Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-15-03  InspiredByMorphy: Judit developed her pieces, and took advantage of the open position well.
Jul-13-04  InspiredByMorphy: Does anybody have any thoughts on blacks 4.f5 ? I like the way it looks, but was told it was bad. Perhaps a better strategy for black would have been to play 6. ... Qd7 followed by 7. ... O-O-O ?
Jan-15-05  Granite: f5 seems weak to me because whites game is already based on tempo and the open game, so opening the position favors white who's better developed and has the initative. Plus it weakens the black king, this gives white more tactics to work with since he's aimed at the kingside already.

Judit quickly consolidates her center and with 9. Ne5 she's dominating the position. It's presence on that strong central square forces the weaking of the queenside and black castled into a mess.

What I'd like to know is, why not 18. ... Rxe3 which lets Qc6 defend a7. If the queen takes the bishop black can take the knight, seems to be ok, am I missing something?

Aug-09-05  joddle: 18... Rxe3?? fails to 19. Qb8#
Aug-09-05  mjk: 7...d5, 8...e4 seems like a really bad plan: it overextends the center, which then dissolves, it gives White good squares, and loses a Pawn.

4...f5 does look weak, but maybe 6...exf4, 7...♕e7, 8...0-0-0 works.

Dec-19-10  kevins55555: Judit would have found a win from this, always!!

Dec-19-10  kevins55555: g6 is a bad move LOL Fight of the ♙awns.
Dec-19-10  sevenseaman: It seems Black's response to the opening is prematurely ambitious. It got aggressive before consolidation and adequate development.

<Granite> The Black rook is unable to leave the back rank. If 18...Rxe3. 19. Qb8#.
