Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-06-09  A.G. Argent: While the final position ain't particularly hopeless for White, it is fairly problematic. Options to break out and begin to even dream of counter-play are few. First off, you'd think ya gotta try to disperse a Knight or two. 17.c3 dislodges the d4 Knight but if he went 17...Nf5 threatening Nh4 or Ng3 and it's even direr straits. And Loewy's f3 Knight is more than just pinned, it's also keeeping Black's Queen off of an h4 check and rumblings of a mating net. If after 17.c3 Nf5 18.Qb3, then 18...b6, ending that prospect because 19.Bxd5 cxe5 threatens the precarious e4 Knight. 17.Bxd4 Bxd4 threatens the a1 Rook but worse, simultaneously pins the e4 Knight. The least immediately troublesome dodge of just trading pieces with 17.Bxd5 Qxd5 places Schlecter's Queen into a greater prominence. So I dunno, this guy Loewy Jr. seemed to be having a tough go of it in general there in Vienna, and maybe was just plain short on confidence and wanted no more of it. Whatever.
