  Moose Malloy: Fantastic squeeze by Adams. He won the "unwinnable".

  sevenseaman: Getting the very last drop of juice out of it; if you can then why not?

Greed to grab a P (19...Rxc5) cost Polzin the exchange a few moves later. For Adams, a good tactician too, the decision to simplify & grind out a win must have been made there.

Apr-14-12  JohnBoy: Are either of the 13...Nxd4 playable?

  whiteshark: Didn't Adams win against Hydra in the same way?
Apr-14-12  hugogomes: 13...Nfxd4 is not possible, because 14.Na4 wins a piece. Ncxd4 is possible, but leads to a small positional disadvantage after 14.Nxd5. trading the knights first with 14.Nxd4 doesnt work because 14... Qxd4!

  whiteshark: The 'tricky' <25.Be3> was worth considering.
Apr-14-12  Ratt Boy: Whoo boy. I couldn't figure out why 13...Ncxd4 wasn't possible. I was thinking 14.Nxd5, Nxe2+ would win a piece for Black.

Haha...I guess it wouldn't hurt for me to look at the position to see where White's King is.

Apr-14-12  rudiment: White's 47. f3, enabling both the removal of the N defender and the rook advance, is a gem of a move.
Apr-14-12  rudiment: What if 53... Ke8 instead?
Apr-14-12  fokers13: Maybe g5 threatening Rh4 and Rh8#?

  kevin86: Funny how black has the passed pawns,but it is white who wins the game! White's exchange advantage wins later.
Apr-14-12  JohnBoy: Thanks, <hugo> - like <Ratt> said - <I guess it wouldn't hurt for me to look at the position to see where White's King is.> Needless to say, the white monarch is not at g1.

The game concluded 54.Rxf3 1-0 but did Black resign too early?

Try to win the ending against Crafty End Game Trainer (interactive link http://www.chessvideos.tv/endgame-t...): not easy!
