Kibitzer's Corner
May-05-03  TevyeGF: Black should not have played 9...g5. My move: 9...d6. (if black played 9...d5, white responds 10. exd5. at this position, if black moves 10...Nxd5, white would move 11. Bxd8, and then for Black the game is lost.)
Dec-15-03  rochade18: 9...g5: who can refuse such a nice invitation? Sometimes it is useful to play g5, for example in slav lines, but not in an open game. the f6-knight is the only defending piece and it is pinned.
Nov-11-05  epiglottis5: Black will be down material. Any attempt to unpin the queen and save the knight leads to mate. For instance, 12...Qe8 13.fxe5 Nh7 (13...Ng8 leads to similar outcome) 14.Bf6+ Nxf6 15.exf6 Kh6 16.Rf5! Kh7 17.Qh5+ Kg8 18.Rg5# (14...Kh6 15.Rf5! Nxf6 16.exf6 also mates in several more moves)
Mar-06-08  wolfmaster: This is an important game to study for those who castle kingside early as Black.
