Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-19-05  vonKrolock: <16.Re4>! Starts a strong attack...

<16...N5f6>?...that should be met whith more efficient defensive measures - maybe 16...h6, followed by Rh8 and eventually a Ng8 followed by a King escape via 'f8' was at least a plan...

<17...Bb3> Now follows a nice finish

Feb-19-05  aw1988: If 16...h6 white has the tempting 17. Nxg6!, whilst not decisive is very dangerous.
Feb-20-05  vonKrolock: <aw1988> Right. What about 16...N7f6 17.Rh4 Ng8
Feb-20-05  Saruman: <vonKrolock> I tried 18.Nh5+ gxh5 19.Qg5+ Kh8 in your line, which looked quite scary initially. But my attack against the black king ran out of steam.
Feb-21-05  vonKrolock: <Saruman> Tack! The point is that Black can not allow the check in 'h6' as actually occurred
Jan-13-21  ZoneChess: How is this the Kasparov attack when Garri was a 1-year old infant at the time? Why not name the attack after the first one who played it...
