Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-04-06  ianD: Great spot. Bc5 exploits all the weaknesses in black position!
Premium Chessgames Member
  hesyrett: Black ruined her position with the lemon 9...b6. Ancient theory, predating the "St. George" attack (Bc4 and f3 for White), shows Black at least equalizing with 9...Be6 10. f4 Qc8! (Tartakover's move) followed by ...Rd8, ...e5 and ...d5. White's N on b3 is out of play, but he loses time if he returns it to d4 to hassle Black's QB (which is aiming at c4 anyhow). Finally, Black's Q on c8 guards b7 against discoveries from White's KB, should White move it to f3.
Jul-13-08  vintage geisha: I think this is an amazing move. Her play is stylishly aggressive. Love how she uses position over material.
Mar-06-15  rodantero: After 15.fxe5 black is already toasted, surely white saw 18.Nc5 (and the rest of the combination, not played in the game because of black's resignation) when he played 15.fxe5.
