Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-22-04  mjk: Black finds the only drawing moves 53...♔a2, 55...a3<Nalimov>
Aug-20-07  adnol: Ugly game, I don't like game where by 20th move all pieces but pawns and 1-2 minors are left out.

Hmm Why not 9. Qd3, followed by Qc4+ for white? There's probably something I don't see, but it seems to me, white forks black's queen and king afterwards and there's no good way to avoid it.

What do you guys think?

  Gypsy: <adnol: Ugly game ...> Interesting, and I just thought: "What a cool game!"

<Hmm Why not 9. Qd3, followed by Qc4+ for white? There's probably something I don't see, but it seems to me, white forks black's queen and king afterwards and there's no good way to avoid it.>

After <9.Qd3? Nb6> Black is a healthy piece ahead. I am sure Pachman liked his own continuation better.

Nov-19-15  zydeco: Pachman was so close to a win here - and a half-point more would have given him a place in the Candidates Tournament.

30.Rxb7 e3 is a fairly straightforward draw: if 31.fxe3 Rh2 32.h7 a5; if 31.h7 Rxf2+ 32.Kg1 Rf8
