Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-06-04  azaris: An interesting example of how even a strong grandmaster can get totally lost playing against the King's Gambit. After 15. ♘e5 Black might as well have resigned rather than soldiered on effectively down a rook with White pieces dominating the board.
Mar-28-05  Everett: Black was never really in this game, true, but by the end he is only a pawn down in material. Federov dominates nonetheless, and 29 Nd5 is a nice touch.
Mar-01-06  olav dalkeith: Hi Everett! He is a pawn and a knight down!
Nov-09-10  Everett: <olav dalkeith> Check those math skills!

  plang: Fedorov thought that 7..Qf5 would have been better than Yusupov's 7..Qd8. 9 Qe2+ was new idea that looks promising as the endgame looks pretty dreary for Black. 10..Kxe7!? has not been repeated; 10..Bxe7 might be an improvement. Again, perhaps 12..Kd8 might be an improvement. 20..Bc8 21 Nd4 followed by Ndb5 would not have helped Black. If 21..hxg 22 Nxg3..Rg5 23 Rxf5..Rxg3+ 24 Kh2 and Black loses material.
Nov-22-14  tranquilsimplicity: 29.Nd5! A perfect blockading sacrifice!#
