14. b4 ??!!

I expect a lot better from an FM with 2300+ ELO.

Jul-04-11  Jazzer32: beautiful mate
Jul-04-11  cjgone: amazing mate!

Games Like A Getz vs Adams, 2011

One could expect better from a poster who can click "similar games." I guess, Carlsen, Kramnik and Aronian don't know what they are doing.

I'm not sure about 14.b4 but in the game Adams came under heavy pressure from white's two bishops and a rook lift to a3, while his two knights were sharing tea on the q-side, and b4 was part of luring them there.

Jul-05-11  msoewulff: great mate!
Jul-05-11  Bobsterman3000: <I guess, Carlsen, Kramnik and Aronian don't know what they are doing.>

Yes, I understand that some Super-GM's play 6. d5 here regularly but the text moves aren't always the best when there's a 400-point ELO differential.

Jul-05-11  venk003: Why is 6.d5 a blunder?

As far as I can see, after 6...exd5
7.cxd5 Nxf5
8.Qe4+

The next few moves are pretty clear, and white will win.

Quite true, not to mention those instances when one doesn't understand the ideas behind the line chosen, even if considerably stronger than one's opponent.

<Yes, I understand that some Super-GM's play 6. d5 here regularly but the text moves aren't always the best when there's a 400-point ELO differential.>

This is a well known idea, to sac a pawn and play against the backward d-pawn on the half-open file. Even Petrosian played similarly.

Basically, I feel kibitzers are not one to judge such decisions. They can do so, by all means, but this also allows statements like <I expect better from an FM> to come off as unnecessarily negative, self-serving and, in this case, simply wrong.

  parmetd: Still I rather suspect 14. b4 had some sort of miscalculation attached to it. The move doesn't make alot of sense.
Jul-06-11  ReikiMaster: 14.Bf4 looks ok.
Jul-06-11  jmboutiere: 14.Bf4 - 0.36 Rybka 3
14.b4 - 0.59
16.Qb3 - 0.57 16.Qb1 - 0.68
17.Nd4 - 0.55 17.Be3 - 1.08
23.Bd2 - 1.25 23.Bd4 - 2.09
34.Db1 - 2.67 34.Qb6 - 4.84
Jul-30-11  Rama: I didn't like 8. d5 ..., either, for the same reason I disliked 13. e4 .... They block the action of the Bg2. But then, white's Nf3 never had any good squares to go to, which shows the depth of black's planning.

Great mate!
