Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-27-12  Oceanlake: Unless one is an attacking whiz, play against the isolated pawn.
Mar-27-12  RookFile: I'm sure this can't be a sound defensive system for black, but over the board, it must have been challenging to face.

  sofouuk: <RookFile>au contraire - rybka says white is already a bit worse after 10 Bg3 and goes slowly downhill all the way from there. black, in contrast, seems to have hardly put a piece wrong the whole game
Mar-27-12  Oceanlake: I think the Bishop should have gone to h4 and that White should have swapped Knights to get the d5 isolated pawn.

  Penguincw: With pawns still on the queenside, it is almost impossible to create a fortress.

  rilkefan: Stockfish suggests 15.Ne5 (a move I at least glanced at) with equality as better than Re1 because ...Rac8 gives black an advantage after transposing into the game line or 16.Qb3, -0.5 at a depth of 29. In the Ne5 line the knight goes to c4 (Nxd7 Qd5) and e3 and chases the black queen from a5 to d5. Presumably white wasn't looking for a perpetual, or even drawing lines, at this point.
