|Jan-26-11|| ||KingG: I don't understand why Black didn't play 21...Bxd3+, just to reduce the pressure on his light squares.|
|Jan-26-11|| ||perfidious: <KingG> In his annotations, Kasparov gives the following line: 21....Bxd3+ 22.Qxd3 h5 23.g4! hxg4 24.Rxf5! Qb6+!
25.Kc2 exf5 26.Qxf5+ Kh6 27.Rg1!, stating 'with no comfortable defence against 28.Nxg4+'.|
The loss was by overstepping the time limit, but there was little hope in any case.
|Jan-30-11|| ||KingG: <perfidious> Thanks for posting that beautiful line, even if I don't see the reason Black has to play 22...h5.|
After looking at the position for a bit longer, it does seem that things aren't as simple for Black after 21...Bxd3 as I thought. For example, 21...Bxd3 22.Qxd3 f6 23.Rxf5! is pretty devestating. However, it looks like 22...Bd6! might hold. For example 22...Bd6 23.Nc4 Qb5+ 24.Ka1 Be7 25.Rb1 Qa6!, and I'm not sure how White breaks through, as the pin on the knight is annoying(Black is threatening ...Rac8).
|Feb-25-12|| ||AlphaMale: Marovic (lightly) annotated this game in his perfunctory <Play the Queen's Gambit> (Maxwell Macmillan Chess, 1991).|
One of those mistakes that Kasparov too often committed in won positions. 31.Rxe5 Rxf2 32.Re6+ wins easily. I was in most severe time trouble but I managed to notice that the e-pawn is the key to my defence. So I played...
Kasparov started to think and then played quickly the sequence
With my flag almost falling I did not see the simple 33...Rd8 with most probably a draw...>
|Jul-26-17|| ||bla bla: why not 12...Bxf6?|
|Jul-28-17|| ||Howard: White takes on c5, and Black has to recapture with his Queen. Then, White replies 14.Ne4, hitting the Queen and also threatening a possible Nd6.|
In other words, Black's bishop on e7 is presently covering the d6 square...but not after he replies 12...Bxf6.
