Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-06-10  Rama: It is just a minor game but it caught my notice.

Interesting sequence from 16. Qf4? ..., to 21. ... g5? I see no good followup to 16. ... fxe5, and I think Rotlewi was hoodwinked: 17. Bxh7+ Kxh7, 18. Qh4+ Kg8, 19. Ng5 Nf6!, since 20. dxe5 ..., is covered.

Facing a mobile central majority Dr Vidmar plays defensively from 17. Ng6 ..., to 21. Re3 ..., guarding against the push e6>e5>e4, when black plays 21. ... g5? fatally weakening his kingside. (21. ... Nc4, 22. Bxc4 Bxc4, 23. a3 Rac8, is much better.)

The pressure resulted in 43. ... Rxc3?? dropping a piece.

Apr-13-11  Rama: I saw 16. Qf4 fxe5, 20. Bxh7+ Kxh7, 21. Ng5+ ..., and now the f7-square becomes the focus of attack. If white can play Nf7 with check he has the black Queen, provided he can move his own in the meanwhile.
