Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-30-09  WhiteRook48: 18 Qh6! is clever
Jul-24-14  ScottElliott: A decisive thrashing by White. It seems like 9 Nf5 is the refutation of 8 ... Qb6. White just gets too much for the pawn "sac".

  FSR: <ScottElliott> White does get a lot of play for the sacrificed pawn, but this game is by no means the last word of theory. See Opening Explorer. For one thing, 11...Kg7 isn't even the main line; 11...Nxd5 is.
Jul-28-14  ScottElliott: Thanks FSR, will check it out.
Aug-26-15  dusk: <FSR> There's a dangerous bishop fork at d4 if black king is to recapture the knight after 11... Nxd5. The black knight that defends it can be eliminated by the bishop or pawn. I know the white knight has no safe square to land but if it goes to h4 white's pawn structure and king safety will be damaged massively upon its recapture. Am I mistaken?

  FSR: <dusk> 11...Nxd5 12.Bxd5 Kxg7 13.Bxc6 Qc3+! saves Black.
Aug-27-15  dusk: <FSR> Oh I missed that. Thank you
Aug-27-15  parisattack: Another nice win by the Magician from Zolotonosha.
