Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-12-07  russep: What's wrong with 25...Nxe3 cause it looks like black will mate on his next move unless white checks him?

  Breunor: After 25 Nxe3, 25. fxe3 and the Rook covers g2
Apr-12-07  sandmanbrig: What an amazing sack!
Apr-13-07  luzhin: Yes, the threat of Rh4 is unanswerable.
Apr-13-07  whiteshark: <18.Lc2?>
(Verständlich, dass Naiditsch das Remis durch Zugwiederholung nach 18.Dd1 Lg4 ablehnt, zumal 18.Lc2 kürzlich empfohlen wurde. Der Zug ist aber objektiv schwächer als 18.Dd1 oder 18.Dc1.) 18...Lxc2 19.Dxc2 f5 20.c4 bxc4!
(Dank dieser vorbereiteten Neuerung gerät Gustafssons Angriff nicht ins Stocken.) 21.Sxc4 f4! 22.Ld2
(Nicht 22.gxf4?? Dg4+ und gewinnt, bzw. 22.Sxd6? fxe3 23.Sxe8 exf2+.) 22...f3! 23.Dd3
(Die Dame soll nach f1, wegen der Drohung 23...Dh3 nebst 24...Dg2 matt. Schnell verloren hätte 23.Kh1? Dh3 24.Tg1 Te2, z.B. 25.Taf1 Lxg3! 26.Txg3 Dxf1+ 27.Tg1 Dxf2.) 23...Te2!
(Auf diesem feinen Sperrzug basiert die schwarze Angriffsidee: Die weiße Dame hat nun keinen Zugang mehr nach f1.) 24.Txe2 Dh3 25.Se3?
(Zäher war 25.Dxf3 Txf3 26.Sxd6, obwohl Schwarz auch dann nach 26...Sf6! 27.Tae1 h6 und der Drohung ...Sg4 nahezu auf Gewinn stünde.) 25...Tf4!!
(Das zweite Turmopfer entscheidet sofort, es droht nämlich 26...Th4! 27.gxh4 Dxh2+ 28.Kf1 Dh1 matt. Zum gleichen Ende würde 26.gxf4 Lxf4 nebst ...Dxh2+ führen. Und weil auch 26.Dxa6 Th4 27.Da8+ Kf7! 28.Db7+ Se7 29.Db3+ Kf8 nichts mehr hilft, gab Naiditsch auf. Vielleicht hatte er nur mit 25...Tf6? gerechnet gehabt, worauf noch 26.De4! möglich gewesen wäre.)
Jun-30-08  Ziggurat: Lovely! <notyetagm>, something for one of your collections?
Nov-18-08  Marmot PFL: Guess white should take the draw with 18.Qd1
Feb-13-11  ToTheDeath: Beautiful combination... probably opening prep but still a very nice game.
Mar-09-11  hedgeh0g:
Jan-18-13  shakman: 3 months before this game was played, another game was played V Iordachescu vs S Brunello, 2007
Aug-14-14  Xeroxx: That's right.
Jun-21-16  TheBish: Nice game, and a miniature!
