Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-08-05  MidnightDuffer: Speaking of sacs, here is a game, where even Uhlmann in the French, King's Indian Attack by White gets into trouble rapidly;
Feb-08-05  aw1988: 14...a4??
Jul-22-05  notyetagm: See Rublevsky vs E Vorobiov, 2003 for the exact same winning combination.
Aug-06-05  rangarajachary: whats the ending?
Aug-06-05  hippatxu: <rangarajachary> after 15...fxe6 16.♕xe6+ and 17.♕xc6 white is 2 pawns up with a better position (pawn on e5 roolz).
Jan-22-07  sahmattr: 15... fxe6 16-Qxe6+ Kh8 17-Qxc6... it is a loss for black
Jan-22-07  Shams: boner move by Uhlmann...he must have been hitting the Lowenbrau a little hard the previous night.

how does white prosecute things after 14...Bd8 <?>

  hesyrett: Actually, Bronstein's 14. ♕g4 looks questionable.  Uhlmann could have played 14...♘d4 Δ 15...♘xc2, or as suggested by <Shams>, 14...♗d8 leaving that threat in the air.  The White ♕ has left c2 unguarded and is in the way of the thematic ♘f1-h2-g4.
May-17-08  hamham: Can I ask something really stupid? Why doesn't black play 13. h6, for what reason? If my opponnent plays that, what should my response be and why? Thnx for any comments.

I played a KIA game today without knowing any theory. And looking at all the GM games, I played it all the right moves (only losing after making an unsound sac).

May-17-08  Ziggurat: <hamham> My guess would be that black did not play 13...h6 because he didn't want to weaken the pawn structure in front of his king. (The g6 square gets weakened, and the h6 pawn itself may become a target of attack.) I think white can respond by either 14. Nf3 or 14. Nh3. 14. Nxe6 does not seem to work here.

  FSR: Yes, I think Uhlmann was afraid of 13...h6 14.Nh3, perhaps followed by Nh2, Qh5, Ng4 and Black will have to worry about a sac on h6.
Mar-28-11  Everett: <hesyrett: Actually, Bronstein's 14. g4 looks questionable.  Uhlmann could have played 14...d4 15...xc2, or as suggested by <Shams>, 14...d8 leaving that threat in the air.  The White has left c2 unguarded and is in the way of the thematic f1-h2-g4.>

At first glance, after 14..Nd4 15.Ne3 white is fine and still on the attack.

Jan-05-17  Swedish Logician: Half a year later at Amsterdam, Walter Browne, Browne vs Uhlmann, 1972, deviated from 14. Qg4 against Uhlmann. He must have suspected an improvement for Black. Larsen once wrote that it is very important to seek and find improvements for the losing side in a well-known game, and who better to dao so than the loser?
