Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-13-04  Poisonpawns: Isnt the strongest line 8..Rxd4!,I know *..d6 is solid but Morozevich`s attack just gets to strong after the slow d6,c6,d5 moves by hebden.

  OneArmedScissor: 25. Rxd5!
This is a great move.
There are so many tactical variations that can stem from this move, especially if 25. ...cxd5

<8...d6> Yes, 8...Rxe4 is the critical line, although after 9.a3 Bxc3 10.Bxc3 White has some though perhaps not enough compensation for a pawn.

<13.h6!> Not 13.Bh6? Ng4! with Black in the driver's seat.

<15.Na4> Oddly enough, 15.Bxf6 Bd6 16.Nxd5! cxd5 17.Bd4 is playable, but I like this better as it keeps queens on.

<18...Ne3> Or 18...Qxa2 19.Bxc4 followed by Qd6 and Qf6 with decisive attack.

<21.Bb2> White's king is now quite safe and Black's attack is shown to be premature. The rest is a massacre.

  tpstar: 27 ... Qd7 28. Ba3+ and White mates on f7 or h8.

Morozevich revives a museum piece opening.
