Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-16-04  flamboyant: wow, nice game by judit!!
Dec-16-04  themindset: 27.Rxg3!! and white regains the initiative. sure, Ne2 bags the queen, but white has more than sufficient compensation.
Dec-17-04  pointguard: 27.Rxg3 leads to...Ne2+ 28. Kf1 Nxg3+ 29. Ke1 Nh1 30.Ne4 f5 and White is in serious trouble. 29. Kg2 Ne2 30. Qb3(or Qc2) g5 becomes a serious threat. The problem is that the black queen is in a powerful position, that white cannot dislodge her in a few moves.
Dec-22-04  themindset: 27...Ne2+ then 28.Kg2!!

and white is fine. play would, of course continue 28...Nxc3 29.bxc3 and then perhaps 29...f5

and white is enjoying a definite edge, in my humble opinion.

Jan-26-05  GreenDayGuy: I hated 7. c4? It may have attacked the queen, but it hindered the white bishop's movement.
Jan-26-05  Saruman: I think 7.Qa4!? is interesting. The idea is to play 8.Bc4 and perhaps attack f7 accompanied by Ng5. Later it might be possible to strike in the center with d4. The problem with 7.c4?! is that it creates many problems with Be2 as <GreenDayGuy> pointed out. Also d3 becomes a longtime weakness and it justifies 6.-e5 in a sense since it makes d4 virtually impossible.
Dec-04-05  yenerowitz: how old was Judit then?
Dec-04-05  s4life: 8 years...
Apr-13-06  Bobak Zahmat: <s4life: 8 years...> Are you for real!???
Aug-06-06  gamer945094: I Balogh... What an unfortunate name... if it is real...
Jun-21-07  waves00: I think that White could have, by 12. Nd5, supported a later b4 advance. The bishop on d6 wasn't dangerous; by trading, White gave his most flexible minor piece away. Note also that, if White is the defender, knight to d5 blocks the semi-open d file. Black can trade his dark-square bishop for the knight, but the delay will let White open the b file and attack b7. Is 12. Nd5 better than the text?
Apr-19-15  detroitwes11: Truly wonderful game full of talent im in aw of the poetry in motion she displays .
Feb-27-17  Weeping Warrior: 29. Qc1 Qe2+ 30. Kg1 Rxd3 31. Qb1 Rxd2 32. Rxd2 Qxd2 33. Qf1 Ne2+ 34. Kh1 Qxb2 35. White Resigns.
Jan-18-18  MariusDaniel: Good chess skills!
