Apr-06-05  Runemaster: What a remarkable game! This is a great example of what an innovator Breyer was.

Right from the opening, he never seems to do the expected thing. There are so many nice tactical points that I wouldn't know where to begin listing them.

White could have resigned earlier, but it was nice to see the very unusual 2Q's vs R and 2Bs situation played out. At the end, if 47.Kf2, then 47...Q(4) x e3 wins a piece.

White(!) is completely winning after convincing play. But here he goes astray in only a few moves. There are several moves that keep the advantage: 32.♗c2, 32.♗b1 (Marco), 32.d6 or 32.♖d1. The text move 32.h4 does not blunder the win, but after 32.. e4 the move 33.♘c2?? does! It was absolutely okay to execute the threat: 33.hxg5, because 33.. ♕a1 34.♖f1 ♕xf1+ 35.♘xf1 b1=♕ 36.d6! +-:

where the two queens are helpless!

And Salwe's could still have saved half a point, but he played two more blunders in the two following moves: 33.hxg5? and 34.g6?.

33.♘e3 and 33.♔h2 would kept him in the game, and 34.♗xe4 would have give some hope (though he would end up with two pieces and some pawns against the queen after 34.. ♕xe1+ 35.♘xe1 ♕e2 etc.).
