Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-01-08  Alphastar: My best effort in the tournament. Last round, we both couldn't play for a prize anymore (with 5/8) but naturally he probably felt some pressure to win as his rating was nearly 400 points higher at the time.

24. ..Qd7? was an unlucky move; it made the thematic pawn break 25. c5! possible. Normally black would answer c5 with 25. ..axb4 axb4 26. ..bxc5 so that he can play 27. ..Nb4 in reply to 27. b5, but 25. ..axb4 is answered by the in-between move 26. c6! followed by 27. axb4, which is quite bad for black.

black's decisive mistake was 25. ..dxc5? better was 25. ..bxc5 when white breaks through on the queenside just like in the game with b5-b6, but this is less destructive than what happens in the game.

Notice the quiet little move 27. f3! forcing fxg3, after which the g3-pawn can be used as a shield for the white king. This annihilates all black's potential attacking chances.

After 29. d6 black is destroyed on the weak light squares.
