Jun-20-07  Ostap Bender: 35.Qxc4 was a blunder (35.Qd1! wins). Black can play 35...Rc8! with advantage.

  Chicago Chess Man: Um, there's no advantage for black after 35..Rc8?? 36. Qxa4. You are right that 35 Qd1! would've been a quicker win.
Jun-20-07  Aspirador: Ostap is right: after 35...Rc8 36.Qxa4 Qb6+ 37.Kg2 Qe3 black wins, and quite surprisingly so.

Hi Ostap, have you been to Rio yet?

Jun-21-07  Ostap Bender: No, worse luck...

  Chicago Chess Man: I guess you're right. I wasn't looking far enough into the game. So it would probably go 38. Qd1 Rc1 and black's attack is too strong
Jun-21-07  Aspirador: <ChicagoChessMan>Also Rg8 threatens if the white king is on the g-file. But where else to go after 36...Qb6+, 37.Kf1 is answered by Rc1+.
