vangogh228: <<dzechiel: Moving the king doesn't look good (23...Kg8 [not 23...Kh7 or 23...Kh8 because of 24 Qxh6+ and 25 Qg7#] 24 Qxh6 Qxe5 25 Qxg6+ Kh8 26 Qh5+ Kg8 27 Qg5+ Kh8 28 Rg3 threatening 29 Rh3#. I don't see good stuff in black's future.>> Doesn't that lead to a ...

vangogh228: I got the gist of the puzzle, but am not sure about the resignation timing. I guess White's Queenside pawn army was too much.

vangogh228: Why not 23. ... Bf7 . Black loses the exchange, but what else is wrong with it? Is that enough to resign over?
   Nov-18-10 Kasparov vs A Georgiadis, 1996 (replies)
vangogh228: Playing Black, I think I would have taken my chances with 36... Nc8. I'd rather be down a Bishop to none than give up the promotion.

vangogh228: Wait a minute here... Isn't the answer to 41.Nh5+ 41. ... Kf8 42. Qg5 (to cut off escape) 42. ... Ke8 (avoiding Qd8) 43. Rf2 (threatening Ng7#. If 43. ... gxh5, 44. Qg8.) 43. ... Bb5 ??? Any help is appreciated.

vangogh228: Qf2. That's all I've got. Can force a perpetual check.

vangogh228: Whenever I get into endgames like this one, it's essentially random chance whether I win or lose. I have little conception of the winning moves in positions like this one.

vangogh228: <Well... unless I missed something, which is likely.> And I did... after 19...Qe3+, Black simply must keep the White King from b1. 20. Kd1 Qf3+ 21. Kd2 Qxf4+ 22. Kd1 Qf3+ rinse and repeat.

vangogh228: I saw the trap, so I thought "play the Q first, and congratulated myself on being so clever. Just hung the Knight. As my granddaughter would say... "Duuurrrrrrr...."

vangogh228: I'm not seeing too much wrong with 16. Bg4. I'm probably missing something but I don't see it. I don't ever accept a sacrifice unless I'm ABSOLUTELY sure it won't end in disaster.
