Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-07-06  Cyphelium: The whole plan with 10. f4, 12. g4 etc. doesn't look convincing. After 13.- ♘e4 black has no problems. Furthermore, after 14. ♘g3 ♘xe5! he is already better. Possibly white should have played 14. ♘xd7 ♕xd7 instead, though parting with such an outpost is equal to admitting failure. 18. f5 looks like a bad move, the last chance was perhaps 18. ♗d3, though black is still better of course. When playing his 18th move, I guess white's calculated up to 21. fxe6, and then aimed for something like 21.- fxe6 22. ♕xf8+ ♕xf8 23. ♖xf8 ♖xf8 24. ♗xd3, which admittedly doesn't look too great either, but at least there's some fighting left. After 21.- f6!, though, there are no more illusions. Game over for white.
