Jan-16-05  quovadis: Here 31. KxR is far much better I think , with a good position . your comment please ....
Jan-16-05  aw1988: Kxf2 Ra2+ game over.
Jan-16-05  quovadis: Still insist 31.KxR and if 31 ... Ra2+ , 32 Kg1 if Black continue 32 ... Qd4 + , 33 Kh1 Rf2 , 34 Rf3 with a good position , your comment please ....
Jan-16-05  steamroller: If Kxf2, then Qd4+ Re3 Ra2 Qe2 Re2 Ke2 Qb4, and white can't play Re5 because of Qb2+. The ending should be good for black after Qb4.
Jan-16-05  quovadis: After 1 ... Qb4 ,2 Nd3 Qg4+ , 3 Kf2 and i beleave white can hold the position with good chanses, your comment please ...
Jan-16-05  shortsight: quovadis, if your 1 ... Qb4 is actually followed the line by steamroller, then i don't see how your N can go to d3 when there's still a pawn there!
Jan-16-05  quovadis: the line I propose to follow goes like this 31.KxR Qd4 + , 32 Re3 Ra2+ , 33 Qe2 RxQ , 34 KxQ Qxb4 , 35 Ne4 Qb2 , 36 Nd2 could white hold this position , your comments please , thank's ...
Jan-16-05  aw1988: Actually it looks like Kxf2 Qd4+ grabs it.
Jan-16-05  aw1988: Oh, this idea has already been proposed, so I guess I must expand on the line...
Jan-16-05  aw1988: quovadis, at the end of your line I believe black is winning, since the white pieces are bottled up. You could defend e5 with 36...f6 and proceed from there. But instead of 34...Qxb4, I propose a less complicated way to win: 34...Qb2+!.
