Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-14-08  krippp: A rather interesting miniatyre. <6...Bd4?!> can be considered as refuted after Janowski's fine play in this game. :)

It seems like Black's only practical mistake after <6...Bd4?!> was <11...Nxd5?!>. After <11...Qxd5 12.Qxd5 Nxd5 13.Bd2 Bd7 14.c4 Nf6> Black can still hang on, though his position is inferior.

But after <11...Nxd5?!>, I simply cannot find a satisfactory defence for Black. Best seems to be <15...Qxd1 16.Raxd1 Na6>, but after <17.b4!> Black's queenside looks ridiculous.

After <15...Nd3?> it's all over for certain. <16...Nf4> will not save Black, as after <17.Qxd6 cxd6 18.Bg3 g5 19.h4 f6 20.Rd1> White's attack will sweep through anything in it's path.

And if <17...Qxd1+> is tried, <18.Rxd1 g5 19.Nxg5!> will destroy Black in the form of <19...hxg5 20.Bxg5 bxc6 21.Be7 Ne6 22.Rg3+ Kh7 23.Bxf8 Nxf8 24.Rd8 Bb7 25.Rd4 Ng6 26.Rd7>
