  PhilFeeley: Interesting...playing on despite being down 2 knights. I guess she thought her pawns could advance. The original loss came early and was very questionable: 24...dxe5 left the knight hanging. I wonder what she thought she was trying to do?
Aug-26-07  euripides: I think 24...dxe5 might be good, giving her extra material back to seize the initiative.

Black had a lot of pawns for the knights; for instance, she has four pawns for the knight before her 34th and five pawns for two knights at move 40. After move 44 White has no pawns left and is only likely to win if she can use the knights to launch an attack on the king - as happened in the game.

It's very hard to tell what's going on, but perhaps black lost her grip with 34...f3.

Aug-26-07  psmith: According to Fritz 5.32 34...f3 appears to be OK. The losing move was 35...Re2. Instead 35...Rxe1+ leads to rough equality after 36. Rxe1 f2 37. Qb1 (note that 37. Rc1 Qc6+! leads to mate!) fxe1/Q+ 38. Qxe1 Qc6+ 39. Kg1 Rd8 (= according to Fritz 5.32).
