Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-07-03  drukenknight: Another Algaier. I think maybe it was Bird that invented the f3 move, it seems to work if white plays d4.

What about: 17 h5 to create a mating spot for the Q?

Feb-07-03  Cyphelium: I think that the position after 16 moves looks very promising for black.

17.h5 seems a bit slow and also surrenders the g5 square to black, which means that white will have a tough time breaking through there.

Black might play 17.- cxd4 18.cxd4 and then I fail to see anything convincing for white after 18.- Qb6. If 19. 0-0-0 then 19.- Bg5 and black starts to take over the initiative. If 19. g5 Bxg5 20. Nf3, then the exchange sac 20.- Rxf3 21. Qxf3 Qxd4 seems good enough.

Feb-07-03  drukenknight: Cyph I was thinking: 17.h5 cxd4 18. Qd3
Feb-08-03  Cyphelium: I'll still go for 18. -Qb6.
Apr-04-08  Knight13: <drukenknight: Another Algaier. I think maybe it was Bird that invented the f3 move, it seems to work if white plays d4.> Not here. 7. Bc4+ and then taking on f3 is better.
