Jan-15-06  Karpova: was 16.e4 good? i doubt it. black gained control over the c-file after that move. beliavsky should have doubled his rooks on the c-file and played something like nb1 na3 to get rid of a rook on c4

  alexmagnus: Naiditsch was lucky that Beliavsky didn't play 32.♕h4.
Jan-15-06  bob000: Why alex? I don't see the win/draw for Beliavsky after 32...Bxf1. The bishops cover immediate mate threats and black can run to the queenside a rook to the good against anything slower. If Rxe6 at any point the queen now covers the second rank for black.

  alexmagnus: i myself saw ♕h4 and ♕xg4+ but i couldnt find the killing ♖e6!
Jan-20-06  sharkbenjamin: alexmagnus great notation on 32.Qh4!
Jan-20-06  delterp: <Karpova>, at first I thought e4 was a fair move, but after a bit of thought, I think you are right that it is questionable. But for a different reason. At move 16, white's advantage lies in black's awful a6 bishop. If white can keep it bad, then he will be defacto a piece up. Rather than the dull doubling on the c file, I would have played 16 ♗e5 intending to get rid of the f6 knight and then swing my own knight to c5. Any attempt to get rid of him creates a mighty passed pawn. And the pawn on d4 can be protected by the simple e3.
