Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-29-06  capablancakarpov: 41.Kxf7!, great move, if Bxa8 42.Nf6+ Kh6 43.g5++
Apr-18-17  clement41: The overall level of play looks somewhat sloppy to me. For ex, it seems that 10 Nf5 is both pointless (apart from trading white's good bishop...) and premature. However, a few interesting ideas:
29 Rh1, opposing black's battery on the h file is good strategically: by removing one pair of rooks white ensures Black can no longer penetrate on this file. The choice of entering a B vs N endgame (where Black probably stands better due to pawns on both flanks+targets on light squares for the bishop) is more committing than keeping a pair of rooks. Also the pawn levers ...a4 and ...h5 by black are of interest. 36...Rxb3? 37 Ra8!
It seems that the whole black conception with ...Bg3/...Rh2+ is flawed. Nice 41 Kxf7!

  louispaulsen88888888: I agree 10Nf5 seems like a waste of time.
Personally I would’ve recaptured with 30.Rxh1.

White would have done better to defend the cpawn with 33.Rc1.It would only be temporary passivity as the Black rook will be evicted soon by the knight.
