Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-24-04  diablotins: Isn't winning for white ?
Jun-03-05  silvio: did white lose in time ?
how can black win this game?
Jun-03-05  aw1988: No, this is certainly won for white.
Aug-03-05  Kelvieto: Does anyone know the reason for the loss?

  Willem Wallekers: White lost on time,
no doubt about it.
Aug-03-05  fgh: I doubt white lost on time, since he was the last who moved a piece.

  Willem Wallekers: The move isn't completed until the clock is pressed.
Aug-04-05  aw1988: Some things never change. The dreaded 5. Nc3 which appears to be a new tabyia.
Aug-07-05  Ernesto7: why not 19.g5 ?
It looks strong for white and doesn't it win a piece?
Aug-07-05  psmith: <Ernesto7> 19. g5 hxg5 and now if 20. fxg5 Qxf2 it's Black who's won a piece.
Feb-09-06  filipecea: <The dreaded 5. Nc3 which appears to be a new tabyia.> I favour this line as White. I think it is the only way to get out of the drawish lines of the Petroff Defence, although still a boring game.. And yes, you're right, 5.Nc3 appears to be a new tabyia.

<tabyia> at least if google was right in telling me what this word actually mean. lol :p

Mar-18-07  Poisonpawns: Nothing new about 5.Nc3 see Nimzowitsch vs Marshall, 1914 Marshalls plan was actually better than Kramniks!
Mar-18-07  vonKrolock: 53...♖e2 54.a7 ♖c2 55.♔d5 ♖a2 56.♖g2! ♖a7 57.♔c6 ♖a5 58.♖g7) etc and White wins (barebrain line)
May-04-10  jeremyh20man: Thanks vonKrolock!
Oct-23-16  RookFile: Too bad. This was a good game by Huebner and he deserved better than this.

So it does.

<Poisonpawns: Nothing new about 5.Nc3....>

No-one ever claimed the move itself is new; merely that it is a new tabiya.

Oct-23-16  Granny O Doul: Blitz game. It happens. Also, is 5. Nc3 still considered a new tabiya, or is it yesterday's news?

  Retireborn: In NiC 2005/6, Kramnik references this game and says that (contra Chessbase) it was a Kramnik-Huebner game which ended 1-0.

Correction slip submitted.

  Retireborn: White did actually win this game, according Kramnik in NiC
