Jan-10-07  blazerdoodle: I'm not a strong player, but I've been trying to figure out why the 1-0 result. Perhpas Black lost on time? I can't figure out what Black's move would be anyway. How about 25...g6, and if 26 h4 Kg7.

Doesn't blacks rook hold everything?

If the White knight moves, Black just trades off pieces? I'd be curious to see if one of the guys have to say about this.

Dec-22-09  jerseybob: First off, white is a pawn up, a passed pawn no less. White also has a bind on the position, with black's moves severely limited. I don't see any immediate forcing continuations, but a general slow closing of the noose should do it. For example, after your suggested 25..g6 26.a4,b6(preventing a5) 27.c4 and so on. Get the idea?

  Honza Cervenka: Instead of 19.0-0-0 it was much better to play 19.exf6 e.p.! with a threat 20.Qxh7 gxf6 21.Rg3. Also 20.Nb3! with next 21.Nxc4 was more effective way to win due to pin of Pd5.
