  Mateo: A tense struggle. Pachman went into a subtle trap and lost a pawn and the game. After 39... Qb1? 40. Qc3 threats 41. Rc1 winning the Queen. So Black must play 40... Qd1 (only move); White answers 41. Rc1; Black Queen must go to d4 (only square) and after the Queen exchange, the d4 pawn is lost.

Pachman should have played 39... Qa5 with a somewhat better game for White.

Jan-03-06  twinlark: I can see why Pachman has no taste for the endgame, after the pawn comes off, against a fellow GM.

  Fusilli: <twinlark> The game was probably adjourned, after which Pachman resigned without resuming it.

  zydeco: Panno is ridiculously patient. At 20, he plays like an old man.

  zydeco: Pachman in Modern Chess Strategy says that he had a winning endgame: the correct plan from move 37 is to play ....g5, put the queen on d6 and the king on b8, then trade heavy pieces along the c-file, and the knight will be better than the bishop. But he looked at his opponent's clock, saw that Panno had only a few seconds left, and "decided to give him a few surprises."
