Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-07-16  Atking: What is the trick on 8...Nxe4?
Aug-07-16  me to play: I don't think there is an immediate tactical "trick". Probably after something like 9.Be3 and maybe 10.c4 the good white knight on d5 and the lead in development is compensation for the pawn.
Aug-08-16  Ulhumbrus: After 22..Rd8 Black's king is stuck in the centre. Can White play the sacrifice 23 Nxg6 followed by 24 f7+ in reply to 23...fxg6? If the sacrifice is not the best choice if played immediately but can be improved by delaying it until White has developed a few more pieces towards the attack first this suggests 23 Bg5 followed by eg 24 Rae1 or 24 Rf3 and 25 Raf1 and only after that Nxg6.

  SirRuthless: I don't think it's so simple to prepared that sac. Black has ideas like Qd7 and H5 in the position preparing Rh6. Black might not even have to take on g6 immediately allowing f7 push.
