|Feb-09-13|| ||Strongest Force: 22..Ng7 makes me wonder if somebody slipped something in the youngsters' drink.|
|Feb-09-13|| ||Strongest Force: Make that Nh7|
|Feb-09-13|| ||luzhin: Actually Nyzhnyk's attack was rather brilliant, if not totally sound. Indeed if he had played 33...g2+ he might well have won. The point is that after 34.Kf2 Be1+! wins and after 34.Ke2 Qxg1 35.Bc2 Qa7 36.Rg1 Bf4 with the threat Bh2, White is struggling.|
|Feb-09-13|| ||Strongest Force: If Nyzhnyk had a chance to win after Nh7 its because white played like a putz. Anyhow, I turned away after Nh7.|
|Feb-09-13|| ||luzhin: Well, if you turned away after 22...Nh7 then it's hard for you to understand what was going on after that.|
|Feb-09-13|| ||Strongest Force: I didn't want to know. The thrill was gone.|
|Feb-09-13|| ||Shams: I don't understand why <22...Nh7> provokes such a reaction. With the center closed, potentially rerouting the knight to g5 seems like a natural idea. But <Strongest Force> knows more KID theory I do, certainly.|
|Feb-09-13|| ||Strongest Force: I dont have the time nor desire for this game.|
|Feb-10-13|| ||luzhin: I don't mean to be rude, but why bother commenting on it in the first place if you're not interested and "don't want to know"?|

I wonder if black could still go for a similar position in the game with 34...Qxg1 35.Kxd2 Qf2+ with 37...g2 and 38...Rg3 as follow up moves.
Of course Nyzhnyk has invested already 2 pieces so an attack better be succesful and he is lacking one tempo in that line, but it looks a bit more active and faster than his plan with doubling the rook and the f-file
|Feb-10-13|| ||Refused: Ah, ok to answer my own question, the tempo makes all the difference, since white is just in time to answer 36...g2 with 37.Qe3
Ok, that makes me a sad panda. :/|
|Feb-10-13|| ||whiteshark: It seems that <31.f4!> would have refuted the desperate black attack after <30...Ng5>. |

|Feb-10-13|| ||luzhin: I think that's right, whiteshark; but one can hardly blame Black for missing a move like 31.f4! back when he played 22...Nh7. As shams points out, the idea Nf6-h7-g5 is a standard attacking ploy in such KID positions, although here it was not completely sound.|
|Feb-10-13|| ||Resool Uut: 22...b5 is a funny shocker|
|Feb-10-13|| ||Strongest Force: Luzhin: "why bother?"
Because I am a mean bad guy.
