Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-05-04  Nickisimo: 18...Rxh3, a necessary evil b/c of the possible discoveries, but after that things just totally fell apart for Black. This is a good example of how to attack an uncastled king position.
Aug-05-04  notsodeepthought: Cute pun - good game, too...
Aug-05-04  molinov: Do you think black had any chances with 15... Nfxe4 16 fxe4 Nxe4 threatening the Queen pressing on c3 and with the possibility of moving the Knight to g3 allowing the bishop to enter the e4 square aiming at c2
Aug-05-04  mjk: <Nickisimo>'s point about 18...♖xh3 makes 10...h6 a critical weakening of the K-side. What if Black had just immediately started with his plan ...b4, ...♕a5.? Based on similar games in the database, he seems to think this plan is better than blocking the ♕'s path with ...♘b6. So what would have happened without White's K-side counterplay?

  lostemperor: Player's comment.
13...d5 better, with the idea 14.Bh3 g5!? to hold off white a little longer And maybe 18...Nc5 better, but white is fine after 19.exf7+ Kxf7 20.Nb3.

also more annoying for white is 20...Ne5! with 21...Nc4 to come. 22...Ng6 would prevent 23 Qf4+ etc but create no counterchances.

Not 23...Kg8 24.Rh8+! and also not 23...Ke7 24.Nf5+! exf5 25.Bxc5.

Stellwagen again finished off like a 'efficient man-eating tiger'.

Aug-05-04  artemis: Just a question: I understand that after 5. ... a6, the position is called the sicilian Nadjorf, however, after the following move, 6. ... e6, I believe that it is known as the sicilian schveningen, A line that Kasparov has adopted on several occasions, including against Anatoli Karpov in 1985, and against Nigel Short just this year.
Aug-05-04  PawnBlock: Two comments:
1. Black's dark-B needed to be on e7 long before it finally ended up there. Either at move 10 or 14 would have been a nice time for that I think.

2. After 14. Bh3, I thought that Black could try g6 followed by (hate to beat a dead horse but . . .) Be7, to keep things sowed up; before then proceeding with his Q-side designs.

  kevin86: I really enjoy the ballet and pin show by the white queen. There was even a case where white put his queen into attack-but the attacker was hopelessly pinned. The coup de grace was on the poor black bishop.
Aug-05-04  Andrew Chapman: I couldn't see the win after 30 Bc5 after 30.. Rxc5 31. Nxc5 Qc6 32. Qg8+ Bc8 33. Ne6 Ng6 but having checked it with the computer, white then has 34. Nxg7+ Ke7 35. Nf5+ Ke8 36. Rd6 wins. Was that obvious to everybody else?

  patzer2: With 24. Rh8! White utilizes a pin to deflect the Knight and create a winning attack after 24...Ng6 25. Qxd6 Nxh8 26. Qxd6!

If 26...Kd8??, then 27. Nb5+! Bd5 28. Rxd5+ Rxd5 29. Bb6# gives White a nice mate-in-three.

Although 27. Qg8+ wins simply, equally effective is 27. Nb3! Bd5 28. Rxd5 Rxd5 29. Qg8+ Bf8 30. exd5 Qd7 (30...Ng6 31. Qe6+ Ne7 32. Nc5 Qb5 33. d6 Qc6 34. d7+ Kd8 35. Qf7 Qd5 36. Qe8+ Kc7 37. Nxa6+ Kd6 38. d8Q+ Ke6 39. Qxd5+ Kxd5 40. Qd7+ Ke5 41. Bd4+ Kf4 42. Qg4#) 31. Qxh8 .
