Sep-06-05  ajile: 42..Rg1+, 43.Kh2 Qg6 seems to give White more problems than the text. The Knight is attacked and can't move and the Rook can't leave the 2nd rank. So f3 is threatened as well as the Knight on e4. White has 44.Qd8+ KG7 45.Qf6+ QxQ 46.KNxQ Rd1 47.KNe8+ but Black has some compensation with his 2 connected mobile center pawns.

  tamar: <ajile> A nicely calculated finish by Areshchenko. Looking at your variation, White can improve by just checking with the queen until it reaches h4, which frees both the rook and knight to join in the attack.

42...Rg1+ 43 Kh2 Qg6 44 Qd8+ Kg7

45 Qe7+ Kh6 46 Qh4+ Kg7 47 Rc2
Rh1+ 48 Kxh1 Qxe4+ 49 Rg2+

Sep-07-05  patzer2: A small but near decisive error is 22...Rc2? After 23. Qd3! White wins what proves to be a decisive pawn. Note that 23...Rxb2?? 24. Bc1! would have trapped the Rook after going pawn grabbing.

Perhaps Black needed to try 22...Bd8 with equalizing chances.

Sep-07-05  patzer2: Indeed 42. Rf2! effectively combines offense and defense as White's only sure winning try to force a deep passed pawn combination after the smoke clears.
