  InspiredByMorphy: Best Ive seen the Abbazia defense used.
Jan-26-04  fatbaldguy: Funny how white resigns just after black, with a superior position, gives white the chance to win an exchange with 28 c4+. If 28 ... Kf8, 29 Ba3, and if the king moves to h7 or g8, 29 Nf6 forks the rook. Am I missing something?
Jan-26-04  technical draw: Good analysis fbg. I don't think you're missing anything. Maybe time trouble? Or maybe the score is wrong?
Jan-26-04  ThunderThumbs: FBG, maybe they both missed it...I was having trouble finding anything as well. The only thing I can think of is that the bishop looks very strong on that diagonal, so maybe he had other ideas. White will lose the b3 pawn as well so he is essentially only gaining a pawn. After that it looks like the queenside pawns are easy pickins, with RE4 or KG7 and H6 first. H3 then looks like the only option to save the knight, where it will be in a bad position. Any masters here want to comment on it? Can someone plug this position into Fritz?
Jan-26-04  fatbaldguy: <ThunderThumbs> I agree that N:b3 is dangerous, though I would still try gaining the exchange and then defend my queenside pawns as best I can, i.e. not very well in my case. I'm not sure I have to play h3 since the knight should have f6 available in every variation.
