Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-06-06  blingice: A rather mundane place to resign in, really no cataclysmic explosion to end this game. Why couldn't black's 27 be Rxa2? The only fantastic thing about this game is the huge pawn column, with a tripled pawn form. This has been noted on other games by other people, how these types of pawn structures usually are owned by the loser.
Apr-10-06  blingice: Oh, another question: why couldn't black's 29th be Bxe3?
Apr-11-06  Cyphelium: <blingice> I agree that the queen retreat looks mysterious, but at that point black's game seems to be beyond saving anyway. After 29.- ♗xe3+, then 30. ♖xe3 ♕h5 31. c6 will lead to decisive loss of material for black; 31.- ♗e8 32. c7 ♖a8 33. ♕xe6+ and c8♕ wins or 31.- ♗xc6 32. g4 followed by Qxe6+ wins a piece. On 31.- ♗c8 , the strongest seems to be 32. ♕d3, for example 32. - ♔g7 33. ♕d6 ♖a8 34. ♕e7+ ♔h6 (34.- ♔g8 35. ♖d3) 35. g4 ♕g5 36. ♕f8 mate.

How so? That only yields the position:

And everything is protected, unless my lazy self is missing a +2 ply combo...

Apr-11-06  blingice: Sorry, notes about the diagram below:

First, there's supposed to be an (inconsequential) pawn on a3, and since black moves next, the queen can escape to defend. Maybe I'll look at it with Chessmaster tomorrow.

Apr-12-06  Cyphelium: <blingice> The variation I suggested after 29.- ♗xe3+ was 30. ♖xe3 ♕h5 and now not 31. g4 which you've played in your diagram, but 31. c5-c6.
Apr-12-06  dakgootje: Yups looks pretty lost for black, but at least for the spectators it would've been nice if they played on just an other 5 moves or something...
Apr-12-06  blingice: <Cyphelium> Sorry, I misread the notation for some reason. Yeah, that does make sense.
