  Oxspawn: OK. I take back my apologies. The game was even more complicated! And I am not Kasparov. In fact I am quite proud of seeing it was not that easy.
Apr-09-13  M.Hassan: "Easy"
White to play 36.?
White is a pawn down.

36.Rxe8+ Rxe8
37.Qxf6 threatening mate next move on g7. black can delay mate by: 37.........Qh1+
38.Kxh1 Re7

Another variation is if the Rook is not captured:
36.Rxe8+ Kf7
37.Rh8 Qd1
38.Rxh7+ Kg8
39.Be3 Qh5
40.Rxh5 gxh5
Blck becomes too weak to win

Apr-09-13  zb2cr: The key to the position is White's Bishop on h6. If White could get his Queen to f6, the simultaneous mate threats on g7 and f8 could not be defended.

So how to accomplish this? Divert the overworked Rook by capturing 36. Rxe8+! If 36. ... Rxe8; 37. Qxf6 with the desired position. Black can also play 36. ... Kf7, but he's piece down with a lost position.

  chrisowen: Evermore a culpa in healthy it is son find 34.Qb1+?

35.kh2 in tempted by the light it is shadow in line low having rook in e8+ again bad a call it is single in e6 grabs it spectacle in very f6 radical.

Zone it slice king a piece nez in troop king and country queenf6 will mate in g7 lately again why it hope in b1 energy it suffering f6 in baggy it you in lately it sac f6 at rage dynamo re h6 ignoble.

In way it is sat down 34...Qb1+ gives it slight in turned the tables it I wagger in f6 draw he in claw back at door in get rook in a8 for heard it is sighted e8 hug the rails it ar in locate nit picking in a pinafore a pronged wedge in press it down in f6 free light again electric it dob in as.

  kevin86: Easier than yesterday:RxN+ (if RxR,QxBP forces mate.

White gains a knight.

Apr-09-13  MountainMatt: 36. Rxe8+ is all that really matters.
Apr-09-13  sambo: What about 36. Qxf6 immediately? If rook takes, then Rxe8 and mate after interposition. There are no king moves, and the only way to guard g7 is Re7 which loses right away, too.

I guess I think Qxf6 looks stronger than Rxe8, though both (obviously) win.

  Peligroso Patzer: <sambo: *** I guess I think [36.] Qxf6 looks stronger than [36.] Rxe8, though both (obviously) win.>

Maybe not so “obviously”: <36. Qxf6?? Rxf6 37. Rxe8+ Kf7> < > does not really look so strong for White; certainly it is not stronger than Kasparov’s continuation.

Apr-09-13  Shamot: Please pardon my ignorance, but I am very curious about what <chrisowen> writes. What is this language?! looking at the words my guess is that it is English, but written in some kind of "style" or with some kind of reference behind it. Can somebody, or <chrisowen>, can explain it to me? (in standard English, off course). Thanks.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Peligroso Patzer: <Shamot>: As I suggested once before, if <chrisowen>'s oeuvre interests you, to determine what language he uses you could enter some of his text in <Google Translate> and choose the <detect language> option.

I am strongly disinclined to embrace your hypothesis that <chrisowen> writes in English, despite some resemblence in the vocabulary.

Apr-09-13  Shamot: Thanks for the suggestion, <Peligroso Patzer>! I just did what you suggested and it detected it as English!

So, according to Guru Google it is not another language but English. I hope <chrisowen> can read this plain English and answer my question.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Once: I'm sure chrisowen will respond, but I'm not so sure that we will understand his answer!

So allow me a little suggestion. I think that our friend is a disciple of Stanley Unwin. Enjoy ...

  Once: See what I mean?
Apr-09-13  lajube: I believe he's a random word-and-phrase generator. The text is pulled from this site, scrambled and spewed.
Apr-09-13  Shamot: Thank you <Once> for the link. I enjoyed it! classic! :)

However, I am not sure if I can say the same thing about <chrisowen>'s reply. Well, one thing I know for sure now...... and that is what to do with his/her posts. I mean clever roost in bank find in scotch give ring to open path in the cobweb real claws of flow cattle at cliff again from dish.

So simple!

  morfishine: <Once> I actually was able to follow in fragments what the guy was saying, but still no clue about <chrisowen>
Apr-09-13  Patriot: <Shamot> If you think you will like reading <chrisowen>'s strange writing years into the future, then good luck. Otherwise try the 'ignore' feature. I have nothing against him personally but that stuff gets old.
Apr-09-13  Everett: <chrisowen> may write English words with Magyar (Hungarian) syntax, which is known to be quite strange compare to Germanic and Latin languages.

  PawnSac: <Once: I think that our friend is a disciple of Stanley Unwin. Enjoy ... >

Yea i think you hit that one right on the head there Once.

Apr-09-13  M.Hassan: <Patriot: <Shamot> If you think you will like reading <chrisowen>'s strange writing years into the future, then good luck. Otherwise try the 'ignore' feature. I have nothing against him personally but that stuff gets old.>
