  sleepyirv: I love positional miniatures.
Oct-16-08  Whitehat1963: So, what's the finish? I don't see it.
Oct-16-08  Shams: I don't see a forced win but black is just hosed. after 22...a5 I might try 23.♗e7 Δ ♖d6
May-19-11  Dr. J: Wouldn't 12...Qxd7 have been better, e.g. 13 Qxd7+ Nxd7 14 0-0-0 c5?
Sep-12-11  Cemoblanca: Here is a possible continuation of the game:

22.a5! 23.♖d4 [23.a3 is also good]

23...h6! (Luft!) 24.♖hd1 [24.♖c4 is also playable]

24.♔h7 25.♖c4 26.♕b5 [26...♕e8 should also be possible]

26.a3! ♕h5! 27.♗g3 ♖hd8 [I don't like 27...c5?! because of 28.♗d6!]

28.♖cd4 ♘c6 29.♖xd8 ♖xd8 30.♘xd8

and white would still have good winning chances here. Cheers! ;0)

Sep-12-11  Edeltalent: <Dr. J: Wouldn't 12...Qxd7 have been better> I'd think White answers 13.Qb4 to pressure the pawn on e4. Possible continuations would be 13...Qc6 14.Bh4 and suddenly Black's king is in trouble or 13...Qd5 14.Rd1 Qc4 15.Qxc4 Nxc4 16.Rd4 and e4 is lost (16...Nxb2 loses after 17.Rb4).
