Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-16-05  ionnn: A nice game. 10 h4!! is a great move and a terrible surprise for black. Only 10 Be2 and 10 Bf5 had been played before. Some analysis by Parma and Marovic : * 10 ... Nxc4? 11 h5
11 ... Rxf7 12 Ng5 Rf6 13 hxg6 Bf5 14 Nd5! Bxg6 15 Nxf6 exf6 16 Rxh7+! Kg8 17 Rxg7+ 11 ... Nb6 12 hxg6 h6 13 f5 Bxf5 14 Nh4 Qd7 15 Bxh6! Bxh6 16 Qh5

* 11 ... Nxc4? 12 hxg6 h5 13 Dd3 Nb6 14 Rxh5+! Bxh5 15 Qf5

Apr-14-09  dwavechess: 24/28 concur with Rybka 3 at 3 min. per move for Velimirovic
May-27-13  phil6875: 10 h4 is nothing special, Black can equalize with the following 10...Nxc4 11 h5 Bf5 12 Nh4 Bf6 13 Nxg6+ Kg7 14 Nxf8 Kxf8 15 g4 cxd4 16 gxf5 dxc3 17 Rg1 Qa5=
Feb-14-22  rwbean: Yes, best move is 10. ♗e2 ... after 10. h4 then 10 ... ♘xc4 11. h5 g5 ... White still has the advantage.

After 10... ♘xc4 11. h5 ♗f5? White has a winning advantage after 12. hxg6 ♗xg6 13. f5 ♗xf5 14. ♘g5 ♕d7 15. ♕h5 h6 16. d5 ♘e5 17. ♘e6!

Aug-16-22  BickeDag: Games like this are always satisfying. People who put too much trust into their engines will never be able to appreciate the move 10. h4!!, and many others like it will be overlooked in their games.
Aug-16-22  MississQueen: This one is too strange for me honey. Why should the white queen get to win when the black queen did the checks and captures?
