Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-26-06  stanleys: 34.Bd7! 35.d5! quite an unusual way to finish the game(and not easy to see)
Oct-24-06  mack: Extraordinary finish! There's no answer to ...Rc8
Oct-25-06  mack: ...Rf8, that should be.

  wwall: After 35.d5! Black has no good choices. 35...Rf7 and White can play 33...Qb5 looks like the losing ove. Perhaps best for Black is 33...Qe7. White can now play 34.Bf5

If 34...Rg8 35.d5 Qc5 36.Bxg7+ Rxg7 37.Qxc5 bxc5 38.Rf8+ Rg8 39.Rxg8+ Kxg8 40.dxc6 Nxc6 41.Bxc6 wins as White is a piece up.

If 34...Rf8 35.Rxf8 Bxf8 36.d5+ Bg7 37.dxc6 wins for White

36.dxc6 Rxf2 37.Kxf2 Nxc6 38.Qxc6 Qxc6 39.Bxg7+ Kxg7 40.Bxc6 with an easy endgame a piece up. Maybe better is 35...Rf7 36.Bxg7+ Kg8 37.Rxf7 Nxf7 38.dxc6, threatening 39.c7. If 35...Bxb2, then 36.Qxb2+ Kg8 37.Qf6 Rf7 38.Qxd8+ Kg7 39.Rxf7+ Kxf7 40.Be8+ Kf8 41.Bh5+ Kg7 42.Qxg5+ Kh8 43.Qf6+ Kg8 44.Qf7+ Kh8 45.Qf8 mate. 35...Rxd7?? 36.Rf8 mate.

This game can be found in Chess Informant 1, game #1. The last comment is that White has a decisive advantage after 31.Rf2.

Mar-11-16  chess959: 9...Qd7?

(9... 0-0 would be better)

After 19. f3! white has opened the f-file and with two bishops he won easily.

Excellent correspondence game played by technologist V. Simagin.
