Kibitzer's Corner
May-29-07  zanshin: Can someone explain again the problem with 12...Bxf3?
May-29-07  Whitehat1963: I can't quite see it all the way, but there has to be a mating threat with Bb5+, the knight able to move to d4 and the black knight on f6 pinned by the g5 bishop.
May-29-07  Ziggurat: 12...Bxf3 has been tried before, e.g.

Grischuk vs Bareev, 2004

D Jakovenko vs E L'Ami, 2007

May-29-07  Karpova: Susan Polgar thinks 39...Kd5 would have given white winning chances.
May-29-07  zanshin: <Ziggurat> Thanks for the examples. Apparently, the bishop fork does not give as much of an advantage as it would seem.
May-29-07  Wolfgang01: Maybe Evgeny made bad experiences 3 years ago?? Judit's coming back.
May-29-07  Whitehat1963: Oops, in my example above, I guess if 13. Bb5+, then black can always play Bc6 to block the check. Then after an exchange of bishops, the only thing white accomplishes is to isolate the b-pawn onto the c-file, gaining little compensation for the lost pawn. So, no mating attack, actually. But what about playing 13. Bb5+? Then black has to block via Bd7, right? Then 14. Bxf6 Bxb5 15. Nxb5 (threatening Nc7). What's best play from there?

  Maxim Dlugy: 12...Be6 is a rare, but very interesting move. Clearly Bareev felt that 13. Bb5,Nd7 14. Rhe1... didn't lead to much after 14...f6.
