Jun-15-04  zb2cr: What I can't see is why Bronstein didn't go for the cheap 30...Be4, going up by a Rook. Anyone help me out?
Jun-15-04  Catfriend: Yes. 30..♗e4 31.♖g5+. Though black is still better, he surely doesn't win any material, and just exposes his king.
Jun-15-04  zb2cr: Okay, thanks, <Catfriend>.
Jun-18-04  zb2cr: I wonder what the computer saw to resign here? 34 ... ♗xa2; 35 b3, ♗b1 and there's not an immediate crushing blow, although the computer has then lost one of its compensating Pawns.
Jun-18-04  Brian Watson: 34..Bxh3 35.gxh3 Rxf3, now f2 will be undefendable
Jun-18-04  zb2cr: <Brian Watson>, In your line, what happens if 36 Rb3? White has time for Kg2 no matter if Black swaps Rooks on b3 or not. It just doesn't seem all that forcing to me.

  crafty: 34. ... ♗xa2 35. ♔g1 ♗b1 36. ♖b3 ♖ef8 37. ♖e2 ♗e4   (eval -4.49; depth 16 ply; 500M nodes)
Jun-18-04  Brian Watson: Fair enough, f2 can be defended, as you say.
Jun-18-04  zb2cr: Thanks to both <crafty> and <Brian Watson>. Looks like the computer just saw the loss of one of its compensating Pawns, a not very charming defensive struggle with no possibility of regaining the initiative, and just threw up its transistors in despair. :)
