Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-13-16  CountryGirl: 15...c5 or 15...ed followed by 16...c5 is probably a better idea.
Jul-14-16  Sokrates: Spontaneously, I feel that 22.-b4 is a positional mistake. He should have prepared this obligatory queenside attack more carefully, perhaps with a rook on c8, a knight on c5 - try not to fixate the pawns as is the result with b4,

15. ..Qc8 is also interesting.

Jul-14-16  JohnBoy: Why the resignation? Black is clearly worse, but what is white's win? I'm looking at Qb3 and trying to enter the black king's house.
Jul-17-16  ChemMac: <JohnBoy> On a quick look; the end could be 35...Qc7 36.Qb3 Qb8 37. g3 h5 38 Nf7 Bh6 39.Nd8
Jul-20-16  talljack: Are we sure he resigned? Maybe the clock?
Jul-21-16  Conrad93: I'm not sure if it makes much difference, but I would prefer playing 16...c6 instead of 16...Bg7.

It's a common idea in the Breyer and delays White from playing ...d5.
