Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-16-06  suenteus po 147: 25.Nd1?? is one of those moves that haunts you for the rest of your life.
Mar-19-06  Topzilla: I think that such stupid move must be explained only it if were blitz.
Mar-19-06  erimiro1: Such games are played by 7 yrs old kids, and I don't mean Reshevsky! After 5.Ba4?? I can't see why not 5.-b5 6.Bb3 c4 - white doesn't have any compensation for the piece; 8.-g6? gives up a pawn for nothing. Afterwards black continues his generosity by 13.-Nbd7??; but then white replies by a "clever" self mate combination: First he moves his rook to the most ridiculous place on the board, by 23. Rf4? and then complete the game by 25.Ne1??. So many question marks make me conclude my comment by asking Why?

<1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.Bb5+ Bd7 4.Nc3?> The first out of the book move, and a poor one at that. Logical here is 4.Bxd7+. <4...a6?!> Perhaps better is 4...Bxb5 5.Nxb5 h6 gaining a tempo. <5.Bc4? e6> White is under the impression he can attack my "weakness" on f7, so I'm keeping him busy while I continue developing for a more deadly attack in the longer term. <6.d3 b5!> Locking up the bishop. <7.Bb3 Nc6 8.O-O Be7 9.a3 Nf6 10.Bg5 O-O 11.d4 Ne8!> A tricky move! Now Black has to capture on e7 or lose the d-pawn via 12...Bxg5 13.Nxg5 Nxd4! <12.Qd2?> This is an indequate way for White to defend g5, as will be shown in the following moves. <12...Nxd4! 13.Nxd4??> An even weaker move. Now White is down a piece. <13...Bxg5! 14.Qe2 cxd4> <15.Nd1 e5 16.Bd5 Ra7 17.Qf3 Nf6> Following the rule "when ahead in material, exchange as quickly as possible" <18.c3 Nxd5 19.exd5 Qf6 20.Qe4> Notice how little room for play White has. The knight on d1 is blocking the other pieces and it has nowhere to go itself. <20...Bf5 21.Qf3 e4 22.Qg3 Qh6!> Exposing the weakness on h2. The threat is now Bf4! <23.cxd4??> White now has to give up his queen or get mated. <23...Bf4! 24.Qxf4 Qxf4 25.Ne3 Qg5> threatening ...Bh3! <26.g3? Bh3 27.f4 exf3 28.Rxf3 Re7 29.Re1 Rfe8> White resigns 0-1

P.S.: My 5000th kibitz! :)
