Jan-16-13  Garech: Superb game from Gelfand!


Jan-16-13  fokers13: 8..h6 is dubious at best with exd5 providing equality instead.

Makes you wonder why white didn't just take it.

  gregory2188: I think after 9.Bxh6, Nxe4 &Qh4+ is good for black.
Jan-19-13  fokers13: If you look into it a little longer after g3 Qxh6 Qxh6 Bxh6 Nb5 a pawn still falls thanks to the double threat of Nc7 and Nxd6.

So i'm afraid that just won't cut it.

Nov-27-19  paavoh: Well, it is not a White win either, e.g. 9. Bxh6 Nxe4 10. fxe4 Qh4+ 11. g3 Qxh6 12. Qxh6 Bxh6 13. Nb5 Na6 14. Nxd6 Nb4 15. Kf2 exd5 16. exd5 b6 17. Nxc8 Raxc8 ⩲ in my opinion.
Nov-27-19  paavoh: "Damsel In Distress", perhaps?
