Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-28-11  DeepFriedLiver: Moro is back! I'm a little surprised he missed 32...Rxf4+ with mate to follow shortly, but a win is a win.
Dec-28-11  Prudov: The Italian site (http://www.ippogrifoscacchi.it/torn...) now gives a different ending of this game, starting with 32. Rxa7+ Giri resigned on move 37.
Dec-28-11  capanegra: Right. The site gives 32.Rxa7+ Kxa7 33.Qa4+ Kb6 34.Qb4+ Ka6 35.Qa4+ Na5 36.Bf3 b5 (0-1) which is a more logical continuation. It makes no sense Moro missing 32…Rxf4+.

  Penguincw: < Prudov > <capanegra >

According to the site, you are correct but here's one of chessgames.com's' rules: < Do not post corrections in the "Kibitzer's Corner." If you do, and the game is later corrected, your comment will remain and be very confusing. >.

So just go to this page: Error Correction Form.

Dec-28-11  capanegra: Fine <Penguincw>, rules are rules. So, if the correction is made I ask <chessgames.com> in advance to delete my precious kibitzing, as well as this one.

In the meantime, it's good to keep other kibitzers well informed about the real conclusion of the game.

I wouldn't really call it a "rule". It's more of a suggestion because I've been reading some comments on cg, and some make no sense.

  al wazir: Why not 10. h5 ?
Dec-28-11  Pulse: <al wazir> At first I thought after 10. h5 comes Nxe5 11. dxe5 (hxg6 then Nxg6) Qxd1 and now: if 12. Nxd1 then Be4 hits the rook and the attached f6 knight can move after the rook moves. but then 12. Kxd1 then Be4 again then 13. Rh3 wins a piece.

So my guess is 10...Bd3. If 11. Bxd3 then Nxe5 and I think black has a good game. Else then 11. Nxd3 cxd3 12. Bxd3 (Qxd3 hangs the g4 pawn). Looks like black can play e5 or something then and he could have a good game.

Dec-28-11  ozmikey: <Pulse><So my guess is 10...Bd3. If 11. Bxd3 then Nxe5 and I think black has a good game.> Hardly, because after 12. dxe5 the knight on f6 is under attack and Black loses a piece (for a couple of pawns).

10...Nxe5 is the right reply, because after 11. dxe5 Qxd1+ 12. Kxd1 Nxg4, White's position falls apart.

I'm not convinced, because after <10. h5 Nxe5 11. dxe5 Qxd1+> 12. Nxd1 Nxg4 13. hxg6 fxg6 14. Bxc4, white has ♗ vs. ♙+♙.

  Robed.Bishop: <capanegra> Your continuation (which I guess now is more accurate) appeared as best play (as best as I recall) by the engine analysis while I was watching the game on Chessbomb.

The notation given here was also the notation provided at Chessbomb, but there was a transmission interruption at about move 32.

Dec-28-11  capanegra: While I was following the game online, my first thought was that Moro world break the centre from the Queen side with something like 19…c5. Instead, he broke from the King side with 20…f6! which proved to be much more effective.

Don't know if it is theory, but I didn't like the advance of White’s King side Pawns. After the exchanges on c3 and 15…Ba5 Black is already better. White's King is condemned to stay in the middle of the board with no significant threat on any side, and with Black's 0-0-0 at dispose a break though the centre was the logical choice.

Dec-28-11  russep: Is this the correct score for the game because chessvibes.com has a different score for this game and the one I see on chessvibes make more sense to me.

Dec-28-11  King Death: I don't remember the theory in this sideline of the Slav but it resembles another sideline, from the QGA (1.d4 d5 2.c4 dc 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.e3 Bg4 5.Bc4 e6 6. Nc3 a6 7.h3 Bh5 8.g4 Bg6). That line in the QGA looks maybe a little better than this for White though.
Dec-28-11  Rrrto2005: If 10.h5 Nxe5 11.dxe5 Qxd1+ 12.Nxd1 Be4 13.Rg1 black has a good game If 12.Kxd1 Ng4 wins for black
Dec-28-11  sanow: why it is different with this(on move 32)
http://reggioemilia2011.live.whyche...
Dec-28-11  Shams: <al wazir> In your line 13...Nxf2+ wins the Rh1.
Dec-29-11  Korifej: Hm...maybe Moro was lucky in first game against Caruana,but this one is masterpiece.
