Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-02-05  jmcd2002: Is this game complete? What's the finish?
Jul-02-05  aw1988: Strong knight on d6, f5 pawn falling.
Jul-02-05  Giancarlo: Still that alone shouldn't permit a resignation.
I think that the fact white is already up the exchange helps, as well as a protected passed e-pawn. The rooks are also much stronger than the bishops here.
Jul-03-05  farrooj: Well, there's nothing black can do. I remember a quote about chess:" When you don't have anything to do, start panicking!"

Here Black has no plan, not even a defense maneuver. White will keep pressuring the king side and queen side until black cracks, it is inevitable.
