Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-11-06  Ulhumbrus: 9...Ne5 neglects Black's development which lags already. 9...0-0 gets the King into safety without delay.
Sep-11-06  Ulhumbrus: Instead of 15 Qg5, White gains the advantage by 15 Nd5! Bxd2 16 Nxc7 Bxc1 17 Nxa8 Bg5 18 Nb6! and the d7 pawn will fall following Nxc8 removing the Black QB which guards the d7 pawn.The text makes it easier for Black to withdraw his KB, as with pressure on the point d6 reduced to only two attacking pieces, Ne4 can be answered by ...d6.
Sep-11-06  Ulhumbrus: After 23...Qxh5 24 gxh4 White may have no advantage even if he can win a pawn, as his King side is broken and Black has the bishop pair.
Sep-11-06  Ulhumbrus: After 32 Nd3 one interesting question is when the two bishops can defend successfully - which they are said to be able to do at least sometimes- against a R and N. If the bishop pair can defend this ending against a R and N, what is the method for defending it?
Sep-12-06  Cyphelium: <Ulhumbrus> So 15. ♘d5 ♗xd2 16. ♘xc7 ♗xc1 17. ♘xa8, and now why 17.- ♗g5? Instead, after 17.- ♗xb2 18. ♘b6 ♔f8, there's no advantage in sight for white, for example 19. ♘xc8 ♖xc8 20. ♖xd7 ♖xc4 21. ♗xb7 a5, with a drawish position.
Sep-12-06  Ulhumbrus: <Cyphelium> In that case 15 a3 may be better.
Sep-13-06  Cyphelium: <Ulhumbrus> Why do you think that that would be better than the move played?
Sep-13-06  Ulhumbrus: <Cyphelium> Better than 15 Nd5, not better than 15 Qg5. However it may be better than 15 Qg5 as well, after 15...Bf8 16 Ne4 d6 17 Rc3
Sep-18-06  Cyphelium: <Ulhumbrus> After 15. a3 ♗f8 16. ♘e4 d6 17. ♖c3 f5, the knight seems silly; 17. ♘g5 h6 18. ♘h3 g5. Now 19. ♘xg5 doesn't seem to get much play for the piece, so black looks ok.
Sep-18-06  Ulhumbrus: <<Ulhumbrus> If after 15 a3 Bf8 16 Ne4 d6 the move ...f5 has to be regarded as a threat, this suggests delaying 17 Rc3 by playing 17 g4.

  technical draw: <shintaro> It's not a blunder just a miscalculation.
