  tpstar: Fritz 7 Deep Position Analysis (20 MB):

1) 11. Bb2 d6

a) 12. Qe3 Qe8 13. Ne1 Bxg2 14. Nxg2= 0.00/12

b) 12. Rad1 Nd7 13. Ne1 Bxg2 14. Nxg2= -0.06/13

2) 11. Bb2 Qe7

a) 12. Qe3 d6 13. Rfd1 a5 14. Rd2= 0.00/11

b) 12. Rfd1 d6 13. Qe3 Nd7 14. Rd2= 0.00/12

3) 11. Bb2 Qe8

a) 12. a4 a5 13. Rad1 d6 14. Ne1= -0.09/13

b) 12. Qe3 d6 13. Ne1 Bxg2 14. Nxg2= -0.03/13

Keres' plan of 11 ... d6 & 14 ... Qe8 seems most active. Black gained space on the Kingside and controlled the center throughout the middlegame. The e4 square was extremely weak, and Black exploited this skillfully.

  perfidious: An excellent display by Black, illustrating the potential of the line beginning with 9....f5, which became popular at the highest levels in the late 1970s, after 9....c5 came in for some difficulties.

  Fusilli: I suspect Panno's setup would have been better playing for e4, e.g. with 12.Nd2 instead of 12.Rad1. Then Rae1, f3, e4, or maybe e4 without f3. I surely dislike 16.d5, but it looks like the White pieces (N on g2, R on d1) are not well placed by then.

<perfidious>, how is White supposed to play this, otherwise?

Jun-18-14  zydeco: Keres is so smooth. Petrosian improved on this line later in the tournament with 16.f4 followed by e4 (an immediate 16.e4 is met by 16....f4).
