Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-12-09  mertangili: Yes i also agree that this game is not very exciting for a GOTD. But still no kibitzing is a bit too much.

I belive 20...Ne4 was a serious mistake as it leads to the unfavourable exchange od the queen for a rook and a bishop. 20....Rc7 21. Rfb1 Qc8 and the game goes on with white's advantage but at least there is no immadiate loss of material.

Aug-12-09  National Master Dale: I was almost thinking the exact same thing sorta boring for a game of the day .

I also thought 20...Ne4 was woops but now i`m not so sure . Maybe black can play 21...Qa5 though I don`t have a computer to check with.

Aug-12-09  Jason Frost: Maybe there is some back story to this game, because there is really nothing special about the game itself.

<20...Ne4> is just a flat blunder

Maybe black is slightly worse, because he has been overly passive all game, but after something like

<20...Rc7 21. Rfb1 Nf5 22. Bg5 h6 23. Bf4 Bd6>

black is perfectly fine.

Aug-12-09  Gouvaneur: The game is not that bad.
It shows the problems Black face, when playing a game with the Karlsbader setup. You get weaknesses on the Queenside, White gets open files on the Queenside to operate on, and Black can hardly initiate any counterplay. I agree that Black played bad, but it's not rare that Black just underestimate these structures, and/or is not farmiliar with them.
Aug-12-09  birthtimes: 18...Rc8 allowed White to press the initiative. Better for Black was 18...Bxd3 thereby exchanging Black's bad bishop for White's strong bishop, or 18...Qc8 thereby defending the b7 square, overprotecting the f5 square, and creating opportunities for further exchanges of minor pieces after 19...Nd7 or 19...Bxd3.

Aug-12-09  lzromeu: Sac for nothing.
This "queen sac" (forced) looks like mines.
OK. The cause was 20...Ne4. I see this. Nf5 was better
Aug-12-09  WhiteRook48: 20...Ne4??
