Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-14-14  Karpova: This game was played in the 1st Class tournament (<Turnier 1. Klasse>) of the St. Petersburg Chess Society.

On 7.Ng3, the annotator mentions Znosko-Borovsky vs S F Lebedev, 1903 for an interesting, but incorrect sacrifice (15.Nxf7).

Instead of 12...Nf6, Black had the interesting option 12...Bxf3 13.Qxf3 (13.gxf3 Qg5) 13...Ne5.

16...Rhf8, the annotator mentions <16...Bxd3 17.Qxd3 c5>.

21...e5 looks like an interesting possibility.

25...fxe5 doesn't appear best, maybe <25...Rxd4 26.Rxb8+> Kxb8 27.Rb3+ Rb4 28.axb4 fxe5 and Black may put up some resistance.

26.exd5 was possibly stronger.

27...c4 was not annotated, but looks weak. Perhaps 27...cxd4, to make c5 available to the ♕.
