Feb-07-07  think: Wouldn't 28. ... Rxf8 29. gxf8=Q+ Qxf8 30. Rxf8+ Kxf8 hold better?
Feb-07-07  lentil: <think> after all those exchanges, W wins with 31. b3
Feb-07-07  Atking: Else 27. ...RxNd4 28.Rf8+ Kxg7 29.R1f7+ Kg6 30.Qf5+ (In the game Nd4 covered this square) 30. ...Kh5 31.Rxh7+ with mate. After 27.Rxf7! it's dead. White has an obvious advantage after 20.f5. Maybe 19. ...f5 should be played but it's already difficult.

  Jack Kerouac: (Que Nancy Sinatra's 'Boots Are Made For Walking' riff as background music);'young lady' walks up to JOKER sitting at an outdoor cafe table in Saigan in Kubrick's FULL METAL JACKET and says,"Miso horny." Would have been a better scene with a chess game on the table.

  TheAlchemist: To spoil the fun, Cebalo's ("Tsebalo") name is actually pronounced as "Misho" (akin to the Russian "Misha").

  kevin86: What looks like a brutal finish of mate with queen and rook must be tempored by the fact that they are the ONLY white pieces left! Actually,the material is about even.
Feb-07-07  sfm: <Maybe 19. ...f5 should be played but it's already difficult.> Yes, it is. All White's pieces (except Ra1) play an important role and black in fact has very few playable moves. The dark-square control by Nb3+Bb6 (espcially of d4) is tremendous, and white has easy plans, e.g. going after king (as he doees) or harassing the d5-pawn with the simple Rd1. While 19. ..,f5 will stop the disaster we witnessed it creates easily exploitable holes on the e-file. Obviously improvements must be found way earlier.
Feb-07-07  schnarre: What a pun!
Feb-07-07  Themofro: Nice game by white.
Feb-07-07  Bobwhoosta: By move 9 I already don't really like black's position. It seems he's concentrated merely on developing, forgetting that his opening requires him to mix things up and set up a counterattack. Where is that counterattack going to come from? He seems to be without a plan. (btw, the pun makes sense using the russian pronunciation if you just imagine the gopher from Winnie the Pooh saying it.) ;-)
