Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-05-08  tranquil simplicity: Hi Guyz! I feel that 'Black' was doing well until move 13...Nc6?.. that is I feel black should not have retreated! His fear of losing the Knight on g4 was perhaps unjustified. He could have hit the pawn on c2 at move 13 with the Knight on b4 and continued vigorously with a good game.
Feb-27-08  Alphastar: <He could have hit the pawn on c2 at move 13 with the Knight on b4 and continued vigorously with a good game.> After 13. ..Nxc2? 14. Nxc2 Bxc2 15. Bxg4 Bxd1 16. Bxd1 white is up 2 pieces for a rook and a pawn and has a winning advantage.

13. ..Nc6 is perfectly good.
