Feb-28-05  soberknight: What was White thinking?? Sometimes I can say of Wall's hapless opponents "Oh, he just missed the plainlly obvious discovered attack with check or the knight fork," but here you're sacrificing a piece for two pawns BEFORE black has castled! There is no mating combination in the final position: Black just exchanges off the queens and wins with his extra piece.
Dec-10-06  Karel: I must be missing something cause black could've played 11. ... Bxd2+ 12. Qxd2 Qxa1+ winning a rook. Right?

  Karpova: <Karel>
That's correct. 11.f4 was a lemon 'cause now the bishop doesn't defend d2 anymore.
Dec-10-06  mrbiggs: 11 ..Bxd2 does win a rook, but Fritz says it's the 6th best move because the other five win more material.

Interestingly, it gives 11 ...Qe3+ as the second best behind 11 ...Bc5 by slightly over two pawns.

Of course, the difference between -10, -12 and -14 doesn't matter much because the game is lost anyway.

(All this was taking from 17 ply Fritz 9 analysis)
