Sep-22-07  Sularus: what is the purpose of white's 24. Ba7?

i think this cost him the game.

it was very strong where it was.

Sep-22-07  xeroxmachine: I think he wants to trade da boshops.
Jul-21-17  Saniyat24: could have played 24.Rc2 or Bb1...
Aug-01-21  tonsillolith: <27. Nf2> was a nice tactic, allowing <28. Bh2+> to move the bishop in sente. White was fairly coordinated on the queenside, but the piece setup was much better prepared to handle a bishop trade. One extra tempo from black and White's queenside crumbles.
