  TheAlchemist: Another quick kill in this variation of the Rubinstein French. 18...Qc5 was a terrible blunder.

18...g6 doesn't help: 19.Rxg6! fxg6 20.Qxg6 Kh8 21.Ng5.

Another possibility is 18...Qf4 19.Rdg1 Rd8 20.Nd2! g6 21.Rf3! Qxd2 22.Rxg6+! Kf8 23.Rxf7+! Kxf7 24.Qh7+ Ke8 25.Rxe6+ Kf8 26.Qe7+ and mate to follow.

Maybe 18...Nf6 is best. 19.Qh4 Ne4 20.Ng5 Qxg5! 21.Rxg5 Nxg5 22.Qxg5, where White has a tough endgame to convert.

Anand vs Van Wely, 2001, 2001 is where 14.Bxh7+ was first played (blindfold!), and another game from the same tournament, Khalifman vs Bareev, 2002, 2002, which appeared in the same tournament. Bareev produced a novelty 13...Be7, but it didn't turn out that well either.

Nov-04-07  sallom89: good game of chess :P
Oct-14-15  TwoMoves: 11...Qxqg2 is a exceptionally risky line for black. 11...e5 is more comfortable
Sep-03-16  mycroft2120: On 18. ..g6 simply 19. Rh3 mates. There is no defence.
Feb-10-18  mycroft2120: I mixed up my comments; on 18. ..g6, white crashes through with 19. Rxg6+!. Black has to take, so after 19. ..fxg6 20. Qxg6+ Kh8 21. Ng5 black has no defense. If for example 21. ..Nf6 then 22. Nf7+! Rxf7 23. Rd8+ with mate to follow. Black has to give up his queen, after which mate on the g and h-files will come too fast for the Bc8 and Ra8 to be of any use in the defense.
May-18-18  posoo: DIS game shod not even be in DATA base in my opinun let alone MOROZUVIK"S NUTTABLE GAMES!

Evyone knows how EASY it was to beat Look Vun Wolus back in da year 2005 - NOT exceptional or EVEN INTERESTING! Da poor man has had his share of TRUBBLES and i can SYMPATHIZE. But do not VALIDATE them they will only get worse!

Morozevich.
