Feb-28-05  admeyer: Two Ljubo miniature losses in this line in 1973. This one was the shortest of the two. OUCH!
Dec-30-07  vanytchouck: Hello,
In his book "l'Ecole des échecs 2" ("The school of chess", i don't know if it's the real title in english), the GM A.Kotov has written that the move 9.Ng5 "(...) is already the critical mistake(...)" but if instead of 11. g3 the white play 11. Qxe6 + Kh8 12. 0-0-0, they don't seem to have great problems, even after 12...Re8 Qh3.

In any case, it's what emerge from an analysis of this line against the computers (Gnuchess and ChessAcademy 7)

Did i miss something?

Jun-10-10  timothee3331: On this variation with 11.Qxe6+ Kh8 12.O-O-O I would suggest 12..Ne5! A)13.f3 Ng4!
or 13.h3 Ng4 ! in both cases threatening Nf2 and Re8! B)13.Qh3 Nfg4!
C)13.Re1 or 13.Rg1 13...Nfg4! I would be very grateful for any refinement, correction or refutation .
Jun-10-10  timothee3331: For the little history i found it alone and i Just checked it with Fritz 9
Oct-07-12  Olavi: According to Kavalek, this tournament had an excellent brilliancy prize and Ljubo avoided 16.Qh3 because of 16...Qxd5 17.Bg2 Rxe2+!!. Choosing the obviously losing 16.Qg4, he hoped he would have a chance at it with some other game himself...
