Oct-18-12  vinidivici: Csom Nonchalantly Evening, it should be.

Neglecting all kind of threats from the opponent, that must be a big guts out there.

  al wazir: 25. Qe6+ looks pretty strong too. But the idea is much the same
Oct-18-12  Jamboree: Didn't black missing a possible drawing opportunity on move 25? What about this line:

25. ... Rxe3!? 26. c7 Qxc7! 27. Rxc7 Red3 28. Rc8+ Kf7 29. d8=Q Rxd8 30. Rxd8 Rb3! and white's b-pawn cannot be defended! After a later Rxb4, if black can successfully maneuver his bishop to d6 or c5, then he can set up a very difficult blockade. Black should then just leave his king on the K-side to defend the pawns, lock down the Q-side/center with the B + 2 pawns battery, and use the rook to harass the white K and pawns. Perhaps with perfect play after a loooong struggle white could find a winning line, but it looks doubtful.

The key is to play 26. ... Qxc7! rather than the more natural-looking Qxd7?, which loses.

  Abdel Irada: Actually, the text is stronger than 25. Qe6, which unpins the rook on d3, permitting it to help restrain the d-pawn.

Oct-18-12  newzild: <Jamboree> Yeah, your line looks pretty convincing. It certainly gives Black good drawing chances.

Oct-18-12  dotsamoht: <Jamboree> You are right. That was clearly the way to go. The enchanted evening would have been a tedious nightmare.

<FSR> Nice pun.

Oct-18-12  Sem: Very nice pun. An ode to Oscar Hammerstein.
Oct-18-12  Sem: BTW, are all of you aware of the YouTube videos by AnnieK? They are there for everyone who wishes to pronounce the names of Russian and Czech chess players properly. I was dumbfounded when I learned how I had mistreated the name of Bogolyubov. Enjoy!
Oct-18-12  scormus: Great pun!

1... g6. I suppose the Dragon cannot be any more accelerated than that :\

Perhaps the moral is on such an evening one should never be in a hurry about anything.

Oct-18-12  rapidcitychess: After playing 25.c6, I would have to hurry out of the playing room. Playing moves that leave my queen hanging always makes me feel quesy.
