Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-15-11  Calar: Negi demonstrates the type of attack Black wants to avoid when playing Winawer French.
Premium Chessgames Member
  beenthere240: If black plays 9...c4, do you suppose white sacs the bishop on h7?
Apr-15-11  Calar: Hardly, as knight is still on g1 (instead of f3, which is knight's usual position for h7 bishop sac).

After 9...c4
10. Bxh7+ Kxh7
11. Qh5+ Kg8

Black's kingside looks unpleasant, but I don't see any forcing attack for White (as Black probably has time to counter Nf3-Ng5-Qh7 maneuver). Still, stronger kibitzers might see something I don't.

Apr-15-11  DeepFriedLiver: <Calar> in your line, why not reclaim the piece immediately?

9...c4 10. Bxh7+ Kxh7 11. Qh4+ Kg8 12. Qxe7

Black loses a pawn with no compensation as far as I can tell.

Apr-15-11  DAVI DE RAFE: oru mandanum negiyum pinne njanum
Apr-15-11  Calar: <DeepFriedLiver> Yes, Black loses a pawn with no compensation. That's why I said "stronger kibitzers might see something I don't." :P I'm just embarrased it was something so simple.
Apr-16-11  HolyAvatar: Black didn't prepare his opening well enough and thus lost.
May-06-11  ReikiMaster: 10...Ng6 looks interesting.
