Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-19-06  woodenbishop: I'm sure Evans walked away from this game feeling cheated of a win.
Feb-19-06  suenteus po 147: <woodenbishop> Perhaps. Evans had to be questioning what Bisguier sacs and kingside demolition were about, though. There's something to be said for lessons of caution in attacking games.
Feb-19-06  Caissanist: I don't see a win for Evans at any point in this game, probablyhe's already busted by the time of the knight sac. 10...f5 looks bad to me, after that Bisguier pretty much has everything his way.
Mar-03-14  jerseybob: I think black could've postponed 0-0 for at least one more move, say with 7..Nbd7 or may 7..c5 right away, to see where white's king will live. White in that case may decide not to castle long, but operate on the c-file starting with cd. Bisguier just had Evans' number at this point in their careers, though that would eventually change.
Mar-04-14  RookFile: White's attack is stronger than it appears. For example, after 20. Rde1 Qf7, white plays 21. g6! However, 16.....Bxf4 appears to give black chances for an equal game.
Mar-05-14  jerseybob: I'll definitely go with 16..Bf4 also. Evans' 16..h6? is naive to the extreme; did he actually think white would withdraw the knight?
Mar-05-14  RookFile: I think that Evans figured he was going to suffer, and might as well have something to show for it, in case white made a mistake.
Mar-05-14  jerseybob: Right, but that motif of propping up a piece on g5(or g4) with the h-pawn to open the h-file is as old as the hills.
