Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-04-04  uzeromay: Why can't white capture the knight on move 23? Did black make that sacrifice with an eye towards three pawns for the knight? If not capturing the knight, what about 23. c3?
Jul-04-04  caballos2: Black gets good compensation for the knight: an open f for the rook and two strong pawns (e and g) on the way to promotion.
Jul-15-06  Tariqov: <uzeromoy> and <caballos2> It was pure tactic,not for compensation, e.g 23fxe4?Qxe4 24.Bd1(24.Bf1Rxf1+ and g2)g2 25Rh2Rf1 26.Rhxg2Rxd1+! and Qxg2 with more material for Black.
Mar-05-13  wachter123680: I think maybe Ahues lost at 21.g3, because he got queen hungry.
