Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-04-02  bishop: Reacting to the missing Black King,s Bishop, White undertook an immediate attack. Maybe Black's mistake was 10...d6 allowing the elimination of a key defensive piece, or maybe earlier he should have gone ahead and played 7...Nxh5 accepting the exchange sacrifice to come, although this line looks promising for White after Rxh5 followed by e4.
Nov-09-02  drukenknight: it seems that black is trying to hard to hold onto his material gains. Right from the start he is ahead in terms of connected pawns. By the time the 10th moves comes around he has 3 more connected pawns than white, does he intend to convert this advantage into something or does he think he is going to maintain this for the whole game?

The only compensation that white has for the loss of pawns is that black can't castle kingside, perhaps no big deal, but somehow that has to be considered some sort of positional plus.

Okay so I'm thinking black +3 in material. NOw what is wrong w/ 10...Nxf2? a N goes down and breaks up 2 pawns, a difference in material of 1 pt.

BUt what else happens? whites K becomes dislodged, so whatever positional advantage white had in terms of castling has surely been nullified.

SO black could give back a measly 1 pt. in material, still be ahead in material and completely negate the positional problem. In fact he might have an posit. advantage in terms of the King protection for each side:

10...Nxf2 11 Kxf2 Qccc7

  OhioChessFan: I don't like 10...d6 at all, but there aren't a whole lot of options. I have to think Black's 9th move was the problem. At first glance, e6 seems okay.
