Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-14-04  Checkmate123: great endgame by black.
Apr-03-04  PaulKeres: I played a game exactly the same upto 8...Bg4, where I (who was Black) played 8...Nf6. I also won.

But is the exachange such a bad choice for white? Is <5. Nxe5 ?!> ? Is there anyone out there who likes playing C68 as white?

Apr-03-04  iron maiden: I think it's a bad choice, handing Black the initiative. I always castle on move 5 so Black is forced to protect the e-pawn with Bd6, and then I play 6. d4.

  tpstar: 16 ... Bb4!? set the trap 17. Nxg7?! Bg6 threatening 18 ... Rg8 19. Ne6 Re8. If 18. Kf1 Kd7 19. Nf3 Rg8 20. Bh6 Bf8 21. Ne5+ Ke7 22. Bg5+ Nf6 wins a piece. Better is 18. c3 Bd6 (18 ... Nxc3!? 19. a3! Ba5? 20. Nc4, or 19 ... Bf8 20. Ne6) 19. Ne4 Rg8 20. Ne6 Re8 21. N6g5 Nf4 swiping back a Pawn (22. Bxf4 Bxf4 23. Kf1 h6). Any improvements here?

  tpstar: I believe the following is a good continuation against the Ruy Lopez Exchange with 5. Nxe5 = ... 0-0-0, then trade on f3 creating doubled Pawns, then attack on the Kingside before White has time to develop and defend.

Mar-18-05  d4Nf6Bg5: It appears that beynon is one of the few in the database that was never told the elementary fact that Nxe5 is not good for white. Nice of him to try it though.
