Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-24-06  fred lennox: If instead 16...Bxe3, 17.Qxe3 black would of reduced his chances of winning without the bishop pair.
Aug-13-06  suenteus po 147: 23...Rxe3 seems like an amazing move, but if 24.Kxe3 I don't see a mating net or any way to win a piece. The white king can always escape and capture a wayward piece along the way if pressed. What am I missing?
Aug-13-06  Albertan: Suenteus po 147 I don't think you are missing anything. You have found out where Hodges erred in this game congratulations. He erred when he played 24.Rxd6? As you point out if Hodges had played 24.Kxe3 and Black is doing just fine. For instance:

24. Kxe3 Bc5+ 25. Kd3 Rd8+ 26.Kc4 Rxd2 27. Kxc5 Rxc2 28. g3 Bf5 29. Re1 Rxb2 30. Re8+ Kh7 31. Re3 Be6 32.Kxc6 Rb3=

Aug-13-06  suenteus po 147: <Albertan> Thanks for that. The line you present is pretty close to what I thought was the best Black could muster if the white king took the rook. However, my analytic skills are far from adequate so I'm often asking for better input than my own :)
