Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-19-07  Scarecrow: A breathtaking game overall. Having reached a pawn up endgame with opposite coloured bishops, Georgiev gives up his pawn for some back rank threats but Jakovenko regroups very well with <32...Ra2> and soon Black has a perpetual. <35. g4> aims for a position where white has a pawn on g5 and thus can checkmate black with Rg8. <40...Rxh2> creates the first mate threat against the white King. At this point White cannot deliver perpetual check so he goes on for the mate with <41. g5> but Black's plan is again more powerful. <44...f5!> is very good and <45. exf6> is an only move. <49...e5!> is another ingenious mate threat and at this point my engine says 50. Rg8 Rf2 51. Rg1 Rxf4+ 52. Rg4 Rxf6 so White is losing. The final position is a mate in two after (for example) 51. Rf1 Rxf1 52. fxe5 Rf4#
