Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-14-08  jerseybob: If with 11.h4 Kavalek thought he was forcing movement from the black g-pawn, 11..f6! must've been a slap in the face. 11.h3 looks better, to work on the weak white squares in the black camp. If 11..f5!? 12.ef,Nxf5 13.Rad1 looks good for white. 11..f6 would be a more Ujtelky-like move, possibly best answered by 12.Nh2

  Gypsy: <18...Nf4+!> A great move that Kavalek probably missed:

(1) 19.gxf4 gxf4 20.Bxf4 exf4 21.Qxf4 Bxc3 22.Qf5+ Rg6 23.bxc3 Ne5... and Black goes up in material while White position crumbles

(2) 19.Kg1(or Kh1) gives Black a choice between a strong attack and just simply forcing the White knigh out of play by, say, 19.Kg1 Nxe2 20.Qxe2 h5 21.Nh2 g4 (I have not bee able to find an immediate mate after 19...Qh5 however)

(3) 19.Bxf4... with the hindsight of the game variation, this might have been the best; looks terrible though

<23...Bxg4> Black will be healthy pawn up after 24.fxg4 Nxg4 25.Qd2 Nf6+ (and White drops also an additional x-change if 25.Rxg6 Nxe3+ 26.Kf3 Kxg6 27.Kxe3..., or 25.Bxg4 Qxd6 26.Bf5+ Kh8)

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Typical Ujtelky. After 11...f6, it's hard to believe that he's going to win 12 moves later.
