Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-13-13  superstoned: White traded off her DSB for a knight, leaving black's king feeling much safer, despite the scary open h file and menacing light diagonal g8-a2.
Dec-29-13  aleman911: Fantastic!
Dec-29-13  aleman911: What was the mistake of white?
Dec-31-13  superstoned: <aleman911> I'd die a happy man if I could learn to attack half as well as GM Judit Polgar.

I've lately been studying the Dragon and usually Black plays (after ...Bd7 and ...Rc8 in response to 9.Bc4 of the Yugoslav) Nc6-e5-c4. Here Black plays Nc6xd4.

Now White envisioned her attack down the h-file maybe expecting her opponent to accept the kingsbishop sacrifices. Of course he never had to take the piece and GM Polgar lightened Black's defensive task when she left the Dragon bishop unchallenged.

Jan-15-14  aleman911: The computer said that the first mistake was 36.Qg1. Unbelieve it! Until this was draw.
