Sep-17-03  ramdaz: If g7 x f6, then Rg8 is mate
Sep-17-03  Halfpricemidge: So what's Fominyh's most stubborn defence, Rook to F7?
Sep-17-03  JSYantiss: That would just lose a rook, which he doesn't have to do. He could play Kd8 instead.
Sep-17-03  sloukakos: why cant black play 30 .. h6?? why white wins after this?

  crafty: 30...h6 31. ♖xh6 ♔d8 32. ♖h7 ♗e8 33. ♖hxg7 ♘d6 34. h4   (eval 6.11; depth 16 ply; 500M nodes)
Sep-17-03  CapAnson: If 30.. h6?? then white can play 31. Rxh6!
Sep-17-03  Ghengis Pawn II: Black was in dire need of some proper development, it was like playing with half a deck. Although I find this opening rather grotesque, white seemed to know what to do with it. The pinning to grab some pawns is my favourite part!

  kevin86: Strange-white's Qg4 looks like a 19th century move-and it works!

On the ending,white is two pawns and a mile ahead in development,so should win easily.

  thegoodanarchist: For an alternate GOTD title, I was going to suggest:

"Fominyh Grits"

However, credit must go to <Cibator>, who posted before me:

<Fominyh grits his teeth and resigns.>
