  whiteshark: <33. Rb7> instead of a rook trade-off on d8. Interesting!

  hedgeh0g: A well-calculated sequence by Kamsky, leaving him with a fairly mobile kingside majority. f2-f4-f5 etc. looks like the main plan for White now.

  Troller: Seems Gata got all he wanted in this game, this is exactly his kind of endgame.

  lost in space: White is now clearly better. 33...Re8 34. Nc6 Nd8 35. Nxd8 Rxd8 36. e5; advantage wite
Sep-05-11  Strongest Force: Crazy could be good. In a street fight, fighting crazy and dirty can save your life.

  whiteshark: A rook on 7th rank is quite an asset.

  perfidious: Next stop-monster knight on d5 to gum up the works a bit more.
Sep-05-11  Strongest Force: This is already 1-0
Sep-05-11  leprechaunz: nf5 is a good sacrifice

  hedgeh0g: It's hard to find a constructive move for Black besides mindlessly pushing the queenside pawns.

  perfidious: In a normal game, Black would give up the ghost here, but 1/2-1/2 wouldn't be a major shock.

  whiteshark: Kamsky is now 2 pawns up.

  Troller: Gata leaves no room for complications, 40.f3 is the kind of move that makes it look impossible from Black's point of view.
Sep-05-11  2Towers: Gata is just jabbing here. Waiting for the opponent to say, "I've had enough, I quit."
Sep-05-11  Strongest Force: Sometimes it is best just to run from a crazy person :)

  Troller: Congratulations <Darknolan>! You sure made it look easy.
Sep-05-11  2Towers: Congrats Gata Kamsky!
