Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-24-09  great uncle bulgaria: im guessing that the general idea is to keep checking the black king until the queen traverses onto the c5/c6 square eliminating the black queen and queening the queenside pawn.

that about it ??

Jul-09-12  Poisonpawns: 35.h4! would have allowed white to draw by perpetual. If 35..Qg7? 36.Qg5+ wins, and if 35..Rxa2 then black just keeps checking. The key is control of the dark squares around the King.On move 37...Qg7 taking control of the immediate squares around the king, White still has 38.Qd6!which should hold.
Dec-29-12  Ulhumbrus: On 7 Bd2 e5 8 Ndb5 a6 9 Nxd5 axb5 ( 9...Qxd5?? 10 Nc7+ forks black's qurn and king) 10 e4 White has a lead of three moves in development and Black's b5 pawn is attacked
May-13-13  DrGridlock: "The commencement of the tournament in Zurich demonstrated something that I had in fact both feared and expected. I had clearly not yet surmounted the crisis in my form and my results in the first half of the tournament, seven points out of 14 games, were far from satisfactory. I shared the 8th and 9th places and was in no way satisfied with the quality of my play. Playing through my three wins in the first half of the tournament reveals that in them Szabo made me the present of a pawn in the first few moves, Boleslavsky was unlucky enough to go in for an incorrect line and <Stahlberg allowed himself to be outplayed in a clearly drawn position.>" --- Paul Keres
