Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-26-07  CaptainEvans: With 22...b4 I assume Penrose overlooked the combination that follows (or at least underestimated the threat). Hats off to Barden for playing 26. Nf5 - it was an absolute corker and wins the game!

  luzhin: A very nice game, but I don't think that 26.Nf5+ is necessarily a winning move -- if Penrose had played 31...Qd8 with the idea 32.Nf7 Qd2!, then White's task would have been by no means easy.

  offramp: I think 32...Qa7 might have held things together. White will lose the knight on h8, and have 4 pawns for it. It would be close.

  watwinc: 32... Qa7 33 Bb3 seems to hold
Aug-20-14  ColeTrane: maybe if black had played h6 some time
