Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-04-02  bishop: 11.Nb5 was agressive but maybe 11.exd6 was simpler. I did not particularly like 14.Bxa6, giving up a Bishop for a Knight on the rim. 22.Re7 was also agressive but probably incorrect. Anyway the d-pawn was in trouble.
Dec-04-02  drukenknight: what about 23 Rxf7?

  Sneaky: Cute trap DK but I think 23...Qxd6 would refute it
Dec-05-02  drukenknight: 24 Rxa7 then I guess.
Dec-04-04  kostich in time: Donner was terrible against the Russians, but at his best, he was very dangerous.

  hesyrett: Lev Psakhis in his book "The Complete Benoni" recommends 11. exd6, judging that White has a small advantage after 11... a6 12. a4 Ndf6 13. O-O.  He doesn't mention 11. Nb5 but I agree with "bishop" that it's a bridge too far.
