: the main difference is that the white qb is given access to a3 perhaps more quickly than black wd want.
Jul-15-04  vonKrolock: <ray keene> thanks, i see... a closer research demonstrates briefly: a) 9...h6 is almost forced, otherwise White`s plus is consolidated; b)10.Nf3 Bxc3 11.bc Ne4 12.Ba3! is good for White too (p. ex. Quinteros-Pereira, Tijuca, 1978); c)10.f4! hg 11.fg was played in Yusupov-Rastenis, Vilnius 1978 and after (c1) 11...Nh7 12.g6 Ng5 13.gf Nf7 14.Qh5! White had a plus;(c2) 11...Bxc3 will lead to Keene-Wockanfuss 1977 - aspointed in my previous kibitz (c3) 11...Ne8 probably is bad too, but (c4) 11...Ng4!? (found in Krolocksheimer Opening-Research Center) is perhaps the best for Black here

Thanks.

Yes, it is. See Juan Manuel Bellon Lopez

  Jonathan Sarfati: Yes, the sac is not quite as convincing against an immediate 9... h6, but still hard to deal with, e.g. Yusupov vs G Rastenis, 1978
