Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-12-13  csmath: Standard Polugaievsky Kan setup for white. Somewhat defensive play by Andreikin, this is more in his usual playing style.

15. Bf1?!

[the first new move but this is hardly anything special. To protect from Nb4 white could have played first Rd2 and then Be2 or Bf1.]

Now Andreikin decides on queenside countergame leaving white in charge of center.

21. ...f5!?
22. exf5?!

[22. Qh3 looks much stronger with plan of Nc2-Ne3. If black plays 22. ...Nb4, 23. Nc2 Nxc2, 24. Rxc2 white is clearly better.]

And for some reason Motylev surprisingly decides on repetition of moves. Black position looks somewhat solid but white should definitely continue to play for a win.
