Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-05-10  pulsar: Black went pawn-grabbing and was severely punished for it. 16...Nd7 might be better.

If 16...Nd7, then 17.Bxg6.

10 ... ♕b6-d8

Black has just played 10 ... ♕b6-d8, apparently threatening to win a piece by the <REMOVAL OF THE GUARD> tactic 11 ... ♗g4x♘f3 12 g2x♗f3 ♕d8x♗d4. But is this tactical idea really a threat?

11 0-0-0!

Ho hum. Karjakin (White) says no, it's not and just castles long.

11 ... ♗g4x♘f3

Just <REMOVING THE GUARD> of the White d4-bishop, right?

12 ♗d4x♘f6

<Wrong! <<<FORCING MOVES SHOW YOU WHERE THE PIECES *REALLY* ARE, NOT WHERE THEY ONLY *APPEAR* TO BE !>>>. Forcing moves are <CHECKS>, <CAPTURES>, and <THREATS>. Because the White d4-bishop can <<<CAPTURE>>> the Black f6-knight, the White d4-bishop therefore has a <FORCING MOVE>, which means that it only <<<*APPEARS*>>> to be on the d4-square. This dark-squared White bishop is <<<*ACTUALLY*>>> on the f6-square, where it has just <CAPTURED> the Black f6-knight and threatens the Black d8-queen.>

So, in summary, 11 ... ♗g4x♘f3 does *not(!)* in fact <REMOVE THE GUARD> of the White d4-bishop because the White d4-bishop only <*APPEARS*> to be on d4. Since it is <*ACTUALLY*> on the f6-square, because it has the <FORCING MOVE> 12 ♗d4x♘f6, 11 ... ♗g4x♘f3 does not <REMOVE ITS GUARD>.

Apr-06-10  pulsar: <shalgo: <16...Nd7 might be better.> If 16...Nd7, then 17.Bxg6.> After 17...0-0-0 I think Black's position is better than what transpired in the game.
Apr-06-10  ounos: <because the White d4-bishop only <*APPEARS*> to be on d4> lol! And you only <appear> to make a point... :D

After 16...Nd7 17.Bxg6 0-0-0 18.Bf5 it still looks pretty grim for Black, I think.
