Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-11-11  Shams: Black is losing the exchange after white nips the bishop.
Apr-11-11  DanielBryant: <Shams> I see White winning the exchange if Black takes with the queen, but am I missing something obvious after 22.Nxg7 Nxg7?
Apr-11-11  Shams: <DanielBryant> I only looked as far as 22.Nxg7 Nxg7 23.g5:

One way or another, a disaster on the h4-d8 diagonal is on the menu.

Apr-11-11  DanielBryant: I know I'm most likely tilting at a windmill here, but I'm looking at 23.g5 f5 for Black, as Black prevents an immediate disaster on that diagonal and either clears the f or g file for a modicum of counterplay.
Apr-11-11  Shams: <DanielBryant> Ok, you made me look it up. Shredder likes 22.Na4 Qc7 before 23.Nxg7 and 24.Rxf6, for a ~two pawn edge.
Apr-12-11  Skakalec: I would rather play Bh6 and take that pawn on f6.
Dec-26-13  vikram2791: My chess coach is Black.
