Sep-19-08  Xeroxx: 13. c5 is a crazy move haha :D White accepts the pawn opening up the file for the rook but then boom slamma dong :D
Sep-19-08  Xeroxx: 11. Bh6 is haha thats also a really sick move like :D no no you cant castle my bishop is preventing you no you cant do that!! :D
Dec-12-10  sfm: 13.c5!! is just a wonderful move. At first glance it looks harmless, but black is completely without reasonable moves. 13.-,d6 14.cxd,Qxd6 15.QxQ,exQ 16.Rfe1+ is unbearable. 13.-,bxc is much like in the game.
There must be better moves than 15.-,a6 but it's over. Nice finish. A surprisingly fast breakdown, who'd have thought that after 12.-,Bb7 was only 5 moves away?
Dec-26-11  heuristic: is 13.c5 that good?
or is it that 13...Qc7 is bad?

13...d6 14.Qa4 Qd7
13...Qc8 14.Re1 e6

to me, the Wht LSB has to be neutralized, so this is attractive : 13...Na5 14.Bxb7 Nxb7 15.cxb6 Qxb6
