Did you ever think of firing the "Alekhine gun" on B in this game? And if so, how can it be done successfully?

  ray keene: maybe 20 bxg5 but i didnt see a clear win
Mar-31-05  RookFile: I guess the thought is 20. Bxg5 hxg5 21. Qxg5+ Ng6 22. Nh5 Ne8 is tough to crack.
Apr-06-05  prinsallan: Thanks guys for the excellent replys.
Apr-06-05  Seraphina: Bachtiar seems to like his game cramped! All those knight manoeuvers... <rookfile> Nh5 looses outright to NxN... the black queen is protected by the N on g6, because QxQ ends the pin...

On another note: Bachtiar had the defense 35... Rg5! followed by the exchange of the N for the bishop. May that not have prolongued the struggle?

Apr-06-05  Boomie: Here's an amusing possibility:
20. ♗xg5 hxg5 21. ♕xg5+ ♘g6 22. ♘f5 ♕e6 23. cxd6 cxd6 24. ♖d1 ♖fd8 25. ♖b7 ♘h7 26. ♕h6 ♕f6 27. ♕h5 ♔h8 28. ♘h6 ♖f8 29. ♖xf7 ♖xf7 30. ♖xd6 ♕f4 31. ♘xf7+ ♕xf7 32. ♖xg6 ♖e8 with 4 pawns for the piece. However this isn't as good as the text, so Ray's intuition was good.
