Oct-30-04  Shams: 5...d5 and the bishop has to drop back to d3, after which the pawn fork ...e4 comes.
Oct-30-04  arifattar: How about 6.Bf5?
Oct-30-04  Shams: then 6...Bxf5 and black has no problems. Come on bro, visualize!! ;)

The end could have been 16...a2 17. Rxa2 Rxg4 18. Ra7+ and 19. Rh7 or 19. Ra6 followed by Rxa6.Two passed pawns must win.

If there is play on both wings,as in this case,you will need two plans.And if there is no passed pawn, this means you'll need two weaknesses to exploit.
