Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-21-09  DoctorD: In a 2006 correspondence game I think I improved on this variation with, instead of 12. Kh1?:

[12.Rf2 Qxb4 13.c3

A) 13...Qe7? A1) 14.Qxf4± Be6 (14...Qe1+ 15.Rf1 Qe7 16.d4) 15.Bc2; A2) 14.d4± ;

B) 13...Qd6 B1) 14.d4 g5 (14...Bf5? 15.Bxf4 c7 is a good target, if Qe7? Bxc7 or Qd7 16. Qd5! 15...Qd7 16.Qd5 Rfd8 17.Qxd7 Rxd7 18.Bxc7 Rxc7 19.Rxf5 now f7 is also a good target, as well as Rook shifts to the other "bishop file" Rc5. Fritz sees this as a winning game for white +1.75.....) 15.h4!

This seems very "konsequent" and "im Sinne" of the KG 15...h6 Now the difficulty seems to be in deciding between the immediate capture and Qh5, or whether there is a difference..... 16.hxg5 hxg5 17.Qh5 Qf6 much better than in the Spielmann game, since no tempo, has had to be gained with Bh3, this now seems to divide into two variations..... 18.g3 Ne7 (18...Bf5 19.gxf4 g4 20.Qg5+ Qxg5 21.fxg5 Ne7 22.Bf4 Rac8 23.Re1 Ng6 24.Bxc7 Rxc7 25.Rxf5 Nh4 26.Rf6 Nf3+ 27.Rxf3 gxf3 28.g6 Kg7 29.gxf7 a6 30.Kf2 Rh8 31.Rg1+ Kf6 32.Rg8 Rc8 33.Kxf3 b5 34.Bd5 Ke7 35.Ke4 Rf8 36.b3 Rh4+ 37.Kf3 Rh3+ 38.Rg3 Rfh8 39.Kg2 Rxg3+ 40.Kxg3 1–0 Dowd-Fereven(2220), CC 2006) 19.gxf4 g4 (19...gxf4?? 20.Rg2+ leads to mate...... 20...Bg4 21.Rxg4+ Ng6 22.Rxg6+ Qg7 23.Bxf4 Rae8 24.Rxg7+ Kxg7 25.Bh6+ Kh7 26.Bxf8+ Kg8 27.Qg6+) 20.f5

B1a) 20...g3 21.Rg2 (21.Rf3 Nxf5 22.Bc2 Qg6 23.Rxf5 Bxf5 24.Qxf5 Rae8 25.Bf4 Re2 26.Qxg6+ fxg6 27.Bb3+ Kh7 28.Bxc7 Rff2 29.Bd5 Rxb2 30.Re1 Rfc2 31.c4 Rxa2 32.Bxg3 ) ;

B1b) 20...Nxf5 21.Rh2 Qg7 22.Bf4 Nxd4 23.cxd4 g3 24.Be5 gxh2+ 25.Kxh2 Bg4 26.Rg1 Rae8 27.Rxg4 Rxe5 28.Rxg7+ Kxg7 29.Qxe5+ ;

B2) 14.Qxf4² ]
