Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-30-04  themindset: tremendous exchange sac that pays off with a killer connected pass pawn pair.
Nov-30-04  Minor Piece Activity: Why 16. exd6 instead of Rxd6? Wouldn't it be best to keep the KN from returning to f6, and to keep direct pressure on the d file instead of closing it? Of course I know it's a pawn nail on the 6th rank so it can't be too bad, but is it really superior or just a matter of taste?
Dec-22-04  themindset: i think it's superior. in this case, it opens lines for both white's dark-square bishop and knight (notice that Ne5 follows quite quickly), forcing concessions from black... in particular, allowing the a3-d6 pawnchain that reduces black to almost complete passivity.
