Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-05-08  ozmikey: Aha! Now this game makes sense. The Keene book has 27...Rb7 instead of ...Rb3, which makes the play afterwards inexplicable.

After 27...Rb3 the threat of 28...Nxg4! 29.fxg4 Rxe3 is actually very hard to meet. Makes me wonder whether White should have tried 25.Bxb5 instead; after 25...Rxb5 (otherwise just 26.Be2) 26.Nxb5 Ba6, Black still has a big initiative, but not quite as much as in the game with the rook on the b-file no longer there.

  kamalakanta: What happens if White takes the h-pawn with 16.Bxh4?
Apr-26-09  itsankush: <kamalakanta: What happens if White takes the h-pawn with 16.Bxh4?> Black can simply get the pawn back with Nxe4 and then has a much better position

Deep shredder gives a beautiful variation with 16.Bxh4 Nxe4 17.Qf4 Nxg3! 18.Bxd8 Bxc3+! 19.bxc3 Nxe2 20.Qh4 Raxd8 and Black is better.

Deep Rybka 3 gives a better line as 16.Bxh4 Nxe4 17.Qf4 Nxg3 18.Bxd8 Bxc3+ 19.bxc3 Nxe2 20.Qh4 Ng3+ 21.Be7 Nf5 22.Qg5 Rxe7+

Dec-28-15  kubbybulin: Just OTB it looks like the Rybka line is far superior. In the Shredder line it's difficult to tell the future of the e2 knight after 21. Kd2 and 22. Rhe1 or Rad1 as the black rooks are in a bind.
