Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-22-15  zydeco: Nezhmetdinov spent 90 minutes thinking about his 13th move. He badly wanted to take on f6, hoping for a line like 13....Re8 14.Ne4 dxe4 15.Bc4+ Kf8? 16.Ng5 Bxe2 17.Nxh7# but nothing really works for white.

15.Be2! is the key defensive move.

Nov-09-20  amadeus: "The lost two moves brought immense complications to Block. I hod to think o lot, because his moves were quick, and I understood that I could become a victim of home preparation. First, all the lines connected with accepting the sacrifice of the piece should be enumerated. It should be mentioned that in dealing with difficult, tangled, double-edged positions of different kinds, composure and a clear mind are needed. It's very important not to be carried away by the chose for the 'Luck of the mating attack.'

I thought 90 minutes over the next move! Having dealt with variations for the first 15-20 minutes and finding that they were unacceptable, I dove into the position again. The move 13. 0-0-0 strikes the eye at once. But how should the pieces be rearranged successfully after 13...Nd4? I took another 35-40 minutes to find the best defensive moves [it is more difficult to find 'tranquil' moves than the forcing ones). Then I got back to the lines with 13. exf6 again, checked them, and then finally specified the rearranging of the position in the game."
