Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-05-05  suenteus po 147: Did Flohr agree to a draw because he can't bust through the kingside? This game seems much too complex for me to break down and understand in parts. I'm missing something here at the end.
Feb-05-05  euripides: I think there's a lot of play left at the end. White can open the g file, and Black must play actively in response. However, it's not so easy to organise Black's pieces. For instance after 33 Rxc8 Rxc8 34 Rg1 Rh8 35 Rg2 Black would like to play a waiting move so that if the g file opens then after exchanges he can play Rh2+, and if white plays Kg1 first then he can play Rc8 and after g4 and subsequent exchanges he would have Rc4 and white can't play Ke3. However I don't see a good waiting move here e.g. 35...Ke7 36 g4 hg 37 hg fg 38 Nxg4 Nxg4 39 Bxg4 Bxg4 40 Rxg4 and Black has to protect the knight on g7 (40...Rc4 ? 41 Rxg7+ Kf6 42 Ne6). Even then, I doubt if White has enough to win, but it would be interesting.
Feb-05-05  suenteus po 147: <euripides> Thanks again! It looks like they also thought it was too complex and not worth the effort! LOL!
May-02-13  EalingChampion: At the 29th move if I were white I would have pushed g4! That seems like it would open up the kingside.. if 29.. fxg4 30. Bxg4 Bxg4 31. Nxg4+ and the king is forced back and the rooks can come to the kingside and form a barrage, no?

And if Black doesn't take I don't see how he can prevent his kingside being blown up..

That looks good. Flohr has created a good position for himself here, and seems better in the final position as well.
