May-31-05  bambino3: kramnik might have been better off capturing with the bishop on move #11 instead of doubling his pawns.
May-31-05  Catfriend: <bambino3> I disagree, for two reasons:

1) 11..Bxf6 12.Qxd6. the lost pawn is an important one!

2) 12.e5, with good positional advantage

So 11..gxf6 is quite the only move here.

May-31-05  Shams: <Catfriend> hmm, white gets the d-pawn with 12.Qxd6 but after ...Bxc3 his extra pawn is the doubled and isolated c-pawn. White cannot hope to control the d-file with his rooks, whereas black can pressure the weak pawns and the e-pawn with his bishop. I doubt white can hope for an advantage here.

but after 12.e5 white has a healthy extra pawn and a monster game, since ...Be7 is forced and then 13.exd6, etc. of course if 12...dxe5?? then 13.Qe4

  AgentRgent: <Shams: hmm, white gets the d-pawn with 12.Qxd6 but after ...Bxc3 his extra pawn is the doubled and isolated c-pawn.> I assume you mean after 12...Qxd6 13. Rxd6 then Bxc3, since 12...Bxc3 gives 13. Qxd8#
May-31-05  Catfriend: <Shams> Yes, I saw that, and that's why I gave <2)> :)
May-31-05  Shams: <AgentRgent> of course, that's why I omitted a move number. I was in a hurry. swap queens, then 14.bxc3 Ke7 15.Rb6 Ra7 or some such. yes?
May-31-05  Shams: <Catfriend> you did make it seem as if white had two winning lines, was my point. also white has not just a positional plus but a nice extra pawn after 12.e5. anyway, maybe I'm being pedantic. I agree that 11...gxf6 is forced. cheers.

by the way my girlfriend and I just picked up a new cat, ourselves. the old one isn't being too friendly. any tips?

May-31-05  Catfriend: <Shams> Yes, you're right:)

Congrats for the cat!

Sep-16-10  anjyplayer: Nice way to force Black for Richter Rauzer.
Dec-10-10  grin44: I admire the "poisoned" sacrifice 36.Rxf7
Jun-25-11  squaresquat: OK,-44...KxR;45.RxR,Ke6....and now?

  Sastre: 43...Kxe5 44.Rxf8 Ke6 45.Ra8 Kxf7 46.Rxa4 Rh3 47.Rf4+ Kg6 48.Rf2 should be winning for White.
