Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-07-10  Dr. Funkenstein: Incredibly bold of Can to not only play the King's Gambit, but to further opt for the Knight sac line. Unfortunately, when you're down a piece against a 2680 player it usually doesn't work out so well.
Jan-08-10  extremepleasure2: Had Can played 13. ed6 white would have been in a much better position despite being a piece down. After 13...Bf4 (13...cd6 14. Nb5!) 14. Qf4 cd6 (black can't play 14...Qd6 as the bishop on f5 is hanging) 15 Nb5!. Even after 13.Bc4 Nge7 white still would have been on top if he had played 14. Re1 instead of 14. cd6. After 14. cd6 black gained an important tempo to regroup his forces with 14...Bf4 14 Qf4 Qd6 (now the bishop on f4 is protected by the N on e7).

What a shame. Had Can played 12. cd6 he would have created a big sensation in the tournament by beating a 21st century GM over 2600 with ala Morphy style after giving up a knight on the 5th move.

Jan-08-10  Dr. Funkenstein: why can't white play 15. Qxf5 in your line?

Or is that Nb5 is simply better?

  whiteshark: <Missing his first chance of a direct hit. After 13.exd6 cxd6 14.Nb5, Black would have big problems, as the attempt to protect d6 by 14...Bf8 would fail after 15.d5.>
