Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-16-06  Knight13: A sheer murder, with great attacks and positional plays. A great game.
Mar-17-06  TheSlid: Scrappy game Nimzo's 10th move sets the tone - is this also from "Chess Praxis" <Knight13>? BTW nice to see you have moved on recently : )
Jan-16-20  kvonpat: 7. ..c5?! is too passive. 7. ..e5 seems more natural 9. ..f5? is a big mistake. Weakening e5 and making 10.d5 by white even stronger. Again 9. ..e5 was better.

Ahues did not understand the position arising after 6. ..gxf6

Jan-16-20  areknames: 11...Bd7?? preventing Qa4 but allowing 12.Bh5 is the losing move. 11...Bg7 kicking the knight looks ok, and if 12.Qa4+ Kf8 13.f4 h5 and Black is still fighting.
Jan-20-20  kvonpat: 11. ,,,Bd7? was the last error that's true. But positionally black is very bad after 9. ..f5. E.g. Instead of 11.Ne5 - may be even stronger - white could have played 11. 00. Idea: leaving e5 for the bishopmanouvre bf4, be5. Highlighting the weakness of e5
