Apr-23-07  vonKrolock: <12.a3> From this Game You win the impression that the Worrall Attack in this form is a squeezer; and particullarly after this move, a novelty by Short aiming the maintenance of episcopal presence in the route a2-g8

<[12...♘a5> Huebner himself suggest 12...h6 or 12...♕d7 as alternatives (cf Tiviakov vs Grischuk, 1999)

<14...♘c6> From his comments in Informator, it's evident that Huebner considered this the main source of his defeat, recommending 14...cxb4 instead of - but the text move is a consequence of the manouevre ♘a5, c7-c5: there's a chance that this sequence is not the best for this particular case

<17.♘g5> Strong and aesthetically pleasant

<20.♕xd5> Every white move from 17-20 deserved an exclamation mark, but here the attacking player would surely consider the alternative 20.♕h5 - We can not assert immediatelly about it's merits, but - about Huebner's <"20...♗c5 21.♕h7 ♔f8 22.♘e4 ♗f2 23.♘f2 ♘c3 24.♘g4 ♕d6 with unclear play"> I dont' need a computer to tell me that now ♗g5!! is a winning blow

Apr-26-07  vonKrolock: <22...♗c5> now Huebner, usually so circunspect and sparsome about ! or ? signs, adds: <"? time"> And follows two lines, starting respectivelly with 22...♕h6 and 22...♕g6, leading both to <"decisive advantage for white"> - well, if black was lost, why the interrogation mark? The game was lost anyway, there would be some better way to lose!?
