Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-11-08  ThePawnOTron2: Both White and Black made instructive blunders in the opening. 5.Nxe5?? tries to fork the bishop and knight, both players overlooking that the simple 5...Nxe5 attacks the bishop at c4.


Oct-11-08  ThePawnOTron2: On a further note, 9.Bg5?? runs in to a simple pin-breaking tactic. 9...Ng4+ wins a piece with a much better game.

So there are no less than THREE 3-point blunders in the first ten moves. What's the world coming to? :-)


Oct-11-08  Ziggurat: And on the next move (11) Black misses an instant win with the obvious 11...Qe3+.
Oct-11-08  ThePawnOTron2: Ziggurat, that is true! 11...Qe3+ threatens Qf2# with tempo-that is, Black mates next turn.
