|May-16-04|| ||Hidden Skillz: this game was an example in 1 of his videos..strong attack on the king side.. |
|May-17-04|| ||pikoro: I still don't see why Black resigns... |
|May-17-04|| ||TrueFiendish: Can the threat of 19.Rf6 and Rxh6 be met? Methinks not. |
|May-17-04|| ||ConLaMismaMano: What about the following...
If 18...Kh8 19.Nf7+ Nxf 20.Rxf g6 21.Qf6+ Kg8 22.Qg7++
If 18...Bd7 19.Bxh7+ Kxh7 20.Qg6+ Kg8 21.Nf7 Nxf7 22.Rxf7, and black is lost.
If 18...Qc7 19.Bxh7+ (19...Kh8 20.Bd3 g6 21.Qxg6+ Qg7 22.Qe8+ Qf8 23.Qxf8++) Kxh7 20.Qg6+ Kg8 21.Qe8+ Kh7 22.Rf8 Ng8 23.Rxg8 Kh6 24.Qh5++
There are just too many threats.
|May-17-04|| ||TrueFiendish: I'm thinking if 18...Kh8 19.Rf7... |
|Nov-03-05|| ||Chris00nj: Well 18...Kh8 19. Qxh6 gxh6 20. Nf7+ winning a piece.|
|Apr-10-08|| ||nezhmet: ConLaMismaMano in your second line, black could play 20. ...Kh8 and, amazingly, escapes ok. 19. Rf6 is probably best there|
|Oct-15-08|| ||gorgo: What can be done after 18....Bd7 19.Rf6 Qxe5 if 20.Qxe5 then 20. ...Nxg4 can black escape with R+B+P for queen?
If after 19....Qxe5, 20. Bxh7+ Kh8 21. Qxe5 Nxg4 22.Qc7 Nxf6 23.Qxb7 Rf8 24.Bg6 e5 black may be able to save himself, what do you think?
|Jun-01-12|| ||backrank: 18. ... Bd7 is undoubtedly best (after 18. ... Kh8 there are several winning lines, as pointed out by the previous kibitzers).
19. Bxh7+ loses for White, since after Kxh7 20. Qg6+ Kh8 (or Kg8) 21. Nf7+ Nxf7 22. Rxf7 Black can cover g7 by Qe5.
Dzindzi gives the beautiful line (18. ... Bd7) 19. Rf6! Qe7 20. Bxh7+! Kh8 21. Rxh6!! (for sheer brilliancy, since 21. Ng6+ is much simpler) Qxg5 22. Nf7 mate!
Can Black improve here? Certainly not by (19. Rf6!) Kh8 20. Rxh6! (gxh6 21. Nf7#).
But the suggestion of <gorgo> deserves attention. It's in fact Black's only chance. Maybe this possiblity to give the queen has been overlooked by Dzindzi as well as by his opponent. Or they considered it hopeless for Black? After (18. ... Bd7 19. Rf6!) Qxe5 (!) 20. Qxe5 Nxg4 21. Bxh7! Kh8! I would however prefer 22. Qxd4 Nxf6 23. Bg6 to 22. Qc7 (as suggested by gorgo). Probably it's really a technical win for a GM, although Black can still put up a fight.|
|Jun-01-12|| ||RookFile: The position after the 13th move is the critical point. That's where you spend a lot of time thinking if you're black. You consider 13.....Bd7, not really worried about 14. Nxb7. However, you are worried about moves like Ng5 and/or Bxh7+ from white.|
How bad is 13... Rxf3, i.e. 14. Rxf3 Nxe5 and Nxd3.
Not sure what to play here, my two minutes are up.
|Jun-02-12|| ||backrank: <RookFile> You're putting up an interesting question. |
Dzindzi himself recommends 13. ... Nf5 (14. Nxf5 exf5 15. Rae1 'with a better game for White').
After 13. ... Bd7 14. Ng5 looks very strong.
Your suggestion 13. ... Rxf3 !? is very interesting, I didn't see that move at all! After 14. Rxf3 Nxe5 Black seems to be winning, since the Nd6 is hanging. 15. Rh3 doesn't look too promising ... but hey! 15. Qf4! is the deus ex machina, Black dare not take the Nd6 now (mate on f8), while after 15. ... Nxf3+ 16. gxf3 the Nd6 is protected again. White is two pawns down then, but still has good attacking chances, as it seems.
