Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-12-10  DiscoJew: Wow Roman had amazing heart.
2+2=5 and Bishops are better than Rooks.
Jun-02-12  backrank: Yes, in that position the exchange sac is truly amazing, since the white rooks were already invading to the 7th rank. But Dzindzi has judged the situation well. He tames the annoying rooks and plays on the white squares (as so often in his games). The strength of the bishops is enlightened by the following pretty variation given by Dzindzi: 35. Kh2 (instead of 35. Nf1) Bh6! 36. Nf1 (Nf1 Bf4+ g3 Bxf3!) Bf4+ 37. g3 (Ng3 h5) Be3!! 38. Qxe3 Qxf1 and mate follows either on g2 or h1 (39. Qg1 Qe2+). The final winning manoever is instructive, too, and shows once more the power of a passed pawn. White can't play the desired 37. Qc5, because Black escapes at the eleventh hour by Qxf1+ 38. Kh1 Qf4+ and Qh6.
