Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-01-04  Whitehat1963: How does Crafty evaluate 14...Bxf3?
Mar-01-04  Whitehat1963: O.K., after analyzing with my computer, it gives 14...Bxf3 as dangerous for black because of 15. exd6+, 15... Kd7, 16. dxc5, Kc8 17. Qf4 and everything starts falling apart. On the other hand, it offers the following as leading to equality: 11...cxd4 12. Qxd4, dxe5 13. Qxe5, Qd6 14. Rd1, Qxe5+ 15. Nxe5, a6 16. Bxc6+, bxc6 17. Ne2, Ng2+. What does Crafty, Junior or Fritz have to say?
Mar-02-04  Whitehat1963: But if 11...cxd4, why wouldn't white follow with Qxf4?
Mar-02-04  Whitehat1963: Crafty, Junior, Fritz? What's the take on 11...cxd4? Does it lead the way my computer said above, toward equality?
Mar-02-04  Lawrence: Whitehat1963, Fritz says equality, Crafty say White has +0.87, and Junior says White has +0.96. 12.Qxf4 is inferior to the 12.Qxd4 that you show.
Mar-02-04  Whitehat1963: Lawrence, thanks.
