Nov-28-09  Everett: 16.Rxc6!

If 17..dxe5 18.Bxf7+ followed by Nxe5. Is this better for white than what black played in the game?

  SteinitzLives: The three pawns on the 6th rank from move 33 - 34, are one of the purest definitions of a pawn phalanx I have ever seen. Just overwhelming!

  FSR: <SteinitzLives> They're very impressive, all right. But let's not forget the games with three connected passed pawns on the <seventh> rank:

McDonnell vs La Bourdonnais, 1834

Janowski vs Ed Lasker, 1924

K Kokolias vs F Sigalas, 2005

Amazingly, the side without the pawns managed to draw all but the first of those games.

But <four> connected passed pawns on the seventh rank are just too much to handle:

F J Lee vs H Shoosmith, 1904

Dec-11-11  Nemesistic: There's a Kasparov/Karpov game i saw on Youtube a while back with a similar theme.

3 passed pawns on 7th rank and the game ended in a draw

  FSR: <Nemesistic> I can't see what K-K game that would be.
Dec-21-11  Nemesistic: <FSR> Iv been looking for that K-K game i alluded to above but i can't find it anywhere,so i think your right it can't be a K-K game ..But im 100% positive Karpov was playing ..Maybe it was a Karpov-Korchnoi game,it was definately a K-K game of some kind!

Il find it sometime soon
