Kibitzer's Corner
May-04-08  Halofire: Very interesting game. Black had a great kingside counter attack going on there and somehow it just dissapated into nothing. f5 started it and it just got better with both bishops opening up and the rooks doubling on the kingside for the attack. Then just as the attack began to took shape, the pivotal move for white was c4. A decepitively passive move that could have in fact been a trap for black's white bishop, pinning it to black's queen, effectively stopping black's attack. It was a good game.

  wwall: Perhaps 21.Nxb7 and if 21...Qb6+, then 22.c5.

Or 22.Nxb7 and if 22...Qh4, then 23.g4.

Perhaps 23...Rxf3, and if 24.Rf1 Rxf1+ 25.Rxf1 e4 look good for Black.

Instead of 27.Qc4, perhaps 27.Nc4 and 28.Nxd6.

Perhaps 28...d5 and 29...d4.

Instead of 32...Bxb2, perhaps 32...Bd5 and 33...Rhf5.

Instead of 33...Bd5, perhaps 33...e4

Instead of 45...Bc6 and losing the pawn, perhaps 45...Rc6 46.Rxb7 Rxd6 47.Ke3 Re6 with some winning chances for Black.
