|Oct-27-16|| ||Phony Benoni: Not particularly memorable. White spends the first half of the game trying to threaten mate, but black is up to the defensive task.|
I don't know if 28.Ke2 is a blunder or an attempt at a cunning trap. Probably both. Black finds the combination to win two pieces for a rook, but this seems to go to her head.
After 31...Ne6 and 32..Nc5, can White make any progress? Of course Black probably can't either, but that's the nature of these B=N vs. R endgames; they end up drawn more often than not.
Instad, Black tries to press the advantage, snaffles a couple of pawns, then finds to her dismay that her pieces can no longer get there from here.
Of course, this is no doubt deeper than my superficial evaluation would indicate. But I don't see any reason to remember this game.
|Oct-27-16|| ||AlicesKnight: Tend to agree with <Phony Benoni> generally; there is a bit of similarity with the recent Chandler-Wolf game after 30.... ab4 in the broken and isolated pawns which White can deal with easily, creating space for his QRP, while here Black's pieces are distracted. If 30....Ne6; 31.bxa5 Nc5 and the Black b-pawn is covered while White's a-pawn still faces a red light.|

|Oct-27-16|| ||7he5haman: I wonder if Black could hold with 31...Ne6 32.Rxb4 Nd8|
|Oct-27-16|| ||7he5haman: (scratch that, I see others have already asked the same / similar question!)|
|Oct-27-16|| ||clement41: I like 8 d3 instead of the main move 8 Ne2 because it is very combative and does some psychological resistance, showing white is not impressed by black's threats, in the same vein as 7 Qf3. And this is backed by [easy] calculation: if 8...dc 9 Bxh6 (threatening Qxf7#) 0-0 10 Bxg7 Kxg7 (...cb? Bxb2 a long, backward diagonal move ) 11 bc and I like white's position.|
|Oct-27-16|| ||Ilkka Salonen: I have been using this pun of my facebook activities under the profile name Vicky Blowhart. It was obvious for year's ago americans are spying of facebook and stuff, so I thought why not use that to intimidate them legally.|
|Oct-27-16|| ||kevin86: White is down material but this will win!!|
|Oct-27-16|| ||7he5haman: <clement41> sure but after 8.d3 Black can just pay 8...0-0 and the line transposes back to the game continuation after 9.Ne2.|
