Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-24-03  unclewalter: this move and the mate in 5 is of course best...also winning is 11...Qg4
Sep-24-03  patzer2: White's 5. Nxh4 is an opening move error, giving up a developed knight exercising control of the center while developing the black queen with an extra tempo.

According to BCO (Kasparov and Keene), the correct move is 5. Kf1. After 4. ..Bh4+ 5. Kf1 d5 6. Bxd5 Nf6 7. Nc3 Nxd5 8. Nxd5 f5 9. Nxh4 Qxh4 10. Nxc7+ Kd8 11. Nxa8 fe the position is level.

Another possible improvement in the opening is to play 4. Be2! instead of 4. Bc4. Kasparov and Keene in BCO give 4. Be2! Bh4+ 5. Kf1 Be7 6. d4 g5 7. h4 g4 8. Ne5 h5 9. Bc4 Rh7 10. Bxf4! as leading to a clear white advantage. Of course rather than playing 4...Bh4+, after 4. Be2, black is better to play 4...Nf6 as in Anderton Matthew vs Michael Adams, 1992

Sep-24-03  ongyj: 11...Qg4 is also a win? How about 11...Qg4 12.Qf1 what next?
Sep-24-03  patzer2: <ongyi> Did you mean 11..Qg4 12. Qf2, since the queen cannot move from d2 to f1 in a single move?

If so, 11...Qg4 12. Qf2 Qd1+ 13. Qf1 Qxf1# wins for black.

Sep-24-03  Alyosha Karamazov: Again, the winning combination begins on f3. Was that an intentional choice by y'all at chessgames.com?
Sep-24-03  crafty: 11...♕g4 12. ♕xe3 fxe3 13. ♗xf7+ ♔xf7 14. ♘c3 ♘f3+ 15. ♔f1 ♘d2+ 16. ♔e1 ♕xg2 17. ♘e2 ♕xh1+ 18. ♘g1 ♕xg1+ 19. ♔e2 ♕f2+ 20. ♔d1 ♕f1#   (eval -Mat09; depth 11 ply; 250M nodes)
Sep-24-03  myratingstinks: I feel good. finally solved one that is more than 3 moves.
