Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-08-12  Whitehat1963: Big upset.

What happens if 26. Bxd4?

Feb-08-12  Whitehat1963: Oops! Never mind. I see it now.
Feb-08-12  Whitehat1963: So, where did white first begin to lose this one?
Feb-08-12  Gilmoy: This line is new to me, so I can only give fresh-eyed impressions. But <8.Qd3 9.Nbd2> already looks congested. <12.Qe3> feels like he's just inviting a thousand mosquitoes to swarm him.

<15.c4> invests a pawn and doesn't regain it. (Black <chooses> to return it -- that's a big difference.) White's Ns are timid like <20.Nh3>, Black's are bold like <24..Nxg2>.

White somehow managed to play f4 + d4 <and> lose his e-pawn on e2. That suggests a very early structural flaw. <6.b4> feels like a cheap gimmick (even if book). Black simply "forces" <14.axb6 Rxb6> and wins about three tempi profit.

Maybe <7.b5> requires a4 before Ba3. And if that's too slow, then the whole line looks bad.
