|Feb-05-07|| ||Shajmaty: Black is clearly better after 16...Nd6.|
|Feb-05-07|| ||chesslearning: This game doesn't make sense to me. Why 26. Ba3? Why not move the queen out of the way? And why doesn't black take the queen on the next move? Is there a mistake with the PGN?|
|Feb-05-07|| ||tamar: Hard to say without asking the players, but it looks like Piket realized 25 Bxf8 was a huge mistake, and was trying to muddy the waters with 26 Ba3. |
Kasimjanov on the other hand knew that if Piket took time to move his Queen on the 26th move, 26...gxf3 leads to a typically crushing Kside attack, eg
26 Qd3 gxf3 with ...Qg5 coming in too.
25 Bxc4 isn't great, but was necessary to stop the knight coming to e3.
|Feb-05-07|| ||IMDONE4: The problem is that white, in the KID, can get absolutely nothing done on the queenside. After 16... Nd6, Kazhidamov basically plugs up the queenside from further advances, leaving him free to do watever he wants on the kingside. I think the game is virtually over after 20...b6, because there are no more white pawns that can dent black's Qside.|
|Feb-05-07|| ||chesslearning: <tamar> 26. ...gxf3 is not possible.|
|Feb-05-07|| ||Shajmaty: <IMDONE4: [...] I think the game is virtually over after 20...b6 [...]> Game is (strategically) over after 16...Nd6.|
|Feb-05-07|| ||Shajmaty: <chesslearning: This game doesn't make sense to me. Why 26. Ba3? Why not move the queen out of the way? And why doesn't black take the queen on the next move?> This game is 5' blitz! However, although 25. Bxf8? 26. Ba3? and 28. Bxg4 are errors, 26...g4! is even stronger than 26...Nxd1. 27...hxg4? is too much, again.|
|Feb-05-07|| ||euripides: 16...Nd6 poses an obstacle, but White has better ways to try to dislodge it than Piket found here. 17. Nb5 might be one option. P H Nielsen vs B Kantsler, 2001 is a fairly similar example.|
|Feb-05-07|| ||tamar: <26. ...gxf3 is not possible.> good point
