Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-07-07  Alphalegacy: nice maneuvering
Apr-07-07  think: So black resigned because there is no way to stop Rh3 and then Qxh7?
Apr-07-07  hellstrafer: Black can play f5 to prevent checkmate but it leads to huge loss of material.
Apr-07-07  Atking: 25. ...Kg7 (Then eventually h6 (Bg5/Rh8))to stop Qf4~Qh6 was better.

  fm avari viraf: I think Fier didn't anticipate Diego's Qf6 & Rh3 combo. Had he, then he would tried something like f5 or Kg7 as suggested by<hellstrafer & Atking>
Apr-07-07  syracrophy: Black's last two moves are simply horrible. They're looking for an attack in the queenside, when all the attack of White is against the kingside. An example that shows that one has to be cautious of all the opponent's "mysterious" moves
Apr-07-07  Andreiko: What you think about 23.Tf3;
i think that the change in b4 is not necessary...
Please answere...
Apr-07-07  black knight c6: Weird thinking by black: 'Hmm, white's attacking my king, so... I'll attack his queenside pawns.' Not my impression of how your supposed to fight a sicilian. Maybe black was hoping white would just move his king on over to the queenside...

Also notice how black mainly manouvered on the flank, while white was incorporating centre control throughout his attack. This led to white winning as basically you can rarely do anything without some control of the centre, and black basically had none of it by the end of the game. Nice play by Berardino.

  kevin86: Black has so staked his game on his queenside attack that he forgot to defend his king or even to allow himself a path to escape. White will punish such malfeasence with a quick mate.

At least black had the sense to resign.

May-03-07  black knight c6: Also note how influencial the e5 pawn was.
