Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-11-09  achieve: Great vision and endgame technique by good ole <Ulf>!

17...Rfd8

???

18 Rxd8 Rxd8
19 Bxf6!!

This is the sort of winning attempt you see from Andersson when he is in an a-g-g-r-e-s-s-i-v-e- mood!

Just look at the pawn structures with all the pieces off:

And there are TWO weaknesses in Black's camp - pawns h7 & a6 - to work on for Ulf...

Extremely instructive technical skill at display here, although Black may have missed one or two slight chances for a Draw.

Oct-16-11  DieHard: I agree! I'm skeptical of 11. ... Bxc5. I think 11. ... Nxc5 would have been better, and avoided Ulf's early domination of the d-file.
Nov-12-16  maxeta22: Interesting game, compare after 29 RD6 with the game Carlsen - Karjakin. Similar position arising after 25 .. Ke7 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016

Carlsen could not win.

Nov-13-16  Nogaluy: Indeed they are similar positions to Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016. Similar but not equal. Andersson has two weak pawns (a6 and h7) to target, whike Carlsen hado only h7. Black queenside pawns where advanced in Andersson - Ivanov.

Anyway, a good lesson !!
