  kevin86: black threatens mate via e1,e2,b2 white has no way to stop it!
Apr-03-04  boordgamer: Krasenkov thinking the bishop was doomed made the wrong move at 23.Nd3 when f1e1 was the correct move keeping the knight available to guard the bishop. If then 23...f6xe5,then 24.Qf7+ would made whites game decisive. In conclusion,23.f1e1 buys white the time to withdraw the bishop and possibly getting the draw.
Apr-03-04  ruylopez900: What's wrong with 22...fxe5??
Apr-03-04  JSYantiss: If 22...fxe5, then White will play 23. Qf7+ and regain the bishop on g7.
Apr-03-04  JSYantiss: Kevin86, I think you also have to put d2 in there as well, since White will be able to interpose the Rook(but it merely delays the inevitable mate at b2).
Apr-03-04  ruylopez900: <JSYantiss> Thanks. I was also confused why Black took two Rook moves to capture the Bishop, but your explanation explains it all.
Apr-03-04  boordgamer: <ruy>what do I know?:(
Jul-01-04  Schaccicity: Doesn't White have an easy win with 26 Qf7+ and 27 Qxa7? It is difficult to believe Shabalov would miss this. Am I missing something?
Jul-01-04  Shadout Mapes: The queen is protected by the rook.
Jul-01-04  Schaccicity: Thanks. A worthy goal is to eliminate such blind spots.
Jul-01-04  Shadout Mapes: I doubt you'd miss it in an actual game, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.
