Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-10-04  ughaibu: In a game of under 15 moves it's unreasonable to expect the clash of deep and conflicting strategies to be decided by profound tactics, nevertheless this game has it's charm.
Nov-12-11  Sem: 14. bxc3, Ne4+.
Nov-12-11  lost in space: Nice early in the week puzzle with Black to move after 13. Qa3

  fredthebear: 12.Kd2?! It appears the king received free tickets on short notice and rushed off. Actually, he's concerned about losing a tempo to the sacrificial discovery 12...Nd3+ that would collect his unprotected queen. Thus, the odd move avoids being put in check.

<Sem> Agreed. The exchange sacrifice 13...RxNc3 removes the defender. It's likely that 14.AnyxRc3 is met by 14...Ne4+.

What's more, declining to recapture the Black rook is futile. 14.Qa1 is still met by 14...Ne4+ 15.Ke1 Nc2#.
