Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-28-14  MelvinDoucet: the best defense was 37... ♕e7, the bishop having to guard e5 against the white knight (houdini); needless to say black was lost in any case :(
Jan-28-14  srinidhi88: 13. ..Nd8 is suspicious, thinking back to Karpov vs Unzicker, that move was heavily punished there too. Nb8 is far more popular for a reason. Atleast, black didn't close the queen side with c4, so that was good. In return, he had an exposed weakness on d6 which white attacked well and finished the game.
Jan-29-14  Ulhumbrus: 25...Rfc8 seems inconsistent. 25...f4 begins a king side pawn storm

27 g4 is an attack on h7, attacking the f5 pawn which obstructs White's king's bishop, but is it sound? Instead of 27...Qd8, 27...Ng5 does something useful with the N on f7.
