|Feb-02-04|| ||panigma: ummm...what? |
|Feb-02-04|| ||clendenon: <panigma> its an enigma. |
|Jun-05-04|| ||admeyer: It's not hard to understand black's resignation. After the pawns are exchanged off of g5, white's king can penetrate decisively on the king side. |
|Jun-05-04|| ||Artificer: lol clendenon. |
|Mar-14-05|| ||WMD: Does anyone know the circumstances behind this game? Most likely it's an offhand blitz game played after the Short match. |
|Oct-01-05|| ||powershaker: Looks like Adams crushes Kasparov! hehe Sorry, my last name is Adams, too!|
|Oct-01-05|| ||Brown: Adams has a peculiar style that echos Larsen and Nimzowitch, with locked pawn structures, manuevering, etc. At his best he is a strong, yet quirky strategist of the highest level.|
|Jan-19-06|| ||Kola: This is the last time Adams beat Kaspy in the data base. From now on, Adams is KLLUBBEEDDD!|

How does White force a win here (or is my line bad)?

Maybe someone with more insight can explain it. Because I see no way to improve white's position
|Jun-01-06|| ||plang: This must have been a blitz game. I don't believe Adams has ever defeated Kasparov with classical time controls.|
|Jul-12-06|| ||dwojiow: <DanRoss53> I've only looked at the position for 30 seconds, so I could be wrong, but 56.♗b5! intending 57.♔e5 seems to be the answer.|
The point is that White can steadily improve his position while Black is reduced to shuffling. After White plays ♔e5 Black will have to play ♔e7 to stop the King invasion. Now White can reposition his Bishop by something like ♗b5-♗d3-♗c2-♗b3.
Black meanwhile can only move his Knight, and can't activate it as that would allow d6+, which will prove a fatal for Black (since White can march over and take the b6 pawn).
So, after the Bishop is ideally placed (on b3) White can sacrifice the pawn by d6+. The free d5 square will allow White to attack the b6 pawn and later to attack the Black pawn chain from behind ♗b3-♗g8-♗h7.
One other possibility which I've just noticed as I type this is a Bishop sacrifice on f5, after manouevring the Bishop to d3. Then the passed g pawn could distract the Black King while White promotes on the other side. I'm not sure this idea works, but it just goes to show that White has all the play in the position - no wonder Black resigned!
|Jan-23-07|| ||ianD: This is an improptu Blitz game.
Meaningless unless you were playing with either the b lack or the whire pieces.
Garry must have hated to lose.
Mickey must have been over the moon!!

|Apr-27-08|| ||donald1: Looking at Fritz 11 DanRoss is correct there is no win here.Dwojiow the knight is able to cover the key squares with the king and although white has a 1.75 advantage according to fritz 11 never is able to take advantage of that lead. King and knight just jump back and forth.|
|Oct-19-08|| ||Brown: <dwojiow:> I like the line, but with the king e5, black can play Nf7+ leaving no time for the d6 push.|
