  HeMateMe: Pogonina gets there first. We've all been there, where force arrives before the pawn on h6 can be eliminated.

I thought there would be more games between Natalie and Alexandra, but there are only 3 classic chess games in the data base.

Seems an odd variation for black, accepting a backward center pawn right out of the opening. But, it does breathe life into the Petrov.

Sep-02-11  sevenseaman: Pogonina wins a very complex duel - great!
Sep-02-11  sevenseaman: <kingscrusher> I like your analysis but the videos are tiresomely slow and intermittent. The poor video speed drives one away, unsated.

  kingscrusher: sevenseaman: How odd - maybe your Internet connection - try lowering the resolution option on the bottom of the video perhaps.
