Mar-24-06  notyetagm: 39 ... ♖a1! is a nasty <skewer> against the loose f1-checking focal point.

White can resign since 40 ♕b2 loses a whole piece to 40 ... ♗f1+ and 41 ... ♕x♘.

Mar-24-06  you vs yourself: <notyetagm> After 41...♕x♘, can't white play 42.Qxa1?
Mar-27-06  nolanryan: <youvsyourself> knows the veritas. If 40 Qb2 Bf1, the correct follow up for black is 41 ...Re1! (not QxN, which allows Qxa1) and white will die, because moving the knight let's the queen slide in on the diagonal.
Apr-06-06  nolanryan: I was just looking at this game, Ivanchuk vs Kasparov, 1991 where Kasparov gets destroyed by Ivanchuk. I think that Kasparov played fine in the opening and that his problems came later, but here he plays 5 ...a6 rather than 5 ...cxd4. I wonder if this game is some sort of opening improvement.
Apr-06-06  nolanryan: Indeed, looks like this Amsterdam game was just following Kasparov's earlier Linares encounter with Ivanchuk
