Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-07-10  SamAtoms1980: This is the second game featured in the book "How to Think Ahead in Chess" by Fred Reinfeld and I. A. Horowitz, in which they promote the Stonewall Attack. A brilliancy of attack execution by Kujoth, even if in the 21st century the Stonewall Attack wouldn't work anywhere above the CM level.

The authors call out 4 ... Nbd7 and 6 ... cxd4 as errors, but Black is actually OK; not until 9 ... Nxe5? does he get in trouble (best was probably 9 ... Bb7).

With either 12 ... O-O or 13 ... O-O, Crittenden would have to defend an imposing attack but his position would be survivable (12 ... O-O 13 Qh5 h6 14 Nf3 Ba6! or 12 ... O-O 13 Qh5 g6 14 Qh6 Bg5! or 13 ... O-O 14 Nf3 f5!). After 14 Nc4, 14 ... Be7 15 Nd6+ Bxd6 16 exd6 would give Black a lost game, but he could still put up a fight and force White to convert an endgame. After 15 Bxg5 it was all over.
