Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-21-07  CapablancaFan: Well, what do you guys want me to say about this game? I mean, when your king is on the 5th rank by move 11, you know something has gone horribly wrong. After 16.Re1 white has no less than 3 different ways to dash off black. How many times must this be said, in the opening your king bishop pawn is vulnerable...protect it!
Aug-21-07  Guguni: 13... de looks more logical for the black. Although the white's attack of course is still very strong.
Aug-21-07  dumbgai: I agree with <Guguni>. After 13... d4, black is toast. His king is in the middle of the board and his pieces are doing nothing. And for the miserable position he doesn't even have any extra material.
Aug-21-07  psmith: <Guguni> <dumbgai>: 13... dxe4 14. Qf4+ Ke6 15. Qxe4+ and 16. Qxa8

Aug-21-07  myteacher34: 6..Nxd4?? it removes the protection of e5 pawn
Aug-21-07  psmith: <al wazir> 13...dxe4 14. Qf4+ Kd5 15. Be3 Qe7 16. 0-0-0+ Kc6 holds, but 15. Qd2+ and Qxd8 wins.
Aug-21-07  pawnofdoom: Woah. Who knew a simple move like Nxd4 lost the game. In the midst of all this action white actually had the time to castle!

  kevin86: An odd final position:white threatens to win the queen in two different ways by two different pieces

17 ♘xc5+ ♔d6 18 ♘xb7+ with a fork

17 ♗f4+ ♔f5 (to avoid a deadly double check) 18 ♗c7+ a discovered check and an attack on the queen

  playground player: For a guy whose King was wandering around alone in the middle of the board, Black made a good fight of it.
Aug-21-07  firmamentalfalcon: <17 Bf4+ Kf5 (to avoid a deadly double check)>

The deadly double check is actually a deadly single check 18. Nd6+, I believe.

  al wazir: <psmith: 13...dxe4 14. Qf4+ Kd5 15. Qd2+ and Qxd8 wins.> Right. How did I miss that?
Aug-22-12  Cemoblanca: The Whyld mixed up the Queen with the King! ;0)
