Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-17-02  bishop: 15.e6! unexpected and strong.
Nov-07-06  themindset: I'm not sure how strong it really is... what is the continuation after 15...bxa3!
Nov-07-06  Cyphelium: <themindset> I think it actually is strong: 15.- bxa3 16. exd7+ ♗xd7 17. ♕e3+ and now

17.- ♔d8 18. ♗xc6 ♕xc6 19. ♘e5 ♕e6 20. ♕xa7 looks pretty hopeless.

17.- ♔f8 18. ♗xc6 ♗xc6 (18.- ♕xc6 19. ♘e5) 19. ♘e5 ♕e6 20. ♕c5+ ♔f8 21. ♘xc6 wins.

17.- ♘e7 18. ♘e5 and white will take something on d7 or f7, for example 18.- ♕f6 19. ♗xf7+ ♔d8 20. ♘xd7 .

Nov-07-06  themindset: 16.exf7+ is strong for black.

16.exf7+ Kd8 17.Qa4 Bb7 18.Be4 Qe6 19.Bxc6 Bxc6 20.Qxa5 Bxf3 21.gxf3 Rb7 22.Qxa3 Qxf7

Nov-07-06  themindset: And 16.exd7+ is terrible for white, after your line 17...Kf8 18.Bxc6 Bxc6 18.Ne5 it is mate in one for black.
Nov-08-06  TrueFiendish: Gee, strong player this Mortimer...
Nov-08-06  Cyphelium: <themindset> That's the nonsense you sometimes get when analysing without a board. Sorry.
Jan-06-09  YoungEd: It's interesting here that Black plays 11. ...♖b8 with the idea of the subsequent push of the b-♙, when White can just ignore it! Poor Mortimer.
