Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-10-14  Karpova: The annotator says that 6.exf6 was forced (in case of <6.Nf3 Nc6>, White would have to take on f6 anyway). It was not taken into account that White doesn't necessarily need to save the ♙e5, in its stead he could increase the pressure on the ♙d4. E. g. 6.Nf3 Nc6 7.a3 (6.a3 is also interesting) 7...a5 and then possibly 8.Nbd2 9.Nb3. The resource Qh5+, possible thanks to 5...f6, should not be forgotten, when evaluating the strength/weakness of e5.

10...Re8 is a surprising move and I'm not sure if it's good. It's not annotated. But 10...Ng4 looks like an alternative worth a look.

The annotator suggests <12.Ng5> instead of 12.Re1.

The Black attack, beginning with 12...Bf5, looks very fine. White may have tried 15.Bxh7+ to drive away the ♕ (15...Kxh7 16.Qxd3+ wins the ♕) 15...Qxh7 16.h3 and the position remains very complex, although still possibly lost for White.
