Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-31-09  CakeMan: Not really a queen sac, is it? The queen is pinned to the king.
Aug-31-09  nigelsnoru: Right, it's essentially forced. However, I don't see why white won. Is it an incomplete game, or perhaps black lost on time? (3 moves after the time control??)
Jan-25-10  elohah: Notes...
Right off hand, 13...f6 14 Qe4 Bf5
15 Qf3 Nc6 16 e3 Bxh4 17 Rxh4 Kg7
18 Bb5 (18 g4 Nxd4 19 exd4 Be4
20 Qxe4 Re8 21 Nc3 Qxd4 22 Bg2
[22 f3 f5! - with ..Qg1+] 22...Rxe4+
23 Bxe4 Re8 24 Kf1 Rxe4 plus for
Black) 18...Re8 doesn't look
terribly frightening for Black.

And Sassy's continuation, to a
certain extent, looks even better.

42...What an outrageous game - where
White gets away with an enormous
amount of dubious looking ....!


Rubbish, Rubbish, RUBBISH!!
