Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-09-04  WMD: Opening expert Portisch walks into a book opening trap with 12.0-0. 12.Bb2 is the preferred move. There's no excuse for the lemon 19.Ba3 though.

  profK: Amazing that Portisch could not generate more than 1 win in the 16 listed games. Some styles are just like a brick wall to some players !!

  perfidious: Surprising indeed that a player with Portisch's erudition should plunge headlong into hot water with 12.0-0.

First remember seeing the line given in Chess Life & Review, as Lengyel-Hamann, Las Palmas 1973 deviated with 14.g3 Qf6 15.Bxd5 Bf5 16.e4 Bh3 17.Rd1 Be5 0-1

  PresidentAlien: Seeing the line again in a game, played in 2007 between 2 german GM's:

M.Prusikin-R.Buhmann (German-Ch-Bad Königshofen 2007) 14.g3 Qf6 15.Bxd5 Bf5 16.e4? Bh3 17.Rd1 Be5 0-1
