Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-11-13  DrAttitude: Judit! Judit!! Get rid of the isolani in an even trade. Do not lose the isolani without compensation! Review Kasparov vs Karpov. Kasparov learned that against Karpov and did not make the same mistake again. You are so good. I hate to see you lose in this way.

  HeMateMe: The isolani can lead to enhanced attacking chances, as it hems in a Bishop, for awhile. Polgar is an attack specialist, these positions suit her.

But, you have to get some compensation or initiative for the bad pawn, and her opponent just drained the position and left her with a weak pawn.

Aug-11-13  Marmot PFL: 14...Bxf3 looks like an amateur mistake at first glance, I wonder what the reason for it is.
Aug-11-13  Boomie: 10...Bg4 is too ambitious. This bishop should go to e6 to hold d5 until ready to push d4. 12...Bh5 is bad for the same reason. The bishop should go to e6. Finally 14...Bxf3 is a strategic blunder. The two bishops are vital to create counterplay around an isolani.
Aug-12-13  Karpova: Her first serious classical game this year (her only other serious event was Geneva Chess Masters (2013) which was rapid).
Aug-13-13  csmath: Judit played this line against Kramnik in 2010 (not in this database) with a draw. Ortiz-Suarez simply followed that but Judit deviated with 11. ... Rc8.

This is when Ortiz-Suarez played a "new" move

12. h3

but they transposed to position after 13 moves that has been tried in the past half a dozen times and every single time black lost.

14. Bxf3?

is obviously new move albeit an error.

Judit was going for tactics.

This is all bad, for example

17. Nxd5 Rd8?

losses to 18. b4! (with b5 to follow) but this is not what Ortiz-Suarez played (it is actually fairly difficult to calculate all), he played

18. Bxe5?

and gets "only" a pawn out of the melee. Black has a meager if any compensation by holding d-file but this is really nothing she could use. The position after 50 moves is completely lost and Soarez-O has nicely put an end to it.

Aug-13-13  ColdSong: Infamous game,which remembers me when the great Tal was losing here and there some games pitifully,without an only hope of complicate somewhere.Anyway,bravo GM Suarez.
Aug-13-13  epistle: Pity not the once great, but those who never were.
