Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-23-05  Knight13: 14. Nbd2? is a mistake. I mean why did he play that? Did Black have a threat or he just missed the ...Bxf2+! by accident?

I don't like 26... Rc4?. The best move would've been 26... Qe7.

35... Rxd4 is forced because White is threating 36. Rxe6+. After 35... Rxd4 36. cxd4 O-O, White is two pawns up, thus, Black resigns.

May-30-07  melv: Black should give back the exchange on move 20 and be up 4 pawns.
May-30-07  skiskichess5: ... after Rxh3+, Fritz suggests white to exchange queens after which simplification white appears to have little chance. This was before Capablanca so perhaps it was considered ungentlemanly then for black to give back the exchange.

  Jonathan Sarfati: Notice that Captain Kennedy showed the correct course that Salwe missed decades later in the famous game Nimzowitsch vs Salwe, 1911 8... a5 is essential to prevent 9.b4. Compare J Pokojowczyk vs Ivkov, 1971
Jul-17-20  Walruspuppy: Rather than 22...fxg5, which opens a huge hole in the black position, how about g5 instead? Performs the same function of attacking the bishop and providing an escape path for the queen.
