Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-30-08  GreenArrow: 13...Bf5!? with 0-0-0 next move seems like an interesting and relatively untested idea. Maybe 15.h3 might be a better way for white to consolidate e.g. 15.h3 Rhe8 16.0-0 17.Nb7 Nd2, although fritz suggests a unique idea here in 15...Bh2 after which 16.Kf1 is probably advisable anyway. In the game, after 15...Rhe8, 16.Kf1 has the strong idea of Bxf6 followed by Bg4, with white taking over so 16...Kb8 has a specific point other than just being a 'useful move'. After an interesting middlegame, fritz then suggests the very strong 27.Re1!! after which white probably has excellent winning chances, e.g. 27.Re1!! Rxe1 28.Rh8+! Rd8 29.Rxd8+ Qxd8 30.Qf4+! Kb7 31.Qxg4.
