Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-08-03  drukenknight: another carokann with the Sultan. It looks like both players get a little confused in the middle game, see where you think Tartakover when wrong.
Oct-08-03  drukenknight: the f3 variation has a name according to Tark. I have no idea where/what the N sack is at the beginning.
Oct-09-03  Wild Bard: Taking the knight allows Qh4+, retrieving the piece, so it wasn't a sac.

This is the Fantasy variation (3 f3)

Oct-09-03  drukenknight: looking at this again: 27 Rg5 looks more straightforward; Q attacks B, R attacks B.

Tartakover doesnt have a name for the 3 f3 var. But after 2 Nc3 pxp 3 f3 is it called Milner-Barry gambit.

Sep-06-10  iamsheaf: Wow Awful opening by white. Saced a pawn for nothing and then played and even worse middle game. And finally, to top all that, refused to resign till black was threatening a mate in 2.

  zanzibar: At the moment the score reads

<1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.f3 e6 4.Bd3 Nf6>

But <MillBase> gives <4.Be3>, which is the correct move according to <Weiner Schach-Zeitung v9 N5 Mar 1931 p67>.

Running an engine shows 4.Bd3 to be a mistake due to Black queen's x-ray on d4 (4.Bd3 dxe4 and then 5.fxe4 Qxe4 and if 5.Bxe4 f5! interference and the pawn falls anyways).

Correction slip submitted.

Mar-03-18  Saniyat24: I read in a book, when I was little, that Sultan Khan didn't castle...!
Mar-03-18  Saniyat24: Starting from 23...f4, Sultan Khan produces a string of excellent moves to deflate Tartakower's position...very precise play indeed...!
