Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-25-05  Karpova: 7...nbd7 8...nb8 a great manoeuver!

11...qe8? he may have put up some resistance with 11...kh7 though white would still have an advantage.

Apr-25-05  weirdoid: <>, should't this game be attributed to Leif Erlend Johannessen? Another member, Karpova, pointed out that Svein Johannessen was a bit too old to play U16 in 1995.
Apr-25-05  weirdoid: Ooops, the first comment in this game was also from her ....
Dec-29-05  Chessman1: This game looks more like a draw than a win for white because 12. ... Qd8 13. Nxg6 Rf7 or Re8 looks like a draw and 12. ... Qf7 13. Nxc7 Rb8 looks like a draw too.

Or maybe black thought that losing a pawn will mean that he will lose the game.

If I were black I would offer white a draw and if he accepts it, that's good, and if he dosen't, I will prove to him that he should.

Dec-29-05  Assassinater: <This game looks more like a draw than a win for white>

A pawn down doesn't mean a draw at all at this level of play, especially if it's this early in the game. White has the initiative (Nf4-Ne6 seems like a nasty idea), and black's position is somehwat cramped. Why do you think that it's a draw?
