Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-03-08  Eyal: 8.g4!? was first tried in Barbero vs E Vegh, 1988, but never caught on. This plan of developing a quick K-side attack looks a bit crude, but in this game it proves very effective.

Black's troubles seem to be caused by 15...b5? - Qf6, for example, is probably better. 16.Rxh6! should be winning by force, but 19.Bd3! is more accurate than Qh5 as played by Nielsen (e.g. 19...f5 20.Qh5 Rg6 21.Ne5; or 19...Rg6 20.Neg5+ Kg7/g8 21.Bxg6 and the bishop can't be recaptured), since 22...Rg6 instead of bxc4? could have given Black a fighting chance.

Indeed, with <22...Rg6!> Black could still have offered considerable resistance.
