  whiteshark: <25...Bxb5 26.Be2 c4 27.Bxd3 cxd3 28.c4 Bc6> would have offered better swindling chances.
Aug-20-08  cn1ght: 13... Bd7? Neither I nor Sigma Chess find black to be worse off, in fact I think Black is slightly better after, 13... Bxb2. If 14. R-b1 B-d4 and I don't see any advantage for White, whereas Black is either up a pawn or white's Rook gets stuck on B7 until he pushes pawn(s) to attack the Bishop giving Black time to do whatever, or if 14. Rad1 Ba3 15. Rd3 Be7 and although Black is cramped, with Queen's off the board and the center pawns gunking up the center a bit, I don't see Black as being in any big trouble personally.
Aug-20-08  Mizerak: 13. ... Bxb2 14. Rab1 Bd4 15. Bxb7 Bxb7 (Rb8? 16. Bc6+) 16. Rxb7 and double on the b-file. Not sure why Black would go in for that.
Aug-20-08  Mizerak: Though I suppose after 16. Rxb7 Bb6 17. Be3 Black is no worse off than even.
Nov-12-09  birthtimes: Interesting that Nezh is the only one to have played 7.Ne5!

Nov-12-09  birthtimes: Nezh also could have won with 24.Bh5+ followed by 25.Be2 thereby winning the exchange!

I'm not sure that 7.Ne5 deserves an exclamation mark. 7.Qe2 and 7.0-0, keeping pieces on, seem much better.

<Though I suppose after 16. Rxb7 Bb6 17. Be3 Black is no worse off than even.>

After 17.Be3? Black is winning, because White will lose the exchange after Kd8-c8.

But 17.Rd1!, cutting off the Black king, seems fairly even.

Earlier in this line, 16...0-0-0 looks even better for Black.

In short, it is not clear that White has any advantage after 13...Bxb2.

Nov-12-09  Starf1re: birthtimes: I was looking at the position after 24 and trying to figure out why you recommend 24 bh5+, which will be met with the pawn advance. I wasn't quite sure why you recommend this so I downloaded the game and ran a little Rybka analysis. 24) bh5+ g6 25) be2 does win the exchange and evaluates as about +.9 for white, but 24)be2 also forces black into a losing exchange and evaluates as about +1.1. At a depth of 20 this is Rybka's preferred move. However, ignoring its advice we force a different order: 24)b5 axb5 25)axb5 bxb5 26)e2 and now white has a BIG advantage, about +1.5. I believe this is white's best line.
