Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-23-04  InspiredByMorphy: 13. Qd3 looks better to me. White is up a pawn, so why not defend?
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <InspiredByMorphy> Agreed, although after 13. Qd3 Bxc3 14. Qxc3 Qxf2 Black regains the Pawn with an even game (15. Nd4 Rac8). Perhaps 13. Qd2 instead defending f2, and if 13 ... Rfd8 14. Qe3 consolidates for the moment. Note 26. Qe3?? Bd4 and if 27. Ne4 Qc6 wins material.
Jun-24-04  Cyphelium: <tpstar & IBM> On 13. Qd2, why not the same as was suggested against 13. Qd3? 13.- Bxc3 and since 14. bxc3 doesn't look like much of an option (14. bxc3 Rfd8 15. Qe3 Rxd1+ loses the pawn again, as does 15. Qg5 Rxd1+ 16. Rxd1 Bxe4, while 15. Qe2 Bb5 16. Rxd8+ Rxd8 17. Qe3 Qa5 18. Kb2 Bc4 19. a3 Rd6 is also awkward), white plays 14. Qxc3 and then black wins the pawn back by 14.- Qxf2.
Dec-14-06  arminsson: tpstar, 27. - Qd1 wins easily while Bd4 wins no material.

  tpstar: <arminsson> After 26 ... Qd1+ 27. Qc1 how does Black continue? And what is White's response to 26 ... Bd4 instead? Thank you.
Dec-15-06  arminsson: tpstar, 26....Bd4 yields nothing: 27. Ne4 Qc6, 28. Qb3 etc. But after 27. Qc1 Qxf3, threatening Rd1 and eyeing the rook on b7, white is in serious trouble. By the way, how do you write those parentheses around "arminsson" ... stupid question I know, sorry.
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <arminsson> Thanks, you are right on both counts. Note after 26 ... Qd1+ 27. Qc1 Qxf3 then 28. Rd7? is out due to 28 ... Qf5+.

Just use angle brackets <whenever <you <need <which <will <create <any <desired <color> change> to> really> fill> out> your> messages> here>
