Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-06-04  InspiredByMorphy: Tal plays the evans gambit ferociously!
Mar-06-04  Brian Watson: Another fascinating one, IBM.

Might black have tried 13..Nf5? The knight at h6 is a liability, since white can wreck black's pawns by Bxh6. Therefore 14.exf5 Qxd5 would be a favorable trade. The move also threatens 14..g6 15.Qg4 Ne3.

Mar-07-04  InspiredByMorphy: 13.Nf5 sounds great to me!
Mar-27-08  DrGridlock: Fritz evaluates the suggested Nf5 continuation as .81, versus .81 for Be6, the move played in the game. So the moves are identical in value.

However, Fritz's suggested continuation of the Nf5 line is:

14 Ng5, Bxg5
15 Bxg5, Qc5
16 Rd1, Nfe7
17 Be3, Qe5
18 Bf4, Be6
19 Bxd6

The suggested continuation, 14 exf5 is much inferior for White by Fritz's evaluation. Fritz sees this line as -1.06, as White's c pawn must eventually fall.
