Kibitzer's Corner
May-17-05  dac1990: What is the justification for resigning here?
May-17-05  aw1988: What do you suggest? If Bd3 Qc3+. Bb1 loses a piece. If he leaves the bishop there, it's toast.
May-17-05  Shams: the Bc2 can't move to b1 without dropping its counterpart, and the only way to add to its defense is with 12.Kd2. But the King must back off after ...Qc3+. So, white loses a piece.

So, where did white go wrong? I don't play the advance but Bf1-d3-c2 and then b3 looks too slow. The French must be met energetically!!

May-17-05  Kangaroo: 5. f4 was the first error. The punishment is a lost pawn (at least).
May-12-12  e4 resigns: The open c file shows no mercy
May-12-12  Shams: Ignore my rot of seven years ago.
Jun-27-14  thom0909: Looks like a combination of f4, two move Bd3-c2, and then the two move attempt to flank the other B was to blame. He could have survived some of this, but not all of it. Too slow.
