kozo: <TheaN><searchofthetruth><butilikefur> 56.f5 Kxd4 57.f6 Kxc5 58. f7 Rf2 59.Kg7 Kd4 60.f8=Q Rxf8 61.Kxf8 c5 62.g6 c4 63. g7 c3 64.g8=Q c2 now we are at <remolino>'s ending. Normally to win in these endings white must check the king until it is forced in front of ...
   Apr-05-09 Keene vs H S Hope, 1963 (replies)
kozo: <goodevans> Rf3 instead of Rf5 in your line keeps the rook safe (so black can't sac an exchange) and still threatens Rh3, which black doesn't have time to block. In the game continuation, Ra5, black defends against this by threatening Raxe5.
   Mar-13-09 Tarrasch vs Steinitz, 1898 (replies)
kozo: <jimfromprovidence> I think so, or at least it doesn't suddenly stop working. 21. ... Nh7 22. e6 Bxe6 23. Rxe6 fxe6 24. Qxg4+. Now Kh8 is impossible because of Qh5, leaving Bg5 and Ng5. After Ng5 white has Rd1, winning a piece on g5, and if Bg5 white plays Be3. imo 14. g5 was ...
   Jan-14-09 Carlsen vs Svidler, 2009 (replies)
kozo: After 20. ... Nd4 21. Nxd4 cxd4 22.Bxe7 Qxe7 23. e5 white can get away with Qxa6 and then come back for the d pawn, compared to 20. ... Nb4 21.Bxb4?! cxb4 22. Qxa6 Ra8 23. Qb5 Qxb5 24. axb5 Rab8 leaving the pawn weak. Black seems to be losing faster after Nb4.
   Dec-09-08 A Foldeak vs F Nagy, 1942 (replies)
kozo: Nd5 is a move white usually wants to play in the sicillian, even as a sacrifice sometimes. Here white gets it in for free, preventing the natural development of the queen to c7 or b6, and after 9. ... Bg7 10. c3 black cannot castle because of the attack on e7. I would say that white is
   Oct-10-08 Kasparov vs Kramnik, 2000 (replies)
kozo: <Cactus> Black is in absolutely no position to be taking the advantage, he has just fortified his position and blockaded white's pawn majority. The only way of playing on I can see other than just repeating moves is Rh5-h8-d8, where the exchanges don't seem to help.
   Oct-04-08 A Lastin vs K Maslak, 2008 (replies)
kozo: 31. ... Re7 is kind of nessecary to get some kind of activity, as c5 will come at some point, winning the pawn anyway. Black must have made a mistake somewhere in the opening (mabye exchanging queens, i don't really know) since after b3 and c4 he has no compensation for the backward ...
   Sep-19-08 Y Hou vs Kosteniuk, 2008 (replies)
kozo: <"Sophisticated waiting move" is a fancy way of saying this move serves no real purpose>I was trying to be sarcastic (white actually scores less than 50% in this database). Maybe i should have put a !! or something. But in the games i posted, black looked for an outright ...
   Jul-05-08 Mamedyarov vs Ivanchuk, 2008
kozo: <marmot> black would have some counterplay by cxd4 etc, although i don't know the theory of this opening. with moves like Bc1 and dxc5 mamedyarov seems to be dead set on the draw
   Apr-27-08 Fischer vs Andersson, 1970 (replies)
kozo: <yell0wd0g>if i remember correctly, yusupov used the Rg1 g4 strategy as black (this is a reversed stonewall), and cited this game as his inspiration in one of his books with dvoretzky.
