Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-20-04  patzer2: Nisipeanu's 14...Nxe4!? is an interesting but speculative sacrifice, which creates just enough confusion for the opponent to enable Black to win the game. White defends well for a few moves, but then misses a chance to gain a clear advantage in the endgame by not playing 19. Qe7!.

If White had played 19. Qe7! (instead of 19. Qd3), play could have continued 19...Nxf5 20. Qxd8+ Rxd8 21. Rae1 Nxg3 22. Rf3 c6 23. Ne7+ Kf8 24. Rxg3 Re8 25. Nxg6+ fxg6+ 26. Rxe8+ Kxe8 27. Rd3 . Here White has all the winning chances and Black is fighting for a draw.

Sep-20-04  patzer2: White's 20. g4?? (allowing 20...Bxa1) looks like a blunder, as 20. Rae1 would have given him a good position.
Sep-20-04  patzer2: Black's 24...Qb6+! is a surprisingly strong endgame clearance move. If White was expecting to win the isolated pawn on d6 at his leisure, the strong attack Black gains after this move quickly dashed those hopes.
Sep-20-04  patzer2: White's final blunder was 32. Kh2?? (32. Rf3 =), allowing Black to play the winning 32...Rxb3! This strong move initiates a "discovered attack" combination to set up a series of decisive Queen double attacks.
