From Chess Today 3043

<Beware: Blunder!

by GM Alex Baburin

Most big tournaments provide plenty
of material for this column and the
European Championship in Budva is
no exception. Here are two examples
from round 2:


L. Petovic (2052) - Chudinovskikh
(2379), European Ch Budva (2), 2009

White stands much better and after
20.Qxf6 Rg8 21.Be4 he should be
able to win the game. But
unfortunately for him, he decided to
push away the enemy knight:
20.g3?? Qxf3+! 0–1.>

20 g2-g3??

And White is mated due to his <WEAK BACK RANK>.

Mar-09-09  jon01: Nice mate, white's queenside development cost him the game.
Mar-09-09  Shams: <white's queenside development cost him the game.>

GM Baburin seems to disagree with you

Mar-09-09  jon01: I am sure his analyses are the best, but I just think that the knight shouldn't stay on b1 for so long time.
