Kibitzer's Corner
May-07-04  jsastre48: This is an excellent game and quite unusual for Stein to loose in a combinational position.

  tpstar: <TrueFiendish> That was Black's only move which saved the Nf6 but avoided 13. Qxc6+ Nxc6 14. Nc7+ & 15. Nxa8, besides 12 ... Qxf3 13. gxf3 Nfd7 and now White can choose between 14. Nc7+ Kd8 15. Nxa8 Bb7 16. Nb6 Bxf3 regaining the exchange (although White will be a Pawn up after 17. ed), or 14. ed with 3 Pawns for the piece but White's 4 connected passed Pawns should prevail in the endgame. I believe Black's mistake was 9 ... b5?! instead of a developing move, then Black underestimated 13. Rxd5! where White is a full Rook down for the attack. Note 16 ... Nd7 17. Qe8++, or 16 ... Qd7 17. Ne6+ Kc8 18. Nb6+, so Black is lost.
May-10-04  f1list: I like 8..Be7 and so black can castle and then attack the opposite side.
May-12-04  TrueFiendish: tpstar: thanks, I was basically wondering if he could have gone 12...Qxf3 instead, but as you point out it was still good for white.
