  Honza Cervenka: Interesting game. I don't know why Suetin did not take the pawn with a check in the 19th move but he seemed to be fine after that and even clearly winning. But Antoshin amazingly turned the table in several moves. If 36.g3 freeing g2 for the King, then 36...a4 37.Kg2 a3 37.Ra6 a2 38.Qa4 Qb1 39.Nd2 (39.Qxa2 Qh1+! 40.Kxh1 Bxf3+ 41.Kg1 Re1#) 39...Re1!! 40.Nxb1 (40.Ra8+ Kg7 41.Ra7+ Kh6 ) 40...Rg1+! 41.Kxg1 axb1=Q+ 42.Kg2 Bf3+! 43.Kh3 (43.Kxf3 Qe4#) 43...Qf5+ 44.Kh4 Qg4#.

  Fusilli: I was looking at the Opening Explorer and this line (11.Bb2) has a terrible record for black. There are only five games and the record is +4 -1. This is the -1, the only one where 11...a5 was played. So I checked to see if black had figured out something remarkable.

Well, no he didn't. There is nothing extraordinary about 11...a5, and white has clear advantage throughout the middle game. Like <Honza Cervenka>, I don't understand why Suetin didn't play 19.Qxd5+ followed by 20.Qxb7, with a big advantage. Yet, like <HC> says, he is still better for a while. Going for the b6-pawn allowed black to create counterattack. 27.Qe3 was better. After 27...Qg7 28.g3 Bd7 29.Rc7, black has serious problems with that bishop, instead of activating it with f4 as in the game.
