Mar-24-05  TheParadigm: Excellent pun, chessgames.
Mar-24-05  Gowe: Very nice played by Barbero. In move 31 black has this interesting combination 31.Nxe2 32.Qxe2 Nxh3 <and if you move rock, then the simply continuation Nf4 winning pretty easily because it win the g pawn> and if you don't you are threating Nf2+ and Qh3+ winning.
Mar-24-05  Gowe: I was wrong i didn't see this variation.
<31.Nxe2 32.Qxe2 Nxh3 33.Re1 and if Nxh3 then Qxe5> with a little advantage for white.

  kevin86: black's move 28 is one of the must subtle forks that I've ever seen! With the help of the pin,black suddenly attack both f3 and h3!
Mar-24-05  matiro: Why not 15 ..Nxc5 ?
After 15 ..Nxc5 16.Qb4 b6 is a possible variation?

  tpstar: <matiro> Hello! Welcome to the group! If 15 ... Nxc5!? White would play 16. Qa3 b6 17. Na4, and now 17 ... Rd8 18. Nxc5 bxc5 19. Bxc5 isolating Black's Queenside Pawns. See you around.
Mar-24-05  maxxowar: <tpstar> 15 ... Nxc5!? 16. Qa3 b6 17. Na4, and now 17 ...Bh6 keeps equality.
Mar-24-05  gidguy2000: Can someone explain 6...Na6? I play this black opening religiously, and any insights would be very appreciated. Thanks
Mar-24-05  morphynoman2: International chess grandmaster Gerardo Barbero died in Budapest, of eye cancer, in April 5,2001, at age 40.....Argentine champion (1984) and world olympiad team board one (1990) ..Mr. Barbero was one of the very few argentine "official" grandmaster players ever.
Mar-24-05  oscar200chess: 6...Na6 prepares c4 followed by N-c7. I think it is mainly played to avoid prepared lines by White. At worst it loses a tempo. I have played a couple of games against it, and haven't found any way to exploit it.

  patzer2: White's subtle error 33. f4? allows Black an immediate decisive advantage with 33...Ne4!, theatening a winning Knight Fork (e.g. 34.Rf1 Nxf4 35.Nxf4 Ng3+ 36.Kh2 Nxf1+ 37.Qxf1 exf4–+) or the quick finale from the game continuation.

As an alternative to the winning pin 36...Qe5!(threatening mate via double discovered check after 37.Nxd5 Nf1+ 38.Kh1 Qh2#), Black can also dictate the outcome with a simple knight fork after 36...Nxf4! 37.Qxf4 Ne2 38.Qe3 Nxg1 39.Qxg1 Qxb2–+.
