  rover: I think after 12...Be6 black would still have been ok. The refutation of Bg6 is very elegant though.
Feb-17-04  karlzen: I think black would still be considerably worse after 12...Be6 13.Bf3 losing a pawn. 12...Bd7 was a better try but still the position looks grim after 13.Ne4! Nxe4 14.Bxe7 Re8 15.Bh4 Nc5 16.Bg4! for example: 16...Re5 17.f4! Bxg4 18.fxe5 Bxd1 19.exd6 g5 20.Re5! gxh4 21.Rxc5 and the bishop on d1 has no available squares I'm afraid and white will come out at least a pawn up. Complications such as these always favour the more developed player. Anyway, it's hard psychologically to play such a move as black would then resign to the fact that he should have played it in the first place. In fact I would almost call 10...0-0 a mistakeas it got black in troble defending Be7. Instead there is an important maneouvre for black here: 10...Na6-c7 covering b5, d5 and the knight can come to e6 (as a bonus hitting the bishop on g5) followed by Bd7. Black may need to play d6-d5 and then on Nf3-e5 he answers Ne8 (the bishop must naturally be protected or Bg5 moved away) and f6 with a good game.

  Sem: 9. c6 looks convincing to keep White's knight at bay, but perhaps Nc6 would have been better: defending e7, and making room for the rook.
Nov-02-17  Cibator: British player P H Clarke annotated this game once, calling 11. ... Bf5 "not good enough", and advocating the ... Na6-c7 and ... Bd7 set-up. (Unfortunately I can't remember any more details about the exact move-order.) He rightly slated 12. ... Bg6 as a "fatal error".
