Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-26-11  King Death: Najdorf's opening play looks passive, but he makes no mistake after his opponent unsoundly sacrifices a pawn and gives up a lot of light squares with 12.f5.
Nov-26-11  AnalyzeThis: Just my opinion, but I believe 12. f5 is a perfectly good move, if followed up correctly. The idea is mate the black king, not send the queen out to left field. Surely something like 13. Qh4 should be considered. The threat is Qh4, Bh6, and Ng5, as in this game:

Bisguier vs Larsen, 1965

Nov-26-11  AnalyzeThis: 13. Qh4 e6 14 Qh5.
Nov-26-11  tonsillolith: Why not <42...b2 43. Ngh6+ Kh8 44. Nf7+ Kg8 45. N7h6+ Kh8 46. Nf7+> ?
