Nov-17-09  psmith: 30...Bg4? (30...Be6).
After this Tarrasch plays precisely.

38...a2 39. gxh5! a1/Q 40. hxg6+ is good for White.

Tarrasch seems to adapt to less than classical play here.

  Pawn and Two: Both players made errors as they approached the first time control at move 30.

After 28.e5, Saemisch in a very difficult position, missed a good defensive try:

Fritz indicates Black should have played: (.21) (21 ply) 28...Nf5! 29.Nxf5 gxf5, (.35) (21 ply) 30.Be3 Nb4 31.Rbc1 Rb5 32.Ng5, (.29) (22 ply) 32...Kg8 33.Rc4 Bf8, (.58) (22 ply) 34.Ra1 Be7 35.Qd2 Qa5 36.Qc1 a2, (.63) (23 ply) 37.Bd2 Kg7 38.Bc3, (.48) (23 ply) 38...Qb6 39.d4 cxd4 40.Bxd4 Qa6 41.Bc3 Nd5 42.Qd2 Qa3, with good drawing chances.

Fritz indicates Black's second best try would have been inadequate: 28...Nb4? (.62) (21 ply) 29.Ng5, (1.08) (23 ply) 29...Nf5 30.Ngxf7 Nd4 31.Qe4 Bc6 32.Qxg6 Be8 33.Bxb4 cxb4 34.Nxe8 Qxf7, (1.82) (24 ply) 35.Qe4 Nf5 36.Nd6 Nxd6 37.exd6, with a winning position for White.

  Pawn and Two: Tarrasch's 30.Qf3 was not nearly as strong as: (1.70) (21 ply) 30.Ng5! Be6 31.Qf2 d4, (2.63) (22 ply) 32.Rf1 Bf5 33.Ngxf7 Rh7 34.Nxf5 gxf5 35.Nd6 Nc3 36,Bxc3 dxc3 37.Nxf5, with a winning position for White.

After 30.Qf3, Saemisch tried (1.57) (22 ply) 30...Bg4?.

Instead of 30...Bg4?, Fritz indicates Black's best try was: (1.05) (22 ply) 30...Nb4! 31.Bxb4 cxb4 32.Ng5 Be6 33.f5 gxf5 34.Nxf5 Qd7, (1.03) (20 ply) 35.Qf4 Kg8 36.Re2, with considerable advantage for White, but no clear winning line is in sight.
