Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-14-07  euripides: An old note by Gligoric, who played this line for both sides, says that 13.Bc4 is bad because of 13...Rxe3 14.Qxe3 Ng4. Presumably there is a refutation to this. Perhaps White then plays 15.Bxf7+ Kh8 16.Ne6 ?
Sep-14-07  ColonelCrockett: I don't think Bxf7+ provides White with anything. Rxe6 seems the best line. it looks like Bxf7 does nothing but add complication. worth a try in a blitz game but not anywhere else. just my opinion.
Sep-14-07  euripides: <Colonel> thanks. Do you mean Rxe3 ?

After 13.Bc4 Rxe3 14.Qxe3 Ng4 15.Bxf7+ Kh8 16.Ne6 Nxe3 17.Nxd8 Nxf1 18.Rxf1 or 16...Bxe6 17.Qxe6 Bd4+ 18.Kh1 Nf2+ 19 Rxf2 Bxf2 White seems to come out a pawn up, but am I missing something ?

Sep-24-07  ColonelCrockett: 16. ... Nxe3 17.Nxd8 Nxf1 18.Kxf1 Nc6 19.Nxc6 bxc6 20.Rd1 Ba6+ 21.Kf2 c5 and Black has the two Bishops for his pawn (although White gets the 7th). The position is about equal and probably drawn. The point that Gligoricis trying to make (I'm assuming your referring to his book "I play against pieces") is that Black is better if White tried for too much . . . the move Rxe6 is an unexpected and very psychological move. Black can inevitably "shake" White and get him to avoid the best line . . . and even at that Black isn't lost.
