Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-09-14  Karpova: According to the annotator (on 6...Qe7), Schlechter considers <6...d6 7.0-0 a6 8.Ba4 b5 9.Bb3 Na5> to be better.

The annotator calls 9...Nd8 artificial (<gekünstelt>, suggesting <9...Ne8> and then either <...f5> or <...g6 ...Ng7>. White's position after 9...Ne8 10.Nd5 Qd8 11.Qg3 looks fine, though.

The annotator calls 15...c5 immediately ruinous, but that no satisfying defense was available. Black may have tried 15...Qe6.

16.d5 received an <!>, burying the ♘d8, but 16.Nd5 looks also interesting.

16...a6 was played to prepare <...Ng8>, which was not possible yet: <16...Ng8 17.Qxe7 Nxe7 18.Nb5 Nc8 19.Nh4 Kg8 20.Nf5>.

18...g6 was not annotated, but looks like an imprecision. Perhaps 18...b5 instead.

21...Qe8<?> is immediately decisive. The annotator suggests <21...Re8>, maybe 21...Ra7 was also better.
