Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-29-12  Qweenlover: A fantastic domination by White.
Mar-29-12  haydn20: Which shows why 11...Nf6 is such a clunker. Opening Ex. has 11...b6 12. Qg4 Kf8 13. b3. This line is so passive it takes a Karpov to play it!
Mar-29-12  rilkefan: Why not 10...Nf6? Why not 14...Nd5? (My first thought, 14...Bd6, is bad after Qg3.)
Mar-29-12  arsen387: looks like after 14...Nd5 it goes 15.Bxc7 Bxh4 16.Bxb6 Bxf7 (otherwise blacks simply lose a pawn) 17.Rxf7 axb6 18.Ne5 and both f7 and c6 pawns are under attack. though looks like simple 16.Be5 is also efficient
Mar-29-12  arsen387: by the way, the quiet 18.Qh3 is a very powerful move, Ng6! is threatened with fatal consequences. Blacks only defense seems castling kingside which they did, but then it's just a question of time when will white's attack crash through
