Kibitzer's Corner
May-29-15  zydeco: Interesting game between two players who were at their best in this tournament.

With 33.h4 Qxh4 34.Qxe5 Lipnitsky gets a big advantage -- if the game simplifies, white just pushes his passed pawns. I'm surprised Tolush didn't play 33....Qe7 and if 34.Nc4 Bg7.

41.Nc4 might have been better.

Around move 40, it looks like Lipnitsky has pretty much beaten off Tolush's counterplay, and then Tolush uncorks a wild sacrifice with 45....Qxb1.

It must have been a sinking feeling for Liptnisky around move 48 to realize that he and a queen for a rook but no way to win -- even after taking all three of black's queenside pawns.
