Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-07-04  acirce: "Oops"
Jun-07-04  Calculoso: Note after 13. Bh5 there is no point in continuing for black as the queen is lost.
Jun-07-04  Calculoso: and if 12. ... h6 13. Bxe7 wins a piece. For black, f6 and d6 do not trap in the bishop as f6 falls to Bh5 pinning queen to king and the d6 pawn can simply be taken.
Jun-07-04  acirce: Exactly. Probably Black's idea was the silly trap 12. Bxe7?? Nf3+
Aug-10-04  cvcs68: This is a shocking play by black - at this level - nyet!!
Aug-10-04  seattlebookdude: Can black not salvage something with 12. ...Nf5 13. exf5 Qxf5, or am I overlooking something really obvious here?
Aug-10-04  seattlebookdude: Granted, being a piece down to a mid-2500 player without a pressing attack to show for it is still a bleak situation. But black's queen is out of the woods, and not that badly placed. I'm not sure I'd have given up just yet. But what do I know?
Mar-12-09  WhiteRook48: don't bring out the queen early
Jul-04-09  wk42: Of course, 12.♗xe7? ♘f3+!
Black hunts the queen.
Jul-04-09  levizki: Yes, Black probably sticked so much to this White's wrong idea, that he missed the real threat.

The only hope was 11...f6. I guess it's quite sensible move anyway. If 12. e5 f5 and if 12. Be2 Qxg5, so it looks that Black can hold. Am I missing something?

Mar-14-14  Poisonpawns: "Phil A. Buster"
