Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-23-07  zluria: This was a razor-sharp opening. When I see games like this, I wonder whether it was home preparation, and if so, how much.
Aug-23-07  zluria: My computer seems to think that 14. Bxa1 was a mistake, recommending Kxf7 instead, preserving equality (fritz). If true, this seems to indicate that black wasn't familiar with the position by move 14.
Aug-25-07  aragorn69: It seems it was opening preparation. At least, Mig thinks so... : <Alekseev beat Wang Yue in the crazy Slav line we saw recently in Berkes-Harikrishna and Bluvshtein-Miton. Both of those games followed the computer recommendations on the 12th move (0-0 or Ke2) but Alekseev instead sacrificed a full rook for a dominating knight, menacing passed pawn, and the bishop pair. It quickly paid off. In hindsight, Black should have left the exchange alone and taken the knight on move 14. A nice piece of analysis by Alekseev.>
