drukenknight: Drunk's Nightcap. Something nice and smoother for later in the evening. Since this is Kings Indian week what survey would be complete without looking at this one? the original queen sacrifice line that we've seen played by Tal, and I think Larsen as well.
I would go through the opening and then look closely at move 11. Evans likes the 11 dxc5 move as a good interpolation move, before the sacking commences.
Others play it differently. Bobotsov vs Tal went 11 Nd5 Nxd5 12 Qxa5 Nxe3 13 Rc1 Nxc4
Its fun to play blitz from about move 11 w/ a black player who has never played the Kings Indian. YOu can play it over and over, until you have seen more kings indian variations than you'd seen in a lifetime of tournament chess, then you see some more.
There's a lot of fun hitting the Q w/ certain piece combos. You can do a lot of exploration with that motiff.
I've seen Rook sacks too, although under blitz conditions most of those might be considered, shall we say, "sudden inspirations at the chessboard" rather than any at home analsis.
The next departure pt. on our cruise is 14...Nxc4.
I see no need for this swap of material. I've played it out from here with a different move and have a nice little line to show you.
But I'll let some of the metal monsters take a shot at it first, so I can clean up my mistakes and then post something brilliant.
it looks like 22...Rc8 would be more correct. Maybe?
