Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-09-05  tempi2burn: Lebedev engages his pieces to quickly with 8. Nf4. His king is at least two moves from castling on either side and his bishop at g5 leaves room for attack which most likely would leave the king exposed.
Jan-10-05  Milo: With a little hindsight, 20.Qe6 might give better practical chances, although black should still have an advantage, I imagine.
Jan-10-05  Shams: I sure didn`t see that 24.Rxc2 would cost white his knight. maybe 24.Nc4 was a better try?

<maybe 24.Nc4 was a better try?> Then at least Black has 24. Nc4 Bxf4 25. exf4 Rxf2 25. Nd2 Bxf3, picking up two more pawns.

  Phony Benoni: Napier once wrote that "Some of Marshall's most sparkling moves look at first like typographical errors."

In this game, 22...Rc2 looks like a mouseslip at first glance!

  Calli: Anything wrong with 18.Nxd3? 18.Nxd3+ 19.Bxd3 Bxg2 20.Bb5 Bc6 21.Bxc6 Qxc6 22.Rg1 looks okay
