Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-09-07  Tomlinsky: An interesting example of the 7...h6 variation. Posting the knight on f4 two moves earlier with 17...Nf4 looks good. Perhaps 20.Nxa7 is more correct for white as in P San Segundo-Carrillo vs B Roselli Mailhe, 2004 or even dislodging the menacing knight first with g3.

28.Ra5?? is a blunder which Rustam missed because he didn't notice that the rook on f1 is underprotected allowing the immediate 28...Qxb3! when 29.Qxb3 doesn't work because of 29...Ne2+ Rxf1#.

How not to proceed with the line is demonstrated in Ehlvest vs Dzindzichashvili, 1994 where Roman charts the wrong course.

1.Rxe2 Qf1#
2. Qxe2
2. ...Qf1+! R(Q)x f1 Bxe3+ R(Q)xe3 Rxf1+ and mate.
3. Kh1 Qxf1+ and mate.

  Phony Benoni: Wait a second--am I getting blinder in my old age?

After 35.Qxe2 Qf1+ 36.Rxf1 Bxe3+ 37.Qxe3 Rxf1+ 38.Qg1, doesn't White just wind up a piece ahead?

And 35.Qxe2 Qf1+ 36.Rxf1 Rxf1+ 37.Qxf1 Bxe3+ 38.Kh1 is no better because the Black rook is pinned and can't play 38...Rxf1#.

May-20-07  Kangaroo: <<Phony Benoni>: Wait a second--am I getting blinder in my old age?>

I do not know what is true in this alternative that you stated, but after <35. Qxe2 Bxe3+> the game is over. Either <36. Qxe3 Qf1+> or <36. Kh1 Bxb6> leads to the victory for Black [extra piece, at least!]

  Phony Benoni: <Kangaroo> Thanks. It's good to know that my skills of analysis are just as good as ever. Somehow, I kept picturing the White king on h1!

  plang: 17 a4 was a new move; 17 Qb3 had been played previously. Kashimdzhanov was critical of 20 Nd3? recommending instead 20 Nxa7!..Qa5 21 Nb5..Bxb5 22 axb..h5 23 f3!..Qxb5 24 Bxf4..gxf 25 fxg with advantage to White. Black retained the initiative after the double blunder at move 28 (see first post above). Note that 31..Nh3+? doesn't work after 32 gxh..Rxf1+ 33 Qxf1..Rxf1+ 34 Kxf1 and White will win the queen back with a winning advantage. Vacating the f-file with 32 Re1 doesn't work after 32..Nh3+ 33 gxh..Bxe3+ 34 Rxe3..Qxb6 35 Qe2..gxh and there is no defense to Black's pressure.
