Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-10-04  Taidanii: 34. Rfxc4 was horrible he loses material AND helps black strengthen the pawn structure. Someone clarify the choice here.
Jan-10-04  bilikidder: OK, look carefully at the position that arises after 33…Nc4. By making this move, Black has launched two attacks. His N is threatening the white Q and the black Q is threatening Rf4. Rf4 is defended only by the Qd2 and not by pawn g3 (do you see why?). White is stuck with a problem because his Q cannot defend the R because the black N is guarding e3 as well. The Q cannot go to d4 either (do you see why?). White does not want to lose his Q or his R for free. So the best move in this bad situation for White is to play 34. RfxN, removing the N that is attacking his Q (because he would have lost his R anyway).

The last time I gave you advice: Leko vs Kasparov, 2003 , I sensed you were frustrated because you didn’t see the answer. My advice is for you to look carefully at a position and try to assess the threats that either side may have (pins, forks, attacks, etc.).
