Oct-27-09  guaguanco: It might not have saved the game, But if white had played 37. Rd4 he'd have a chance to get his rook behind black's queenside pawns.

  PizzatheHut: What do y'all think of playing 12. b6 instead of 12. bxa6? Can anyone explain why 12. bxa6 (as played) is preferable? Intuitively I would play 12. b6 to keep the a-file closed and keep white's rook out of the game.
Apr-13-11  Mozart72: Barcza's 37.50% win probability in move 55 and Benko's 37.50% win probability in move 55 shows that the game should have been a 1/2-1/2.
