Kibitzer's Corner
May-24-06  percyblakeney: Some very nice moves in this game... The exchange sacrifice in the 17th move is maybe not too hard to see, 24. Be7+ is more difficult and 27. ... Qxf2+ is no bad try by black.

  plang: 7..Bb4 is rarely played compared to 7..Be7. 9..h6 was new; 9..0-0 had been played previously. Morozovich thought that 10..Bxc3?! was an error recommending 10..g5 11 Bg3..Ne4 with a sharp, unclear position. 15..Qxd5 16 Qa3 would have been awkward for Black (if 16..Qa5 17 Qd6..g5 18 Rxc6). 21 h3! would have been an improvement leaving Black in trouble as 21..Qxh4? 22 Rc7..Qe7 23 Rxe7..Kxe7 24 Qxg7+ is easily winning for White. 22 h3? (23 Bf6!) was another inaccuracy leading to a rook endgame which was fairly even, 39..Kd4 40 Kf5..Ke3? 41 Rd6..d4 42 e6..d3 43 Rd7..d2 44 e7 would have been winning for White. Rather than play for a routine draw with 42..Kc5 Black ambitiously played for a win with 42..Ra7!?. 43..h5? was the losing move; Black could have drawn after 43..Kc5 44 Ke5..Kc6 45 h5..Rb7 46 Ra4..Rb1 47 g4..Re1+ 48 Kf5..Kd6.
