Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-22-14  Karpova: This game from the Trebitsch Memorial was played on January 4, 1910.

14.Bd3 looks fine, but Adolf Zinkl ('Neue Freie Presse', 1910.03.19) claims that <14.Qe1> was essentially better as it preventes ...Qa5. It does that, but it doesn't seem to do much else, especially as ...Qa5 is not a threat. He awards 15.f3 an <!>, as the initiation of a complicated combination, where <15.Qc2> would have allowed to go for an innocuous end. But <15.Qc2> looks stronger.

Zinkl cites analysis showing that, instead of 17.Bd6, <17.Qh4> was stronger. The line goes <17.Qh4 f5 18.Bd6> but then Black should play 18...Ba6 immediately (the analysis proceeds with the blunder <18...Bxf8>) and White doesn't seem to have an advantage. 17.Rb5 is also a move worth considering.

Stronger than 19...Ba6 was <19...Qd2>, which is also mentioned by Zinkl who gives <19...Qd2 20.Bxf1 Qxe3+ 21.Kh1 Kxf8 22.Qd8+ Qe8 23.Qxd5 Be6 24.Qb7> with about equal chances, though Black's position looks clearly preferable (24...Qc8 coming next). The incorrect move is met with an inaccuracy, 20.Bxa6, when <20.Bxg7> was best as Zinkl mentions.
