Kibitzer's Corner
May-25-05  farrooj: It's good to notice how powerful white's pieces are compared to Black's..
Jul-12-05  howardtheduck: I have to pay attention to 9exf6 because i dont fully understant it...
Jul-12-05  howardtheduck: It seem to me the it is only loosing a pawn. it does not help the bishop get to e5 and it helps black develop the queen on white kind side...
Jul-12-05  refutor: 9.exf6 is playable but not the strongest

9.Nxg5 is the strongest move in this position

Jul-12-05  howardtheduck: <refutor>
9 nxge, hxg5
10 bxg5, ...
Black must move his bishop and try save the pin, but i agree nxg5 offers a lot more possibility


Jul-12-05  refutor: he can't save the pin

9.Nxg5 hxg5 10.Bxg5 there is no way to save the bishop. "theory" continues 10. ...Nbd7 11.exf6 Bb7 12.g3 c5 13.d5 Qb6 14.Bg2 O-O-O 15.O-O b4

after 10. ...Be7 11.exf6 Bxf6 12.Bxf6 Qxf6 13.g3 Black has released all the tension in the position and White is just better

Jul-12-05  howardtheduck: <refutor> I time to look at your line and it seem to me that 8. ...,g5 should be avoided before Nbd7 then 9,..., g5 am I right?
Jul-12-05  refutor: unfortunately 8. ...g5 must be played because the e-pawn is attacking the knight
Jan-19-10  Everett: 9.exf6 is no weaker than the main line. Take a look at the results among GMs in the database, especially the line with 12.Be2
