  vonKrolock: <7.cxd5> This variation do not poses much troubles for Black

<11.cxd4> Whith nothing more than the immaterial advantage of the distant majority, Flohr will, from now on, drives the Game to a favorable end, increasing slowly his edge whith sure manoeuvres



<25.Bg2> The invitation for a liquidation of Rooks is welcome for Black...

<32...Kf6>! The journey bound for 'c5' starts

<41.Ka4> It seems that, whith 41.Kc3, White could offer more resistance, but Flohr himself pointed out that, whith 41...a4, he would be winning anyway

<57...Kf3> quod erat demonstrandum

  Gypsy: <36...bxa4?!> A strange decision; 36...b4 looks at least as strong. Black can then easily rearange by something like

36...b4 37.Bc2 Kc7 38.Bd1 Kb6 38.Bc2 Kc5 39.Bd1 Nb7 40.Ke3 Nc5 41.Bd1 h5 42.Bc2... to a position

where the pawn push 42...b3 43.Bd1 b2 44.Bc2 Nxa4 .... easily wins.

Jan-23-11  KingG: Very smooth positional game, although <Gypsy>'s suggestion of 36...b4 does look much better. In addition 27...Rc4, keeping the active rook, and leaving White with his passive one, might also have been worth considering.
