Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-06-04  themindset: this is a very instructive miniature that illustrates how to take advantage of the weaknesses created by a black player seeking immediate exchanges in the french.
Jun-10-04  misguidedaggression: Isn't black better off playing 11...Nc2+
Jun-11-04  Cyphelium: It might be, though it doesn't look too fun for black. 11.- Nc2+ 12. Kd2 f6 (quite forced) 13. Bxd7+ Ke7 14. Qxb7 fxe5 15. Bc6+ Kf6 16. Kxc2 is interesting. Possible is 16.- Rb8 17.dxe5+ Kxe5!? 18. Rhe1+ Kf6 19. Qxa7 and since 19.- Rxb2+ doesn't seem to lead anywhere, black should be losing.
