  Honza Cervenka: Oops!
Oct-23-03  Lawrence: I saw this position some months ago and didn't realise that Black's Queen is absolutely gone.
Oct-23-03  AdrianP: This is the same position as arose in Suetin vs Y Zilberman, 1973

Zilberman played on for another 8 moves and then resigned... I've tentatively suggested that although things look pretty bad for black after Qd2, I'm not convinced that he's hopelessly lost (see posts on the linked game).

Oct-24-03  Lawrence: <AdrianP>, thanks for the cross reference, I see there's a lively correspondence going on about that game. I've just stuck this one into Junior 8; it reckons there's an advantage of a tad over 2 pawns for Whites (and even the indomitable Garry K. resigned recently after losing 2 pawns).
