|Jul-21-03|| ||yorkebrazil: I have search in books and 16. f1 is the right move, but why black didnt take the pawn with 17... bxd5. Anyone can see? |
|Jul-21-03|| ||Dustin J.: 17... Nbxd5
18. Red1 leads to centralising a trade with Be4 son too come It'll even out but White will have removed Black from the center. Nevermind White's dark bishop is threatening the rook still after all that.
|Jul-26-03|| ||yorkebrazil: Sorry still dont see why black didnt taked the pawn... e4 will never come and after 18. ed1 c7 18. g3 e6 and I dont see how white is OK. |
|Jul-26-03|| ||fred lennox: !7...Nbxd5, Bxh7-Kxh7, Ne4 is my guess |
|Jul-27-03|| ||Brian Watson: Seems to be some confusion about where in the game we are:
at move 16 white has played his knight to f1 (so can't play Ne4); and also NbXd5 would be Black's 16th, not 17th move.|
I'm baffled too.
|Jul-28-03|| ||fred lennox: Then 16...Nxd5, Bg5...Nb6, Rad1 (threatening Rxe5)...Qc7, Bxf6...Bxf6, Qf5...g6, Qxf6 |
|Jul-29-03|| ||Brian Watson: Okay, thanks, that makes sense. I saw the idea of Bg5 and Rad1, but was trying to combine it with the previoulsy mentioned idea of Be4, which doesn't go anywhere . . . |
|Jul-29-03|| ||hickchess99: so did nikolic play chess after he started dressing like a woman? |
|Jul-29-03|| ||yorkebrazil: The idea of 17. g5 is good, but it doesnt close the question because after 17. g5 b6 18. ad1 h6 19. xe5 de5 xd8 20. axd8 e3 and I think that black is better. |
|Jul-29-03|| ||Brian Watson: Well I think Fred's basic idea still stands:
17.Bg5 Nb6 18.Rad1 h6 19.Bxf6 Bxf6 20.Qf5 g6 21.Qf3 or Qg4
and white has compenstation for the pawn (Black's kingside is weakened and his pieces are a bit loose, while white has gained tempo).
|Jul-29-03|| ||fred lennox: 19 Rxe5...dxe5, 20 Rxd8...Raxd8 21 Qb7...Nd7, 22 Bxf6...Bxf6 23 Qxa6 |
