Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-10-06  AdrianP: A very exciting game from Svidler (who was it who accused Svidler of being boring). It looks to me like ...c5 was a novelty and must have been played with the idea of offering the a8 rook sacrifice after Bf3. Can anyone help me with what happens after 12. ...Bxa8?
Feb-15-06  alicefujimori: <AdiranP>I suppose you meant 13.Bxa8 right? Well, here's one of the possibilities:

13.Bxa8 dxc3 14.Nf3 (14.Ne4 Nd7! 15.Bb7 Qc7 16.Ba6 Bf5 17.f3 Nc5 18.Bg3 e5! 19.Bb5 Nxe4 20.fxe4 Bxe4 and Black has 5 pawns AND the attack for the rook.) 14...Qd3! 15.Rc1 Na6! and Black's attack looks very serious. (The two bishops are particularly strong.)

May-09-08  acirce: <The best move of the game - and I would be even prouder of it if I had seen the idea behind it.> -- Svidler about 25..Qb5. (New in Chess 2005/4)
