Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-27-05  Brown: I'm guessing that after 21...Bxa3 22.bxa3 white has the advantage - central space, two bishops, two pawns and harmonious pieces for the loss of the exchange.

Jan-18-06  foolishmovesss: <brown> I think your right. Another feature is the passed pawn. I think it is a real strength here. Protected, and supported by bishops, this pawn will be impossible to blockade. I see that pawn costing black a full piece later down the road. It can create alot of threats. My 2 cents of course.
