Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-11-04  patzer2: Van Wely, who is offering to go three pawns down after 19. b4!!, has a surprise win in this position because of a hidden or disguised "pin" and "double attack."

The disguised "pin" and a "skewer" attack are evident after 19. b4!! Bxb4 20. Rb1 a4 21. a3 Bc3 22. Rb8+ Ke7 23. Rxa8 .

The hidden "double attack" reveals itself in the game continuation after 21. Qc2! Bxb4 22. Qa4+, winning the unprotected Bishop.

Aug-11-04  Knezh: What about 21. ..Qd7 followed by c5?
Aug-11-04  patzer2: <Knezh> After 21...Qd7, White wins with 22. Qc3!

  fredthebear: 19.b4!! is quite a find.

After the alternative 19...Re5 20.Bxc6+ Kf8 21.f4 R moves, and White dominates the light squares as well as threatens Rd8+.

  perfidious: The line given by <patzer2> is a droll method: Black imagines he has found succour on the queenside, only to learn that his real problem is the lack of development on the K-wing. Ruination follows.
