Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-23-06  micartouse: The mainline is 10. Bd3, and White has a small advantage because of his two bishops and better pawn structure.

Here Richter plays to win the isolated pawn immediately and gets burned. Black wins 3 free tempi - enough to complete development and begin attacking.

Feb-27-09  ToTheDeath: Horrible pawn grab. White has some survival chances with 16.O-O Bf5 17.Bd1 .
Mar-18-18  RKnight: 18...Nb3! is a truly amazing move. White resigned because there is no defense. If 20 cxb3 Qc1#. If 20 Ke1 Qxd2+, 21 Kf1 Rxe2, 22 Nxe2 Qd1+. A nice Tues or Wed puzzle.
