  patzer2: Spassky's 8. Qb3 is an improvement over the weak 8. a3 in H Dinser vs D Mione, 1996

Spassky's 33. Rg7+ is a nice tactical and positional shot to crack open the position with an exchange sacrifice. However, Black could have put up more resistance by accpeting the offered rook, although 33...Kxg7 still appears to leave him at a big disadvantage due to White's extra pawns.

  patzer2: If 33...Kxg7, 34. Bxf6+ (discovered check) wins the White Queen. After 34...Rxf6 35. Qxc4 g4 36. a4 Ra8 37. Qf4 Kg6 38. Rd6 Raf8 39. a5 Rxd6e, it might appear that Black has counter-chances with R + B vs Q and extra pawns in this position (+2.31 @ 16 depth & 776kN/s per Fritz 8). However, a deep second Fritz 8 analysis shows White decisively wins the ending after 40. Qxd6+ Rf6 41. Qa3 Re6 42. Kf1 Re8 43. a6 Be6 44. Qd6 Kf5 45. Qf4+ Kg6 46. Qxf8 Bxa2 47. a7 (#10 @ 14 depth & 834kN/s).

This Fritz 8 analysis may be worth looking at for a little instruction on ♕ + ♙ vs. ♖ + ♗ endings.

Feb-17-18  Everett: Not new, just like the idea behind 9.e6 and subsequent play on the long diagonal
