Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-22-05  alicefujimori: 40.Rxd5 giving bck the exchange with a winning endgame was good judgement. Looks like Moro's "rest" day wasn't really that useless after

I actually liked White's idea to delay castling and lash out with g4-g5-Ng4. Looks like Black's light-squared bishop might've been better to say in the c8-h3 diagonal.

One difference between the Ruy and the Petroff is that the Ruy could have so many possibilities while in the Petroff white doesn't seem to have much choice left.

Anyway, nice game Moro. Keep it up!

Dec-23-05  thomaspaine: Nice game. Haven't seen these kind of games in the spanish. Someone forgot to tell Moro that Ruy is "spanish torture", not "spanish swashbuckling attack". Gotta admire Moro's creativity and courage.
Dec-23-05  peters4n6: pls, someone humor me. Moro has an extra pawn and a well located bishop, but what's White's continuation to 54...Qh2?

Qf4+ ?

Dec-23-05  TheSlid: Analysis by Fritz 8:

1. (8.34): 55.a5-a6 g3-g2 56.Qd4-d2+ Kh6-h5 57.Qd2xg2 Qh2-f4 58.Bd5-b3 Ne5-c4 59.Qg2-d5+ 2. (2.72): 55.Qd4-f4+ Kh6-g7 56.a5-a6 Qh2-g1 57.Qf4-d4 Qg1xd4 58.c3xd4 Ne5-d7 59.a6-a7 Nd7-b6 60.Ka2-b3 Kg7-f8 61.a7-a8Q+ Nb6xa8

Hope this helps, <peters4n6>

Dec-23-05  peters4n6: thanks <theslid>, I didn't have Fritz available to me. What's Fritz's impression of the resigned position (+ by how much?) and if Khalifman were to continue, what does fritz recommend for his 54th move and how much of a numerical advantage does Moro have after that move?

  cu8sfan: Lol! Referring to Zvjaginsev vs Khalifman, 2005, Alexander Morozevich annotates 1...e5 in NiC 2006/1 as follows: "Avoiding 1...c5 2.♘a3!"
Mar-02-06  hitman84: WOW! I feel this is a side line in the Ruy...

This is really good I wont have to face the damn marshall again :)
