Sep-03-07  notyetagm: Damn, Navara is strong tactically.
Sep-03-07  notyetagm: 28 ♘a4-c5?? is a really atrocious move for an expert (2081 rating) to make.

White was thinking only about the <SQUARE>, that the White c5-knight would be <DEFENDED> on c5 by the White h5-queen.

White just totally overlooked that he was <LINING UP> two of his pieces along the 5th rank, the White c5-knight + White h5-queen, allowing Black to win material with the simple <FORK> from between them 28 ... ♖d8-d5!.

<<If you line up your pieces, then the reason why simply does not matter!>>

Here the reason was to <DEFEND> the White c5-knight by the White h5-queen but that is irrelevant. Navara (Black) really does not care =why= the White c5-knight is <LINED UP> with the White h5-queen along the 5th rank, he simply <FORKS> them (28 ... ♖d8-d5!).
