Jan-10-18  jerseybob: An inspired swindle which Marshall would've loved. White's positionally busted after 23..Bd7, so why not take a flyer with 24.Rxe5?!

  Fusilli: <jerseybob> I'd say it's pretty even after 23...Bd7. 24.Rxe5 is objectively wrong but maybe worth the risk if you are playing for a win.

After 26.Bd5+

The computer indicates 26...cxd5 27.Qxd5+ Kg7 28.Qxe5+ Kf7 and black is clearly better. This is not so easy to see.

Audaces fortuna iuvat... at least here.

Jan-11-18  Granny O Doul: Yeah, I didn't see what was so bad about White after 23...Bd7. Mostly though, I am happy to see that George Kramer is evidently still alive. I was a bit leery when I noticed three games of his brought up to the front page.

After 26.Bd5+ The computer indicates 26...cxd5 27.Qxd5+ Kg7 28.Qxe5+ Kf7 and black is clearly better. This is not so easy to see.> Agreed. What I think Horowitz missed was that after 29.Qf6+,Kg8! and black has time to consolidate. Where I differ is the assessment after 23..Bd7; I don't think it's even at all, though I'm not claiming a win for black. But if it ever gets to an ending white's in trouble with all those weak pawns. A possible plan for black: After say 24.b3,Rc8 planning c6. What do you think?
Jan-12-18  jerseybob: <Fusilli: <jerseybob> I'd say it's pretty even after 23...Bd7.> You're closer to being right than I thought. My original suggestion 24.b3,Rc8 is tactically bad, doesn't work. But 24..Re8 might be worth a look: 25.Re1,Bd4+ 26.Kh1 (26.Be3?,Rxe3! 27.Rxe3,Qf4!)26..Rxe1+ 27.Qxe1,h6! 28.Bh4,g5 and black dominates the dark squares.

  Fusilli: <jerseybob> 24.b3 Re8 25.Bh6 Qf7 26.Qf2 looks quite even. I think the white rook is well placed on e4. It is untouchable and it prevents any Bd4+. Rooks will be traded when that bishop moves. I insist it's pretty drawish.
