Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-19-04  laskerdog: I recon' white was too impatient. After 12th move, Emmins should prepare for a dbl. bishop sacrifice by continuing with 13. b3, then blacksquered bishop in position, change horses, and then attacking h7 with B, Q, R and B. Hopefully this would've disturbed black. Allthough, black seemed pretty confident, the counterattack was strong!
Nov-19-04  Shams: laskerdog, 13.b3 hangs the knight. And white hardly has time to set up the other bishop since black threatens to take on d3.

white`s most obvious improvement is the intermezzo 16.Rh3 before retaking on c3. 16...Be2 was as obvious as they come. Still, I think black survives this attack.

Nov-19-04  laskerdog: Shams is absolutely right,the correct timing of steps has to start with the 13.Nxd5,.. sorry 'bout that
Nov-19-04  Shams: but even if you trade knights first, you can`t expect to get both bishops into the attack. 13.Nxd5 cxd5 14.b3 and white can always rip the light-squared bishop. yes?
