Mar-16-07  Brown: Interesting, seeing Radjabov on the white side of this line. Smirin, the other torch-bearer in the KID, does his part to make this an exciting game. Nice knight sac...

  plang: : In Bacrot-Shchekachev France 2000 White played 13 c5 and went on to win (game not included in this database); 13 f3 was new.

<Nov-22-08 Xeroxx: Wouldn't 18.Nb5 be better?>

Smirin recommended 18 cxd..cxd 19 Nb5..Ne8 20 Nd2..h5 21 Nc4..Ra6 22 a5 with a solid White edge.

23 Kh1?! lost time; 23 Nd2 inviting a repetition was an alternative. Play would have been quite complicated after 26 Bxg4..Qg5 27 h3..f3+! but Black's attack would likely have prevailed. 32 Bxa6..bxa 33 Nb5..Bd7 34 Nxd6..g3 35 Nf5..Bxf5 36 exf..Ng5 37 Rf2..Qxh2+ 38 Rxh2..Rxh2+ 39 Kg1..Nh3+ 40 Kf1..g2+ would not have helped White. White was able to avoid mate but Black obtained a material advantage. With 38 Rg1 White could have put up a tough defense; 38 Bxd6? was a tactical error that left White with no chance.
