Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-12-09  The Chess Express: Black's opening plan was sound, but it seems that 13...Rab8? was the blunder. It gave white an extra move to organize the defense of e5, and black's ♖ was better on a8 where it supports the a-♙ advance anyway. After <13...Nb6> white's play would no longer have worked. For example 14. Qd2 Bb7 15. Qa5 c5 16. Re1 Bxf3 17. gxf3 d6

Black will win the e-♙ for virtually no compensation. Maybe white should play something like 14. Qe3 c5 15. Bd3 Bb7 16. Rhe1 d6

Now best is probably 17. Kb1 to be able to play exd6 without having to worry about the Bxb2+, Kxb2 Qf6+ threat.
