Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-18-04  nopawnintended: 16)Rg1 for white, followed by warding off the various threats and trying to regroup seems not too far fetched to the untrained eye. I wonder if there is an undefensible attack coming that I am missing or if at a more experienced level of analysis white's position is just too crappy to work with, thus the resignation.

  fm avari viraf: Yermolinsky imaginative & aggresive play is simply a delight to watch. After 15...Nxf2 white is defenseless & his position is in shambles.

  Sastre: <DarthStapler: What if 13. bxc3?> 13.bxc3 Qc7 14.Bd2 Nc6 with the idea of 15...Bb7 is good for Black.
