Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-23-05  cade: Vasilevich should have taken the draw with 11...Bxh2+ 12.Kh1 bxc6 13.Bb6 Qb8 14.g3 Bxg3 15.fxg3 Qxg3+ and perpetual check.
Nov-23-05  Karpova: no, she shouldn't have done that. ok, she lost and had no chance of winning the title but a draw would have lead to the same situation. it was the right decision to the risk.
Nov-23-05  euripides: An annotator on Chessbase suggests that 17 Qe2 is a blunder allowing 17...Bxc5. This would be a baffling double blunder at this level. Maybe both players were looking at 17 Qe2 Bxc5 18 Na4 when Black has some difficulties in all lines.

  patzer2: Elizabeth Paehtz's strong tactic 32. Qh7+! is a neat example of an in between move (a.k.a. Zwischenzug or Intermezzo).

During a piece exchange, she cleverly interrupts her recapture of the Black Rook to take the time for an "in between move" check to deflect her opponent's King into a mating web.

  patzer2: Paehtz's 29. g4! appears to launch a decisive attack on Black's weakened castled position. Her play is both aggressive and strong!
