Dec-07-04  chess man: The enemy king is trapped...nowhere to run!!!
Apr-13-05  gogulko: The following notes are from a conversation with Boris Gulko. Any errors, in transcription or otherwise, are mine, not Boris's.

( 11. … Nh5 12. Qd3 dxc3 ( 12. … Ne5 13. Qd1! (attacking the knight)13. … Nf6 14. cxd4 ) 13. Qxc3 (best - Gulko:( 13. Qd5 not good - Guilko: 13. … Ne5 14. f4 Nf6 ) 13. … Ne5 14. f4 )

May-01-06  whatthefat: A nice example of conducting an attack on a king trapped in the centre.

  technical draw: This game was played in the year Teschner was awarded the IM title, yet playing against Tal makes him look like a class C player.

  wwall: Perhaps 15...Nxd5 16.exd5 Qf5 17.Bg7 Rg8 18.Bxd4 Qxd5 is better for Black.

Perhaps 19...Ne6 20.Bxe6 fxe6 21.Rac1 Qb6 22.Bg7 Rg8 23.Bxf6 Bxf6 24.Qxd6 c5 25.Qxb6 Rxb6 26.Rxc5 might hold for Black.

If 20.dxe5, then 21.fxe5 Nxe5 22.Qe2 is strong for White.

Perhaps better may by 21...Nxe5 22.Qe2 f6 23.Bg7 Ndf7 (23...Rg8 24.Ne4 dxe4 25.Bxg8 gxf5 26.Rxf5 favors White) 24.Bxh8 Nxh8 25.Rac1 Qd4 26.Nf3 Nxf3 27.Rxf3 Nf7 28.Rxc6 Ne5 29.Re6 Rb6 30.Rxb6 Qxb6 and unclear to me.

Instead of 23...dxe4?, perhaps 23...Qd4 24.Nd6+ Bxd6 25.exd6 Nfe6.

After 25.Rcd1, if 25...Nfe6, then 26.Bxe6 fxe6 27.Qh5+ Nf7 28.Qxf7 mate.

  FSR: I remember Shamkovich, in an article in <Chess Life>, mentioning the trap 12.Bh6 Nxe4? 13.Bd5!! Nxg3 14.Bxc6+ Qd7 15.Bxd7+ Kxd7 16.fxg3 and wins.

  FSR: ChessBase has two games where Black played 12.Bh6 Nxe4?, but in both of them White missed the winning move 13.Bd5!!, and only drew.
