  kevin86: A good game by the holder of the white pieces. White simplifies at the end by sacrificing the exchange to get a simple pawn ending.

White had several good "SLAP SHOTS" in this one.

BTW,not that important,but I am first-hee hee!

Apr-27-07  Alphalegacy: nice endgame technique

  Peligroso Patzer: 45. Nc6 is a nice interference tactic.
Apr-27-07  twin phoenix: a very sound game. white could have snatched a pawn a couple of times but always waited until it was correct. oh if only i could be that patient!
Apr-27-07  hellopolgar: black is horrible. why give up the extremely powerful white bishop for an undeveloped knight?

  outplayer: A grandmaster can outplay an international master tactically. The e6-pawn frequently becomes weak in this advance variation.

  Chessmensch: This game is not the "same old, same old." It is instructive for that reason and the variety is refreshing.
Apr-27-07  AniamL: 45. Nc6! Great move.

  keypusher: <hellopolgar. black is horrible. why give up the extremely powerful white bishop for an undeveloped knight?>

black is horrible? No, Black here is an international master, who could crush you with no trouble. Giving up the white-squared bishop, which is Black's worse bishop, in order to inflict doubled rook pawns on the opponent looks pretty tempting to me.

I don't understand kibitzers who persist in pretending that anyone who loses a chess game is an idiot.

  fm avari viraf: The end game tactics is really instruction & many "slap sticks" at the end.
Apr-27-07  BadTemper: visually interesting game, everything else aside.
