Aug-17-06  melianis: Finely structured pawns throughout the game. The 'stairs'-manoeuvre 36. Qd5+ 37. Qxe5+ 38.Qe6+ ending with 39. Qh3! ends the game in a problem-like fashion.

  ganstaman: You're right, very interesting pawn structures. I was amazed at move 28 -- white had 2 passed pawns on the QS/center ready to get moving while black had a mass of pawns pushing down the KS/center. And then the KS pawns at move 35 -- if it weren't for white's pesky checks, they would be absolutely winning I'd imagine.

So was black not correct to give up the knight on move 32, I guess? Was there a way to save it and not give in to the c- and d-pawns? Or should black have conducted here KS attack differently, somehow getting compensation for that knight?

Aug-17-06  melianis: I'd probably have played 27...Nd7 and end up with a desperate (with my skills) attempt to block the a- and b-pawns (that's just one line...)

All the attacking lines I have thusfar checked around the 30th move end up with white's Bf1 saving white's day... 31...Rf5, maybe? I'm bad in counting and don't use a computer to check these.
