Jul-30-08  Bob726: No kibitzing on this game? It's a great attacking game from black. 18. Nxd4! This could be a Wendensday/Thursday puzzle after move 18
Jul-08-11  Sem: Indeed a fine game.
May-24-16  clement41: I'm surprised indeed there's virtually no kibitzing on this fierce French

  fredthebear: Pins are a powerful tool in chess. So are connected rooks (although the White Rb1 has not lifted because it is tied to the defense of Ra1). Black penetrates three heavy pieces into the White camp, demonstrating why kings usually castle to avoid being caught up in the resulting battle for central control. Royalty makes for a weak defender because s/he must flee most threats by a lesser unit, abandoning post. After the White queen is captured in the final position, Black likely plays Qxe5 safely.

  fredthebear: The twelfth move is a key turning point of this game, according to Vladimir Vuckovic/John Nunn in The Art of Attack in Chess p. 36.

12.Rhb1? is a poor move. Both 12.Rab1 and 12.Qf4 give White a slight advantage.

Black is complimented for bringing his heavy pieces to the c-file to prepare his attack instead of playing for "unfruitful" checks with 12...cxd4? 13.cxd4 Qa5+ etc. Black waits until 17...cxd4 18.cxd4 Nxd4! with a "well-prepared attack on the king"...
