Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-16-04  jeffnool: Magnus clearlly did his homework..Nice game
Jul-16-04  Dionyseus: Nicely done.
Jul-16-04  white pawn: What happens if 13...E5 ? 14.QxE5(threatening to take the rook)? That's the only thing I can see, but it's hard for me to play out the game without a set. Also, why did black resign?
Jul-16-04  seoulmama: white pawn, Black loses the Knight, so he resigns. If Black takes on e5, White will win back the material while crashing through on the e-file.

  acirce: What I never understood, neither during the game nor now, is what Magnus had planned on 13..Bxb5. Black seems to do very fine in all lines I can see.
Jul-16-04  Dick Brain: <acirce> 13...Bxb5 14. Rd5 Bd7 15. Rad1 Bd6 16. Ne4 appears to mix things up a little. I suppose you've already analyzed it though.
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: Yes, and I might prefer 15..Bc6!? Look at it, White will end up with compensation for the material deficit but how much?
Jul-16-04  Dick Brain: <acirce> Yes that might be the critical line. I did not consider that Black would give up his queen (maybe the players of the game missed this too), but it makes sense since he gets two pieces and a rook for it unless I am again missing something. I suppose White will snatch the a-pawn and/(or?) try to manouver the Queen to e5 (after Black takes off the bishop) where it will threaten c7, g5, and h8.

  acirce: I'd say "unclear" after looking at it a little more. Maybe this was Magnus' intention after all. White will probably get a passed a-pawn and it does look dangerous with Black not enough developed but maybe it could be held down. Or they just missed 15..Bc6 like you suggest. Anyway, this is my last post for the next 10 days or so - off to play an OTB tourney again.. See you later all!

  acirce: Dannevig looking for revenge right now. Carlsen-Dannevig in Politiken Cup is ongoing. Looking good for Magnus again though, which is not a surprise.
Jul-26-04  MoonlitKnight: It's now on move 25. Dannevig looks completely lost, so after today it will be 4/4 in Politiken for Magnus.

  acirce: Agreed. 26.f4 was totally lethal. On ..Rf8 White's best is not Bb4 but Re7!
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: Ok, he played Bb4 though... winning too of course.
Jul-26-04  MoonlitKnight: On Re7, what about simply Rf7?
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: I was thinking that Rxf7 Kxf7 f5 looked clearer than winning an exchange but it's just a matter of taste really.
Jul-30-04  MoonlitKnight: It's funny, he ended up with a rook for a knight in both games.
Jul-31-04  Swede: <MoonlitKnight> Where did he end up with a rook for a knight in this game?
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: Technically he never did, but after 22..Nc6 23.Bxd8 Nxd8 he would have.
Jul-31-04  Swede: Another possible continuation of the game is 22. ... ♖d2 23. ♗xe7 ♖xc2.
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: Yes, but that loses a piece. Less bad to just lose the exchange..
Jul-31-04  Swede: Are you sure? Fritz doesn't seem to think so.
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: <Are you sure?> No.
Jul-07-05  bomb the bishop: How should white respond after
13.. ♗xb5?
