Sep-09-09  King.Arthur.Brazil: After Rfe8, teh black position is for the less, equal, active B and R. White tryed an KS attack, but this didn't work. 18...Re7! not weak the P structure! with 21. Qg4 the d4 P is dead, adn there's no pin, Smyslov tried to find. After Qd3, the black has good position and win the P! Rc7 and Black has still a long run to win. Smyslov cannot sustain his Bf6, nor the BK come to fight. So he tried to make somepassed P on QS on 37.b4.
Sep-09-09  King.Arthur.Brazil: While this, his was caught by a trap 44.g4!, (treated gxf3, gxf3 Nxf3 and Nxh3, win 2 P on KS!) After Rd6! Black wins a piece,(Kh2, Nxg4+ and Nxe3)48.Kh2 is forced in view of 48...g3 (followed by Ng4-f2++) lose the Bg1. But Black still had a KS attack, to force white to give his QS passed P. 56.a7? Whitge is tired! Better was b5, treatening a6-Ra5. 59...Kf4! (treats Rg3+ and Ng4+ win the WR)
Sep-09-09  King.Arthur.Brazil: With Rb4 black force W to take his Rb6, so he can give mate with Re4-Kg3-Nh2+ and Te1++. White has no hope.
