Apr-21-08  KingG: Bogoljubov sets a 'trap' with 39...Rf6, and Alekhine gladly falls into it with 40.Rxa6!, realising that his passed pawns will be too much for the Bishop. However, 40.a5 would also have won fairly easily.

  Gilmoy: 2 CPP6s (connected passed pawns on the 6th) can beat 1 R (or N). A lone B is "better" vs. 2 CPPs because there does exist one pattern (family of similar positions) in which it can stop them both: namely, if it traps them on the opposite color, and rakes both their paths. Alone of the minor pieces, it can capture one pawn and still maintain control over the other one's advance.

So Bogo flailed in the right direction -- and as <KingG> notes, Black looked sunk regardless. His B just runs out of space: he needed Bd4 to achieve that blockade, but White owns d4, and the Ps will outrace his B to the a5-b6 position, and then to a7-b6, which beats his B.

Sep-07-14  ssitimefill: The position after black's 39th move is given as a puzzle in Ray Cheng's "Practical Chess Exercises."
