Kibitzer's Corner
May-30-06  Poisonpawns: This my friends was a hidden gem until i saw it analysed a few days ago.Brillant play Sanakoev and against the trainer of khalifman at that.He retains all of his pawns which creates a beautiful picture,i wonder how many Gm games there are where one side plays, say at least 20 moves and wins retaining all the pawns.Enjoy this one 11..Bb7!
May-30-06  Nomen Nescio: There are a number of moves in this game that I do not understand. For instance, I would have played 16. NxP.
May-30-06  Poisonpawns: <nomen nescio> 16.Nxd4? would lose immediately to Nxd4 followed by a brutal knight capture on e2 square.According to Sanakoev 22.Bd6? cause white to go downhill:Inconsistent. Now White wins a Rook, but in the ensuing complicated endgame, Black's Pawns are unstoppable. More interesting would have been 22. Ne4! with the threats of Nd6 and Nf6+, after which, in spite of the exchange and 4(!) extra Pawns, Black would have had difficulty in finding a winning continuation:

1. The natural 22. ...e5?! 23. Nf6+ Kh8 (the continuation 23. ...Kg7 24. Bh6+! Kxh6 25. Ng4+ Qxg4 26. Qxg4 Rac8 27. Bxc6 Rxc6 28. Qd7 Rfc8 29. Qf7 favours White) 24. Bh6 Nc5 25. Bxf8 Qxf8 26. Qxc6 Rc8 27. Qd5 Qe7 28. Ng4 would result in an unclear position, while the attempt to hold on to the extra material by playing 24. ...Rd8 (instead of 24. ...Nc5) would allow White to build an original mating net: 25. Ne8! f5 26. Bg7+ Kg8 27. Qd5+ Rxd5 28. Bxd5+ Qe6 29. Bxe6#. 2. The endgame, "Rook and three Pawns vs. two Bishops", arising in many variations has a double-edged character. Evidently, the only decision was the paradoxical transposition to an endgame of four Pawns vs. Rook: 22. ...f6! 23. Nd6 Ne5! 24. Bxe5! fxe5 25. Nxc8 Rxf3 26. Ne7+ Kf7 27. Bxf3 Kxe7! 28. Bxa8 Nc3. The analysis of this endgame, started upon sending my 18th move, and continuing, of course with interruption, over a month until the receipt of White's 22nd move, showed that Black's chances for a win were real. After the text move, the position simplifies into an obvious advantage for Black.G Sanakoev
