Kibitzer's Corner
May-22-11  estrick: This first 12 moves of this game are given as "Supplementary Variation" #10, p. 37 in Chess Openings Theory & Practice by I. A. Horowitz.

8. fxe5 appears to be White's first weak move. In the CG data base White has won 11/13 times with 8. c3

May-22-11  estrick: 23. ...Rc1+ seems unnecessary.

Wouldn't 23. ...Nf2+ be more efficient? -the rook would stay on the 7th rank menacing pawns, and the knight could capture the rook with tempo if the White king decides to leave the first rank.

May-15-19  sneaky pete: Why would white play something stupid like 23.Rd3? .. in the first place? It's true that the tournament book gives this move, but I think it's a typo and the more sensible if still insufficient 23.Rd2 ..

was really played.
