Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-14-04  azaris: Holding on to the pawn with 5...Bd7(?) doesn't seem to be all that popular and I might have discovered the reason why.

[White "azaris"]
[Black "teva"]
[Result "1-0"]

1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Nf3 dxc4 5. a4 Bd7 6. e4 b5 7. axb5 cxb5 8. e5 Ng8 9. Ng5 f6 10. Qf3 Nc6 11. e6 Nxd4 12. exd7+ Kxd7 13. Qe4 Nb3 14. Ra6 Qc8 15. Qd5+ Ke8 16. Qxb5+ Qd7 17. Qxd7+ Kxd7 18. Nf7 Nxc1 19. Bxc4 Rc8 20. Rxa7+ Ke8 21. Be6 Rb8

White to play and mate in 4.

Nov-16-05  Dudley: Lets see now, would that be 22.Nd5 Rc8 23.Nc7+ RxN 24.Ra8+ Rc8 25. RxR# ? Good game- I play the QG also and have made a special point out of learning how to punish those feckless materialists who insist on trying to hold the gambit pawn. Well done.
