Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-21-08  I Offer You A Resign: After move 10, in my opinion, White is pretty much clearly winning. Although black is deep in White territory, his queen can't do anything. Meanwhile, White is threatening the powerful Qd6. What's in it for Black?

  Gilmoy: <11.Qd6 Nge7> (defends Bc8, threatens Qd5) and now it's White's Q that looks impotent -- she can't make progress vs. Black's fortress by herself, her N is still stranded, her h2-pawn hangs. <12.Qc7+ Ke8> solves none of those. <12.Nc7 a6!> still trapped, and Black has h5-Rh6 (or Qxh2-Qh6), eventually winning the N. <12.h4 Qd5> same.

White's <9.Nxc7+> didn't win a clear Rook -- it's only a delayed exchange. Kosintseva judged (correctly, I think) that 2-on-8 is way too lighthorse to work, so developing and castling gave her more chances. Her <knight errant> still never got out. For want of, um, a pegasus, the messenger was lost ...
