Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-10-16  RookFile: Not sure what the idea of 14. Qb3 was. Presumably Boris is going to defend f7 and even a hacker like me can see that Qxb5 is asking for a discovered attack on the queen. I think this is the sort of move that Capa would quickly reject. Keres has more imagination - there must be a point to this, but what it is escapes me.
