Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-28-03  kingspawn: is 14. Bxe6 correct?
Feb-28-03  pawntificator: Do you mean: is the score correct? Or do you mean is it a theoretically sound move? It appears to be correct.
Feb-28-03  kingspawn: but what if black had played 16. ...Bc8?
Mar-02-03  mdorothy: I'm thinking along the lines of 'sacing' the exchange.. not really, but anyways, 17. Rxd6 Qxd6, and maybe something crazy like Nc7 with double check.. That would get white the exchange back.. maybe some attacking chances.. I'm really not sure without really taking a lot of time and analysing.
Mar-03-03  Cyphelium: 16.- Bc8 17. Qb6 might be one idea.
Mar-13-04  Andrew Chapman: 16...Bc8 How about Rxd6 defending the knight and if Qxd6 then Nc7+ winning the rook and leaving white two pawns up and a better position. (I think)
