  Check It Out: Was 31...bxa5 his downfall, missing the 32.b5 tactic? His position is definitely cramped, but possibly defensible?

<Check It Out> Your avatar is way cool. I don't see any reasonable options. If 31...b5 then 32 cxb5 axb5
33 Qxb5 and White has 2 passed pawns with 4 pieces bearing down on the Queenside.

Aug-06-07  ALEXIN: One of the black weakest move is 29.Bc7.
Mar-24-13  wachter123680: No wait. I am not the only smart one here to see that 33.. Rc5 was Nunn's owned losing move?!/..2
