  SteinitzLives: Now white needs to take some risks to play for a win, black is caught up in development.

  SteinitzLives: Black can activate with Bb4 while his K hides behind the h7 pawn making whites attack take longert to get started. If black can activate his R's, counterplay then maybe equality, but game is double-edged, one mistake by black, and he is in big trouble.
Aug-29-11  mack: This is all tremendously exciting, I must say.

  SteinitzLives: Nf4 was a sick blunder. Now black simplifies and wins.
Aug-29-11  Strongest Force: Terrible!

  lost in space: yeaps, looks like this is not that easy for white.

36. Rg8+ Kxh7 37. Rxf8 Rxc2 and event though all rook-pawn endings are drawn this here is might be winnable for Black.

  lost in space: What is with 41. Rf7+ Kh(g)6 42. Rxd7 and later on Rd3. Pawns are the same, I guess white has winning chances (a5/b5) but I can not see that it is completely lost for White

  lost in space: Black is in deep trouble here. Only small chance I see is to play 46. Rb6 or 46. Ra6

  twinlark: She missed 28. Rxg7! winning instantly.
Aug-29-11  JohnBoy: <twin: She missed 28. Rxg7! winning instantly.>

Give some analysis please. I don't see the immediate win. After 28...Bxg7 do you propose 29.Qh6 or Bxg7+ or Qg5? I see black posting the knight at f5 (protecting against a rook lift Rd1-d4-h4) and white unable to kick it (g pawn is pinned. White does not have time for Rd1-d3 as black just takes the c3 knight.

I'd like to see you back up your statement.

Aug-29-11  redcircle: Lucky escape for Movsesian.The position out of the opening and after the exchange of the light-squared bishops is very interesting and actually slightly better for White.Personally i have lost as Black hundreds of times this position.The light squared bishop is valuable for Black in order to create counterplay in the long diagonal against the White and prevent White to create a mating attack.I believe that if Movsesian had her position he would have won.Anyway Hou is a great player(i do not underestimate her)and she would certainly have her chances to seriously fight against strong players in the future
Aug-29-11  redcircle: <create counterplay in the long diagonal against the White king> i wanted to say

  lost in space: 28. Rxg7 is wining, but also 27. Qf4 is very good for White. I think this position is close to be called a win for white.

  twinlark: <Johnboy> Sorry, had to go to bed and didn't see your query till I got up this morning (I'm in Australia), but I see <lost in space> stepped into the breach.
Sep-01-11  sharp position: lost in space- how would u face, if black would have played 29...ng6 instead of ....nf5?

  Honza Cervenka: <sharp position: lost in space- how would u face, if black would have played 29...ng6 instead of ....nf5?> If 28.Rxg7 Bxg7 29.Qg5 Ng6, then simply 30.Qh6 and the game is over.
