Kibitzer's Corner
May-08-05  soberknight: Wow! Black was already in trouble after taking the poisoned pawn, but 9...Nxe4?? was suicidal. It's astounding because the website rates White at 2550 and Black at 1596!
Aug-17-05  Wuzu: ...White 2550 and Black 2596...
Mar-25-07  Manic: Wow, an almost 2600-rated player goes down in 10 moves. We average players can take heart in the fact that sometimes even extremely good GMs lose fast.
Nov-09-09  WhiteRook48: 10...Nxc3 looks maybe
Nov-09-09  310metaltrader: i agree, i think he gets out of trouble
Nov-09-09  310metaltrader: nah, white is up a rook

  FSR: Correct was 9...Qc5! when "Black is OK!," as Adorjan would say. Opening Explorer It's complicated, but it's not clear that White has anything better than a repetition with 10.Be3 Qb4 11.Bd2 Qc5! 12.Be3. The one player who tried for more as White, grabbing the rook with 10.Nc7+, lost. B Jaracz vs Miroshnichenko, 2004

9...Nxe4?? is a much "Baadur" (indeed losing) move, even though it succeeded for Black in Balashov vs Gulko, 1975 after 10.Rb1?? 10.a3! simply wins, since Black will be a rook down after 10...Nxc3 11.axb4 Nxd1 12.Nc7+ Kd8 13.Nxa8 Nb2 14.Ra2. S Bromberger vs J Kristiansen, 2006 Realizing this, Jobava resigned.
