Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-18-08  Karpova: Nice exchange sacrifice on move 15 (according to Rybka 3 from chessok a novelty) removing a central pawn and White's good bishop.

According to Rybka 3 White made the following mistakes: 24.c5?! (instead of 24.Nb3)
25.Qe1?! (instead of 25.Qd1)
31.f4? (instead of 31.c6)
32.Nb3?! (instead of 32.Rxc3)

Black missed 33...Qf7! (though 32...Nxc1 was not bad). The whole line goes: 33...Qf7 34.Nd4 Nxc1 35.Rxc1 Qd5 36.Qd1

White resigned a bit too early. Rybka 3 comments: <Looks like white still could play in this game. It is un-pretty. But black should find some proper moves to be able win.>
