Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-03-03  drunknight II: More Dutch w/ Alekhine, Here is an interesting one w/ some no name guy. I dont know if this was a simul or what, but it seems that black is pretty good player. He creates an interesting pin on the N w/ Qd5 that proves to have a lasting effect.

Once again Alek. is enamored with the g4 attack, similar to the modern Krejik variation or something. There is something named after Korchnoi which is slower and uses h3/g4; that one produces fireworks.

Anyhow the pin on the N looks difficult. 14 f3 does not look right but I cant see anything better, assuming whites 14th move is sound, then where does he mess up?

One place to start would be to look at 16 Qb3 which just seems to break up his q side pawns. Since white is going to lose the f pawn anyway it seems, maybe we should assume that he will have to attack? It is an interesting test for theory. Perhaps then it would be better to look for an attack on the semi open g file thus: 16 a3 Bd7 17 Rg1 Bf5 18 Ng5 which looks fairly equal.

what about 19...gxf3? if white cannot meet this move, then surely there must be something wrong with his opening.
