Kibitzer's Corner
May-05-13  luzhin: Amazing upset: perhaps Hou had missed that after 39.Nxd8 Bxc4 40.Ne6+ mates as the Ne6 'interferes' with both the Rook's retreat to e8 and the Bishop's to g8!

  HeMateMe: <L> I think you're right. N-e6 is the span in the works.
May-05-13  Gilmoy: Playing through slowly, I thought Black attacked with a bit not enough respect.

At <9..a6> Black's QID-ish Bs are beautiful, but no danger yet. <11.cxd5 exd5> is the first strategic choice point: White's plan of <12.Ne2 13.Ng3> is a solid response vs. the Bs.

<15..g5 16..g4> is nice if you have tricks behind it, else invites chagrin. White uses her own trick <17.Bxe4 with a rubberband escape on f3> to trade her stodgy Bb2 for Black's wonderful Bd6, and regains the pawn with check -- suggesting a fissure in Black's plan. After <22.Qf5 23.Rd1> White's Ng3 stands mighty, Black has long-term weaknesses in the center and c7, and there's basically zero chance of Black winning on the K-side.

<25.b4!> prevents c5, securing an Nd4 outpost. <27.Nf4> bravely dares Black to sac an exchange. <28..Rg5?> looks like Black has already drifted out of touch with the position: White gets a free tempo for <30.g3> locking in the Nf4. Note how the cheap loss of Black's g-pawn makes White's K-side formation completely untouchable.

Black finally pushes <30..c5> without support, and promptly cedes b, as White's pieces are better-placed to exploit the space. Surely White had time to deep-think here and see the blizzard of tactics that finished it.

The Q "sac" at the end was nice, but Black was like sleepwalking for about 20 moves before it.

Dec-27-13  RandomVisitor: Improvements worth investigating: 17...dxe4; 21...Qg7 or 21...Kh8; 24...Qf6; 26...Bc8
Dec-27-13  RandomVisitor: There is the interesting line

[+0.15] d=20 26...Bc8 27.Nf4 Qd6 28.h3 Bd7 29.Rd4 Rxf4 30.exf4 Qxf4
