Kibitzer's Corner
May-17-05  Bobak Zahmat: Superb game! Grishuk is really the king of King's Gambit!
Aug-17-05  alexandrovm: Is he really? How is his score as black against king gambit?
Sep-12-07  dotty hill: Can somebody please explain why white gave up in this position? I see that white is in a very bad position but I don't see why it should be that bad.
Sep-12-07  syracrophy: The threat now is 13...♗xg4 and 14...♕e3#. I don't see any defense to that
Sep-12-07  dotty hill: This doesn't work because the white queen takes the bishop with a check:

13. Bd3 Bxg4 14. Qxg4+ Kh8 15. Be4 and now what?

Sep-12-07  dotty hill: In my line 15. Ne2 is probably slightly better. I agree that white is in deep trouble, but I wouldn't resign, yet. Thanks anyway, <syracrophy>.
Oct-06-07  mrjones: After 13. Bd3, f3 looks strong.
Aug-31-08  lostthefight: <dotty hill> Yes. White is in deep trouble. After 15. Be4 black plays Nxe4 16. Nxe4 Qxe4. White is now down a piece with an exposed king and black has several attacking options. 15. Ne2 is no better from the standpoint of winning the game. Black plays Nxe2 16. Qxe2 Qe3+ 17. Qxe3 fxe3+ 18. Ke2 Bxh2 and white is in a similarly hopeless position.

Rather than 13. Bd3, try 13. Bb5. It gives white better counterplay, but against a competent player you would be toast either way.

  plang: According to this database 9..0-0 has not been played since the 19th century! 10 Nxg4? lost quickly though a viable alternative is not easy to find; ie. 10 Ne4..Re8 11 0-0..Bxe5 12 dxe..Rxe5 13 Qd4..Nc6 is strong for Black.
