Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-19-03  Yuri54: Maybe 13. Bxg5+, 14.Kb1 e5 followed by Nc5 and Bb7 and queenside castling
Jul-20-03  Brian Watson: After 13. ... Bxg5+, 14.Kb1 e5, does 15. Ne6 fxe6 16.Qh5+ go anywhere for white? There must be some reason for black not to take on g5, since it seems the most obvious move . . .

Anyway, I liked that Nf5 followed by Nxd5 combo.

  Honza Cervenka: If 13....Bxg5+ 14.Kb1 e5, then 15.Nd5 Qb7 (15...Qc5 16.Ne6 fxe6 17.Qh5+ g6 18.fxg6 ) 16.Qh5 Bd8 17.Ne6 with strong attack.
Sep-20-03  SteveToyne: Black doesnt want to open the kingside up, that's why he doesnt capture on g5 and is also the reason why white sacrifices on move 21.

  kevin86: Lobron goes in for the slam!! OOPS,that's LeBron. Lobron goes in for the king! Got it this time!
Feb-06-04  hickchess99: good one
Feb-06-04  Phoenix: As a 6.Bg5 player, I can say this is the type of game all Bg5 players hope for :D

  Benzol: It wasn't often that Chandler got cleaned up like this. A good game from Lobron.
Apr-03-06  notyetagm: GM John Emms in Starting Out: The Sicilian gives the improvement 19 ... 0-0-0! 20 exd6 ♕b7! as "very unclear".
Oct-26-07  buRnINGbeNd: 13. ...Bxg5
14.Kb1 Ne5
15.Qh5 Qe7
16.Nxe6 Bxe6
17.Bxe6 g6
18.exf7+ Kxf7

is likely to end in a draw. It is a wonder why black would still allow 13. ...Nc5 14.f6 as these lines are still struggling. I think players should wait for better analysis of those lines before they start playing it again.
