Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-29-12  optimal play: The novelty 8.b4 signalled White's strategy of advancing his pawns down the Queenside. Black's failure to counter this eventually left him with an extremely cramped position. His Bishop becomes blocked and his Knight makes nine useless moves between 28...Ne5 & 38...Nd8 all the while allowing White to now advance his pawns down the Kingside. 40.fxe5 leaves enough room open for White’s DSB and after 42.Bg3 Black can't prevent the loss of his e-pawn. After that his remaining pawns are sitting-ducks.

  OhioChessFan: Without calculating, 20...Bc8 has got to be better.

  OhioChessFan: Tossed it in Fritz and he wants 20...Be4 or 20..Bxf3. 20...Bxa8 is a blunder.
Jan-30-12  optimal play: 20...Be4 at least gets the Bishop out into the open but I think I prefer 20...Bxf3 because it exchanges a hamstrung Bishop for an active Knight. By the time he gets to 24...Bxe4 it’s too little too late since 25.f3 just pushes it back into the corner.
Apr-13-13  GrahamClayton: Black gets strangled by the White pawns on both sides of the board.
