Sep-08-05  yunis: ??!! why the resign '?probably time deficit!
Dec-29-06  ernieb: 41...Ra8 42.Ra5 and the c5 pawn can't be protected.
Jun-14-08  apexin: 1st breyer in the database.
Oct-20-08  jack1501: how do you know this is the first breyer defense in the database?
Jan-01-11  BLarsen1967: <ernieb>Yes,but still it makes no sense,why would merely losing a pawn cause Black to resign? - after 42..c6 43.Nxc5 cxd5 44.cxd5 Kxd5 45.Nxa6+ Kd6 46.Ke4 Black has everything to play for
Jan-01-11  Sparta: <BLarsen1967> 41. ... Ra8 42. Ra5 c6 43. Ke4 looks better than snatching the c-pawn right away. After 43. ... cxd5+ 44. cxd5 c4 45. Rc5 c3 46. Rc6+ Ke7 47. Nd4, it seems the endgame favors white. Black's c-pawn will fall and white will blockade black's a-pawn with his rook while creating a passed pawn on the kingside.
Jan-02-11  BLarsen1967: <Sparta> that's true... - Only,I think Black can come up with better counterplay,say 41..Ra8 42.Ra5 c6 43. Ke4 Bc3 44.Rxc5 Rc8 45.f5 gxf5+ 46.Kxf5 a5
Jan-05-11  Sparta: <BLarsen1967> Hmm looks like 43. ... Bc3 is an improvement. I'm not sure I would go after that c-pawn since the rook looks rather stuck, so maybe 44. Ra2 a5 45. f5 looks better. If 45. f5 gxf5 46. Kxf5 cxd5 47. cxd5 Kxd5, white wins by Nc7+
Jan-08-11  BLarsen1967: <Sparta> ok,picking up the line at 43..Bc3 - now 44.Ra2 a5 45.f5 gxf5+ 46.Kxf5 cxd5 47.cxd5- and like you point out,here NOT 47..Kxd5,so instead 47.. a4 48.Nf4 a3 49.Ne6 Bb2 50.Ke4 Ra4+ - and here it's still too early for Black to resign!
