Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-03-12  Jafar219: Just brilliant.
Sep-03-12  rilkefan: Stockfish suggests the surprising 22...Nd3 as -2. The point is that if Bxd3 then the d6 pawn can't immediately advance, and after ...Bxf5 the black queen either gets a good post on f5 or (if say Bf1) a6. Thus black has time to play ...Qd7 and free the rook to defend d8.

In view of the unpleasantness black ran into opening the kingside, it suggests 24...Qa6. Here after much thought it decides the black counterattack is -1.3 unless 25.Rxe6, which appears to be even. This all seems very difficult and surely needs deeper analysis than I can provide.

Sep-08-12  Hesam7: I am wondering why Black did not opt for the simple 13...c5! 14 Be2 b6 15 O-O Bb7 16 Rad1 Rd8 17 Rfe1 Nf8:

And Black should win this, although it may take some time.
