|Nov-18-03|| ||matey: 22.Qb3 will defend the threatened checkmate but then Black will force the issue by a quiet but powerful closing move. |
|Nov-18-03|| ||tayer: i.e. 22. Qb3 Rac8 23. ... Qb1#, also if 22. Ne1 Rac8 with similar result |
|Nov-19-03|| ||fatbaldguy: would white hold on 18 Qa4 ? no rush in taking the knight, it's pinned anyway. |
|Sep-23-06|| ||DanielBryant: According to Soltis, Romanovsky arrived 75 minutes late to the game and only had 45 minutes to reach the first time control at move 30. He blitzed every move until his 11th move.|
|May-11-09|| ||Vincere: Actually, after 22. Qb3, 22. ..Rac8 don't force a win because, ex: |
22. Qb3 Rac8 23. Be3 (or any move) Rxc3+ 24. bxc3, and the white Queen protects both c2 as b1.
The right would be: 22. Qb3 b4 23. Be3 bxc3 24. bxc3 Rac8 followed by 25. Qxb8 Rxb8 26. Kd2 Qc2+ 27. Ke1 Rb2 28. Rd2 Rb1+ 29. Bd3#.
But I doubt Romanovsky saw all that, pretty impresive anyway.
|Aug-07-12|| ||rranjann: 19 Rxd3 Rxd3 20 Bd2 should be winning for white|
|Aug-07-12|| ||perfidious: < rranjann: 19 Rxd3 Rxd3 20 Bd2 should be winning for white>|
That loses to 20....Rxc3+.
The losing move was 21.Qxa3; if White plays 21.Qb3 instead, Romanovsky still has a powerful attack after 21....b4 22.Be3 Qc7, but I'm not sure it's enough for his piece.
|Apr-15-15|| ||ughaibu: Vincere: the knight is pinned, so black will play 23...Qb1 not 23...Rxc3.|
