Apr-10-10  acirce: White had a very good position anyway, but Pachman said he missed 40.Re6 fxe6 41.Qg6+ Kf8 42.Qxf6+, easily winning. Sure, but even this is not nearly as convincing as 40.Re8! threatening among other things 41.Qg6+ fxg6 42.Rg8+ Kh7 43.hxg6# !

Other threats are 41.Bxf7 and 41.Be4, and Black simply cannot defend. For instance 40..Rd8 41.Bxf7! Rxe8 42.Qg6+ Kf8 43.Qg8+ or 41..Qc6+ 42.Kh2 Rxe8 43.Bd5 or 41..Be7 42.Rxe7 (or 42.Bd5) Qxe7 43.Qg6+.

  GrahamClayton: Pachman includes this game in his book "Modern Chess Strategy". He thinks that Black's decisive error was 31...♔g7, planning h6} & (g5. Black wants to move his pawns of white squares to avoid attack by the White bishop, but the weakness of the white squares is highlighted after the pawn advances. 31...h5 was a better move.

  zydeco: I think black could have had a slight advantage with 16.....Rfd8 and if 17.Qe2 Qxd3 18.Qxe7 Nd5 19.Qa7 and maybe 19.....Be5.

It seems illogical to play 10.c3 and 11.e5 together -- creating a weakness on d3.

Nice variation <acirce>! For a grandmaster to miss two wins at move 40 suggests that Filip was in extreme time-trouble and just moving around to make the control.
