Kibitzer's Corner
May-03-06  Silman: 4...,f5; correctly wanting to push a pawn weakness, at the same time preparing the lon dark diagonal for his KB.

8.e3, restraint from JH who usually likes to explode the centre with an e4 push in this opening.

10...,Re8?!; There is plenty of time to play this move.

11.b5!, black no longer has the chance to play a successful ...,c5;

15.cxd5, creating a further imbalance of the pawn structure.

19..., Qe7;? Putting the queen in front of the rook strikes me as wrong. Preference should go to 19...,a6; putting pressure on whites b pawn. If 20.ba, ba; 21.Qxa6, black wins material with "21...,Bb5;!

27.Rxc7, material proof that blacks strategy with 19...,Qe7; was faulty.

34.Qc3, well spoted JH.

36.Rxe2, black is faced with loss of Q or mate.

  fredthebear: The finish combines two tactical concepts to remove a defender: overwork/overload, and undermining.

After the interposing self-pin 35...Bf8, the Black queen is overworked. She cannot defend both bishops. 36.RxBe2 threatens to undermine the Black queen as defender of the Bf8, the mating square. If she leaves, the game is over. Re2 would be a lethal move even if it did not involve a capture.
