Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-04-06  schattke: Move 9 is horrible for white.
Taking the pawn with the knight Kxf4 is much better. It preserve the castle for later, protects the vulnerable pawn fork on c2 and pressures blacks release of the white bishop.
Nov-05-06  Karpova: <schattke: Move 9 is horrible for white. Taking the pawn with the knight Kxf4 is much better. It preserve the castle for later, protects the vulnerable pawn fork on c2 and pressures blacks release of the white bishop.>

9.Nd4: c5 with Nc2:+ following for black (10.Nf5 would lose the knight after Bf5:)

Nov-05-06  cuendillar: Don't dismiss it out of hand. It's not hopeless after 9.Nxd6 c5 10.c3 since 10...cxd4 11.bxd4 Qxb4+ 12.Kf2 gives black nothing but the pawn in return. I see no clear refutation of it.

If black puts something on g4, responding to the threat and then play h3 should suffice to keep white safe.
