Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-03-11  ughaibu: White gives up two pieces for a rook and pawn, for no special reason that I can see, but then carries on and apparently wins quite easily.
Jan-03-11  twinlark: It's a marvelously fluent and aesthetic game. Another up and coming apprentice amongst the killer elite aka the Teddy Bear Assassin.

  Gilmoy: <ughaibu: ... no special reason ...> After <17..d5 18..d4!> Black is on the verge of seizing the initiative, opening the dangerous b7-g2 diagonal. The unthinking trade 19.exd5 gives Black a great Nc5 outpost. White wisely "retreats" into a patient defense, balancing rooks on c-d.

At <22.exd4 f6>, consider: Both White Bs are blah, on poor diagonals and relegated to defense (e.g. Bf1 to hold c4 and g2). Retreating the Be5 loses a pawn. So already White would probably be happy to sell his Bs for face value.

Think that through a bit, and it suddenly gathers excellent bonus points: (a) the forced recapture 24..Rxe8 deflects away Black's control of d, and hangs his Nd7; (b) 25.dxe5 comes with a free tempo; (c) 26.Rd6 utterly dominates space, is untouchable, and threatens the crushing 27.Rcd1, which (d) forces Black to waste yet another tempo to retreat his N -- driving it from a bad square to an even worse square.

The neat thing is that Nyzhnyk saw all this at 18, and played <19.Qe1!> to protect e5 and <26.Rd6>.

Jan-04-11  ughaibu: Interesting analysis. . . . but, for example, 19.Qe1 is pretty much forced.
