Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-20-06  Maynard5: This game features extremely good positional play by Lilienthal, in particular the use of the c-file and the advance of the h-pawn, which enables White to post his knight on the strong square f5. Keres actually plays some strong moves in the opening here, Qc8 followed by 15. ... Qc2, after which White's bishop is tied down on c1. But after 16. e4, Black should probably reply with 16. ... Nc5, or possibly 16. ... Bc5, rather than with 16. ... e5, after which he is rapidly driven into a very passive position.
