Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-09-10  ughaibu: In this opening, does white sacrifice a pawn? or is it a blunder?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sastre: I can't see any pawn sacrifice by White. After 10.Nxd4 both sides have seven pawns. What are you referring to <ughaibu>?
Oct-09-10  ughaibu: You're right! One of white's pawns was invisible to me earlier, I cant imagine which.
Aug-07-12  vinidivici: 51.e4 is a blunder. Its very easy to imagine after 51...d4, white would take the d4 pawn but h1-a8 diagonal is closed by the friendly pawn. Its a draw.

White bishop cannot penetrate to the enemy's area.
51.Kg5 would take white to the heaven. White would go to the d4 square and after that pawn to e4. If black takes white would take with his bishop and h1-a8 diagonal would be open meanwhile black's BAD BISHOP couldnt do anything to prevent white bishop to crack the defense.

Oct-12-18  goser: The endgame is exactly a case when computer analysis is useless. Stockfish believes that White is winning even in the final position but proposes absolutely nothing to break through the Black's defense. The plan with placing White's king to d4 and playing e4 after makes no difference: Stockfish believes that White is winning but proposes no efficient action.
