Aug-09-05  bomb the bishop: I find this game to be very odd; first white opens his defense lines, then his king advances far too much, then black gives his rooks away to avoid mate and finally the game ends, but how can black's position be so bad after white lost plenty of time advancing his pawns?
Aug-09-05  mjk: <bomb the bishop> ~first White opens his defensive lines~ do you mean 17.h4 and 19.f4 they look two-fold to me. They cramp Black (look at the ♗ and the pitiful ♘) and they gain space against the Black ♔, making room behind them for White's pieces. Black has to give back the tempi shuffling his pieces to squares where the have even a little activity. And since Black is uncoordinated and can't get at the White ♔, I don't see that it is advanced too far -- it is being pre-staged for the endgame where it will be much better than Black's ♔.
