  Calli: Pillsbury nurses a small advantage into a winning endgame. I think Teichmann's 29.Kd1 turned out badly. Pillsbury's Nf5 -> Nd4 seemed to leave no defense. Appreciate any comments.
Apr-10-05  paladin at large: <Calli>Thanks, I agree about 29. Kd1, but Teichmann desperately needs to get something out of his bishop. 20....c5 was a strong move, it would seem, giving Pillsbury more room and helping to fix the black queenside during the decisive phase.

  tamar: Once 20...c5 and 25...g5 had been played, Teichmann was losing ground with little play.

19 Ne5 with the threat of Nc6 looks like the best chance. Then Black has the choice of 19...c5 or 19...Nc3, but White gets active play for his pieces.

Apr-10-05  Catfriend: Teichmann's misfortune was that the bishops were of the same color. With opposite-colored Bs, perhaps he'd be able to survive it.

  Calli: Thanks for the responses. Looked at 29.Kf1 Nf5 30.Nf3 and how does Black continue? Seems like he should win the A pawn but could not come up with an exact sequence.

<Calli> I dodged this position the first time you mentioned it as it looked unclear, but Black has some trumps (...g4 and ...g3) I didn't notice which Shredder found which maintain control of the position.

After 29 Kf1 Nf5 30 Nf3 Kf6 31 Ra1 g4 32 32 hxg4 hxg4 33 Nh2 g3 34 Nf3 Rd6 35 fxg3 Nxg3+ 36 Kf2 Ne4+ 37 Ke3 Nc3 38 Re1

Black still is forcing responses with the threat of ...Re6+ Here Shredder prefers 38...Bf5 keeping the bind and threatening to come over to Ra6 if knight goes to d2 or 38...Bc2 attacking the b pawn, but there may be a simpler win by exchanging now.

38...Re6+ 39 Kf2 Rxe2+ 40 Rxe2 Nxe2 41 Kxe2 Bc2 42 Nd2 with a bishop versus knight endgame where the Black King can eventually penetrate since the knight is stuck on d2.
