Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-26-07  Karpova: Kmoch dislikes 13.Nd5 and gives 13...e5! instead with the suggestion 13...e5 14.fxe5 Ng4 with perhaps the following continuation: 15.Ne4 Bxe3+ 16.Bxe3 Nxe3 17.Rac1 (<it's indeed written 17.QR-QB1>) 17...Nxc4 18.Rxc4 Be6 and 19.Rxc6?? Bd4! It's not clear why white should give away the exchange and black decline (<17...Nxd1 18.Rxd1 Be6 black looks fine to me). 17.Rdc1 Nxc4 18.Rxc4 Be6 19.Rd4 and the position is even. But taking the pawn on move 14 doesn't look too inviting for white and 13...e5 14.Na4 is nice

33....Rc6? is a mistake in an already worse position. After 34.Bb5 black can't save the exchange (34...Rc7? 35.Ne8+). That's why Kmoch suggests 31...Kf8 instead of 31...Kg7
