Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-28-04  ughaibu: Even in the world correspondence championship miniatures occur. So much for the Gruenfeld.
Jan-28-04  fatbaldguy: Well, it's not necessarily the Gruenfeld's fault if black plays e5 instead of the thematic c5...
Jan-28-04  ughaibu: Fatbaldguy: Are you suggesting that in this game black would've been better off playing 9....c5? If so, could you explain why?
Jan-29-04  fatbaldguy: IMHO, ... c5 would have been better bc it would have enabled black to attack the center and at the same keep ... e6 in reserve, enabling f:g6 instead of h:g6 as happened during the game, with painful consequences on the h file.
Jan-29-04  ughaibu: Interesting, thanks for the reply. I thought e5 was better as it lets black's queen influence the kingside and gives him the e-file. c5 looks rather leisurely in the face of white's attack and weakens the h1-a8 diagonal. For example 9....c5 10.h5 e6 11.d5 breaks up the defending pawns (11....e5 12.d6), 10.Bg5 looks another interesting response to c5.
May-27-04  Prophylaxis: 9...e5 does not seem an error, although it is a rare line.
May-27-04  drukenknight: 9...e5 is given as one of three main lines at the chesslab site.
May-27-04  Prophylaxis: I was using the "find similar games" search.
May-27-04  drukenknight: Hmm, this game is actually kind of messed up. Black probably made several inferior moves between 10-13. (..Nc6 is one better move). You wonder how good correspondence players really are when they start making errors as soon as they leave the book.

But 14...Bxh6 and 17...Qxg2 were probably even worse to overlook.
