Candidates - Svidler v Gelfand

  • #1

    Hi, I was just looking at the Svidler - Gelfand match and was wondering why 14 Qh3 wasn't played.  There is probably an obvious refutation, but I can't see it :)

    15...Re8 and if 16.Qh7+ Kf8 is an option, but I prefer the simple ...Nf6.

    Both ways, White gets nothing on the kingside immediately, he has to play for the center.

    I see, thanks for pointing it out.
