Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-04-07  morphyvsfischer: A classic example of how to play against the Classical Dutch formation. There are lots of tactics that stop the e4 advance by white, for instance 12 Nxc6 Bxc6 13 e4? dxe4 14 dxe4 Nxe4! winning a pawn because of the check on d4. Later, 16 e4? dxe4 17 dxe4 Bxe4! wins a pawn because of 18 Qxe4? f5. However, White's actual choice was horrible. 16 a3 Nc6 17 e4 is correct. 17 e4 was necessary instead of Qg3 as well.

20 g4 hxg4 21 Qxg4 Kf7! leaves white with the weaker king.

25 fxe5 was encouraged because white did not want to face ...e4 or ...exf4 followed by ...d4 and plumping a piece down on e3 at some point.

32...cxd4? 33 Bb4

42 Rxc3 dxc3 43 g3 Kf6 44 Kd3? Nf2+ 45 Ke2 Nh1 wins another pawn.
