Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-11-06  PhilFeeley: Another great game for the 4 queens collections!
Aug-11-06  Albertan: The move 11...bxc4 appears to be a theoretical novelty. Prior to this game Black had only tried 11...Nxd4 or 11...exd4.
Aug-11-06  Albertan: Another idea for White on move 12 for White was to play 12.Rc1 after which play might have continued: 12...Nxd4 13.Nxd4 exd4 14.hxg6 hxg6 15.Rxc4 Re8 16.Nxc7 Re5 17.Qc1 Bb7 18.Bf4 Rh5 19.Rxh5 Nxh5 30.Bg5 Bf6 31.Bxf6 Qxf6
Aug-11-06  Albertan: On move 17. Ward could have played 17.Nd5 instead of 17.hxg6. If 17.Nd5 then 17...Bxd5 18.exd5 e4!? 19.O-O-O (If 19.fxe4? Black gains the advantage after 19...Rxb2 20.Qe3 Nxd5! 21.exd5 Rbb8 22.Qf3 (Black was threatening 23...Re8)) 19....Nxd5 20.hxg6 hxg6 21.Qd4 exf3 22.gxf3 Rfc8 23.Qxf6 Nxf6 24.Rxd6 Ne8 25.Rd4 Rxc6 26.Rxc4 Rxc4 27.Bxc4=
Aug-11-06  Albertan: If Ward had decided to take the enprise Black pawn on d6 on move 19 ie. 19.Qxd6 then play might have continued: 19...Nd4 20.Nd5 Qg5+ 21.f4!? Rxf4 22.Kb1 (If 22.Nxf4? Qxf4+ 23.Kb1 Qxe4+ 24.Bd3 Qb7 25.Rd2 cxd3 ) 22...c3!? 23.Qxb8+ Rf8 24.Qxf8!? Kxf8 25.bxc3 Nb5 with compensation for the pawn.
Aug-11-06  Albertan: On move 25 Hebden could have played 25...Ra8! and play might have continued 26.Nd5 Rxa6 27.Nxc7 Qxc7 winning a pawn.
Aug-11-06  Albertan: On move 28 Hebden could have started a combination by playing 28...Rxa6 and after 29.gxh5 Qxf3 30.hxg6 Rxg6 he would have won a pawn.
Aug-11-06  Albertan: Playing 29.gxh5 would have been a mistake:

29. gxh5 ? Rc6 (29... Rxa6 30. bxc3 Qxf3 31. Ka1 Qxc3+ 32. Qb2 Rc6 33. hxg6 hxg6 34. Qxc3 Rxc3 35. Kb2 Rc4 36. Re1) 30. hxg6 Rxg6 31. Qxe5 Rgxa6 32. Rg1+ Rg6 33. Rxg6+ hxg6 34. b3 Rf8

Aug-12-06  Albertan: Ward blundered on move 45 when he played 45.Qc7+?? (However even if he played 45.Qd7+ after 45...Kf6 46.Qc6+ Kf5 47.Qd7+ Ke4 48.Qxh7+ Kf3 49.Qf7+ Ke2 50.Qc4+ Kd1 51.Qa4+ Ke1 52.Qe4+ Kf2 53.h7 Qh5 54.Qc2+ Kg3 55.Qb1 he would lose.)
Aug-12-06  Albertan: Ward resigned on move 56 because he will be checkmated after:

57.Kc4 Qf1+ 58.Kc5 Qbxb5+ 59.Kd6 Qb6+ 60.Kd5 Qd3+ 61.Kxe5 Qbd6#
