Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-11-06  syracrophy: I wanna notice some points of this game:

12.g3? <This move prepares the move 13.f4? that is also a mistake. White should not advance his kingside pawns too fast because these pawns will be weakened and easy to attack>

13.f4? <Just the same. White is making big weaknesses on his position>

And the rest was an easy ending, where white had a big disadvantage already.
