  Chessical: Williams could have put Dzindzichashvili's counter-attacking set-up to a greater test by:

<12. d5!> Qc5 13. Be3 Qd6 14. f4 e5 (or <14... Nxe4> 15. Bxe4 Bxc4 16. Qh5) 15. O-O; with advantage in either case.

  rodchuck: I don't really understand why white resigned. How does black counter d7 with the threat d8 (=Q or R)#?
Aug-25-12  abcpokerboy: I'm fairly sure that the last move is a mistake; d2 wins and was probably the last move. Qe2 loses.

  Chessical: <rodchuck> Indeed, this seems a case of mutual blindness regarding the <d> pawns>.

<44..Qe2> is a blunder as it allows <45.d7!> winning.

Instead, <44...d2> would have won.

Jun-14-14  waustad: Too bad the Williams here isn't Simon Kim Williams. We could get a very interesting spelling of the Dzindzer GM.
Jul-23-14  estrick: Weeramantry has Black playing 44 ...d2, 45.Qxd5 Qe2.
