Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-21-06  Chess Classics: At first I thought that 17...g4? was the losing move. But can't black survive after 18...Nf6 19. Ne5 Nh5 20. Qh2 g3 or something like that?


Jun-22-06  DhalvalVyas: Why this opening Richter-Veresov Attack is so little played at the GM level?

I like it a lot.

Jun-22-06  Stevens: <DhalvalVyas> i'm not sure. I saw this opening today too as the Chesscafe feature Novice Nook (recommended reading each month by the way) has a game with it. I like the look of it too, even though i'm strictly a 1.e4 player. The thing that appeals is that whatever blacks response is to 1.d4, you can get to the same position and therefore be more familiar with the resulting positions. ie 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.Bg5 or 1.d4 d5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.Bg5

The losing move was 6...Bb4?? losing his bishop at f5 without compensation.

What's your alternative? If 6...Bg4, 7.Bxf6! leaves White a piece up. Ditto for 6...Bg6 7.e5 h6 8.Bh4! (alas, Black can't play the normal ...g5) Bh5 9.Bxf6. And of course, if 6...Bxe4, 7.Nxe4 or 7.Bxf6 wins. I fell into this in an Internet blitz game a few months ago, though I managed to win anyway.
