Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-22-03  CapablancaRules: After 12..Kh8 13.Nxg6 check! Black regains the piece but at the cost of many pawns.
Dec-22-03  fatbaldguy: Why not simply 13. f3 ?
Dec-22-03  CapablancaRules: Hmmm... I missed this, but White should win anyway. 9..Ng4 is a real blunder.
Feb-08-06  McCool: Did they both screw up or something?

I hope that you're kidding! 12...♔h8 13.♘xg6+?? fxg6 and the ♗ of g4 is still protected by the ♕ and can't be captured

Nov-22-06  cyruslaihy: <McCool>
how can someone resign just because of being materially 1 pawn down?
Nov-22-06  Cyphelium: <syracrophy> There's nothing in the comments of <CapablancaRules> that suggests that he wants to play 12.- ♔h8 13. ♘xg6+ fxg6 14. ♕xg4. In fact, after 14. ♕d3, white is two pawns up and easily winning, so I guess you were just kidding when you put those two question marks after 13. ♘xg6, right? ;-)

  FSR: After 12...Kh8, 13.Nxg6+ would indeed be a weak move, albeit still winning for White. 13.f3! winning a piece is much better.
