Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-23-05  Karpova: 29.rh7:+ is quiet nice!

i'm surprised that nobody kibitzed on this game before

Apr-23-05  paladin at large: Yes, an attractive game by Torre. 14....g5 and 20.... Rac8 are bad moves by Yates, the former weakening the Black king's position after the minor pieces melee has occurred, and the lattter is too slow moving to be effective, especially in the face of Torre's imminent onslaught.
Apr-24-05  Karpova: i think yates went wrong before 14..g5. his bf5 is misplaced and hemmed in by his own pawns. i don't like 11...c4 - he gains ground but his whole queenside counterplay vanishes immediately. 14....g5 was the only chance to protect the bf5 apart from be4 which loses a pawn.

yates misplayed the opening but it takes a very good player like torre repetto to prove that!

Jul-04-09  Atking: Juste realizing how deep is this game. Why not 8...Nh5 ? was my first though but soon I saw 9.Bg5 h6 10.Bh4 g5 11.Nxg5 hxN 12.QxNh5 and 12.Qxg5... Where black went wrong? 11...c4 looks clearly dubious (This pawn goes nowhere) Else 13...e6 is not an happy move but already Black position is difficult. Indeed subttle 9.Qd2 ~14.Qe2 or 6.Bd3~13.Bf3 are great!

  plang: Lasker recommends 12..b5 followed by ..Bb7. Also 13..Ne4 as an improvement. Finally, 14..h5 15 h3..h4 would have been better. Of course, 29..Rg7 would have held on a lot longer.
