  crafty: 12. ... ♕xe6 13. ♗xb8 ♕xe4+ 14. ♗e2 ♗e7 15. O-O   (eval 3.93; depth 14 ply; 750M nodes)
Oct-30-05  lopium: To a master to lose so early means he really didn't studied well the opening he wanted to play....
Oct-30-05  aw1988: A classic QGA blunder: holding on to the pawn.
Oct-30-05  lopium: Yep I guess, as you said, a classic, I will say a well known to change! ahahz!
Jan-06-07  sixfeetunder: 8...c6 is a mistake, 8...e6 is much better.
May-02-11  webadict: I was wondering why not 11...bxc3, and I found that 12.exf7+ Ke7 (Not 12...Kxf7 13.Qxd8) 13.fxg8=N+ (Underpromoting to a Knight forces a tempo. 13.fxg8=Q isn't bad [Don't take my word for it], but I'm fan of underpromotions, and this is a good case for them... Right?) 13...Ke8 (13...Rxg8 keeps his Bishop out of play, though it doesn't matter a whole lot, I don't think. That Knight isn't going anywhere.) 14.Bxc4 and then it looks really bad for Black. He can't trade Queens and promote his Pawn like he's hoping (14...Qxd1+ 15.Kxd1 cxb2 16.Kc2 (Even his black-square Bishop can't promote that Pawn, and his light-square Bishop is stuck) or 14...cxb2 15.Qb1 Qa5+ 16.Bd2 Qa1 17.0-0)

Plus, he gains that hanging Knight on b8 whenever he wants with either Bishop.

Hopefully I didn't mess this one up.
