Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-26-07  Karpova: Kmoch:
9...dxc4 10.Ne4! (10.Bxc4? Nxe5! 11.fxe5 Qh4+)

Kmoch doesn't like 26...h6 and suggests 26...b5 instead: 26...b5 27.Qe1 Nb6 28.Qh4 f6 29.g5 Rxd6 30.Rf1 but this is bad for white after 30...Na4 27.Qe3 instead looks good (27...Nb6 fails due to 28.Ba3 (28...Nc4 29.Qxc5))

33.Bf2 would be a mistake: 33...Qd3! 34.Bxe4 Bxe4 35.Qe2 Bc6! to threaten 36....Qf3 i.e. after 36.Qxe5

Mar-28-09  notyetagm: SOS 5:
May-04-17  Count von Twothree: 27...Nf6 is simply a blunder in time trouble. Instead 27...Qa4 and Black has decent drawing chances.
Oct-22-17  Count von Twothree: Actually, a move earlier, Kmoch was right not to like 26...h6. If Vidmar had played 26...c4 instead, it looks quite likely that he would have held the advantage.
