Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-17-11  sevenseaman: Neatly cutting a swathe through a plethora of defenders. An oasis for those with an eye for puzzles.
Sep-17-11  Nullifidian: I love this game. Ostensibly, it looks like Black has a great game in front of him after 15... ♙fxg5 but really it's the start of a forced mate. There are several variations, but the one I worked through ends up with the bishop helplessly fluttering between two squares and the unlucky king surrounded by his own pieces.

16. ♖e3! ♔e8 17. ♖ae1 ♗f8 18. ♖f3 ♗g7 19. ♖f7 ♗f8 20. ♖xh7! ♖xh7 21. ♕xg6+ ♖f7

22. ♕/♗xf7#

Sep-17-11  ounos: Surprizingly hard to pick a better 11th move for black. I wonder if he was already lost by then

  ajk68: I'm not sure what white has after 11...e6. Yes the e6 pawn is pinned, but I'm not seeing any threats either.
Sep-17-11  AGOJ: After 11...e6 I would aim at c7 with 12.Bf4.
Sep-17-11  scormus: At move 11 B's position looks terrible, depite the 2 pawns. I do not see any imediately winning threats, but W can continue developing with tempo (12 Bd2 and 13 Rc1). 11 ... Kf8 looks a bit desperate, so I would have thought ... d6 and try to organise his forces to defend against the coming onslaught.

Checking with Rybka it prefers ... d6 over ... Kf8, either way a clear adv to W though no immediate win

  whiteshark: <9...Bxe5> would have been the best move.

Sep-17-11  scholes: Do you guys use critter 1.2 or houdini 1.5. They are free and stronger than rybka

  whiteshark: Here is one possible and partly forced line after <9...Bxe5:

<10. Nb5! a6 11.Qd5 axb5 12.Qxf7+ Kd8

<13.Qf8+ Kc7 14.Bxg8 Kb8>>>

with the upcoming question where to put ♗c1?


Sep-17-11  Ratt Boy: <whiteshark>, after 13.♕f8+ ♔c7 14.♗xg8 ♔b8, I like 15.♗f4, b4 16.♕g7 or 15...♗xf4 16.♕xf4+, d6 17.♕f8 and 18.♕g7, picking up the exchange. The poor Black ♕ isn't participating over there at a5; matter of fact, neither are the ♖ at a8 and the ♗ at c8.

Sep-17-11  Gambitbuster: Why to bring out your queen so early in the game?
Sep-17-11  transpo: After 5.Nf3 g6?! Much better are 5...d6 or 5...e6 These are two very different defenses, but far superior to g6.
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: White will mate next more regardless...(or irregardless)
Premium Chessgames Member
  playground player: Gee, that worked a lot better than my last Smith-Morra try. Play 1.b4 and forget all about the Sicilian.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <Ratt Boy: <After 13.Qf8+ Kc7 14.Bxg8 Kb8, I like 15. Bf4 Bxf4 16.Qxf4+, d6 17.Qf8 and 18.Qg7, picking up the exchange.>>

Unfortunately there is <16...Qc7 17.Qf8 Qc4!> which almost equalizes

Sep-18-11  meppi: black capturing the e pawn only created open lines which is what white wants by playing the gambit. psychologically you must try for complications to defeat the gambit! See user: "transpo" 4 above comment on viable alternatives for a stronger game. g6 is is slower and weaken f6 square which means that a e6 (defending f7 square from whites bishop on c4) is out of the question in many variations afterward as f6 is now dangerously weak with both g6 and e6.
Sep-03-12  Sebastian88: 13.Nxe7 Amazing move!
Oct-11-12  billyhan: Boy,,. how I wish people's last names were permitted in Scrabble.
