Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-30-05  Albertan: If 22. Nxe6 Ncxe5 23. Nxe5 Nxe5 24. Bxe5 fxe5 25. Nxd8 Rxd8 leaving White up the exchange.
Mar-30-05  Albertan: 23...Ncxe5 could have lead to 24.Bxe5 Nxe5 25.Rxe5 Bxd6 26.Rxe6
Mar-30-05  Albertan: What about playing 25...Rhf8: then after 26.Rac1 Rc8 27.Rxc8 Bxc8 28.Rc1 Bd6 29.Qh6 Rg8 30.Qh7 Rf8 31.Bxd6 Qxd6
Mar-30-05  Albertan: Tyomkin's move of 31...bxa4 is forced due to the threat of 32.axb5.
Mar-30-05  Albertan: 35,b5!? is interesting. Most of us materialists would have likely chosen 35.Bxc4. However by playing 35.b5 IM Day shows us how pins can be so traumatic to experience.The move 36.Qe2 threatens 37.b6.
Mar-30-05  Albertan: Another idea was 37.bxa6 then play might have continued: 37...Bc6 38.Rb4 Bc7 39.Bxc7 Qxc7 40.Rb7 Qd8 41.Qe3
Mar-30-05  Albertan: 38.Qd3 seals the fate of Tyomkin's bishop. Even top players can get their pieces trapped.
Mar-30-05  Albertan: IM Day has a forced checkmate after 49.Rb8+ Bxb8 (the only move) 50.Qxb8# so Tyomkin resigned.

So where did Tyomkin go wrong? Was it on move twenty-one perhaps?

Maybe he could have played 21...Qc7 instead then play might have taken this course: 22.Rfe1 Rc8 23.a4 bxa4 24.Rxa4 Nxd4 25.Nxd4 Qxc3 26.Qxc3 Rxc3

Mar-30-05  Albertan: If IM Day had played the move 30.a4 instead one line which might have occurred is:30...bxa4 31.Rea2+ Rf8 32.Rxa4 Bf6 33.b5 Rb6 34.bxa6 Bc8 35.Bxf6 Qxf6 36.Qxf6 Rxf6 leaving White up a pawn.

The move 30...Bg5 seems to be a ? Instead it looks like 30...Be7 was a better idea.

Nice game IM Day! I like you move 28.Qh6.

It appears that your move of 9.d4 is a theoretical novelty. Prior to this game the move 9.Ne2 had been played (in Hecht vrs Timman,Helsinki 1972), and the move 9.Re1 was played in the game Bertholee-Shchekachev, Haarlem, 2002.

Mar-30-05  tldr3: Very nice win against a fine Canadian Grandmaster who played second board for our olympic team of 2004 at Calvia.
