|Feb-03-12|| ||rilkefan: I was rather surprised to see 14...b4. Checking with stockfish I see that the natural ...hxg6 leaves black better (-0.8 at a depth of 24). SF didn't like 14.fxg6 at all, thinking it dropped about a pawn, and didn't like 13.f5 at all either, thinking Qd2 was half a pawn better.|
It thinks black held some advantage (-0.6, depth of 24) after 18...Ndf6 instead of ...Nef6, I take it because in the game line the bishop doesn't get developed (e.g. to g4 and then e6 if O-O-O). The game line evaluates as almost a pawn better for white.
It appears to think that 27...Qc4 was just even. Ditto 28...Qc4. It thinks 29...a4 was a blunder, losing on the spot. Instead 29...Bf5 supporting both knights was even.

|Feb-03-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Cool game. GJ by Howell.
|Feb-03-12|| ||FSR: When Howell has R+N v. R+R, he manages to draw, D Howell vs Carlsen, 2009, but obviously this position was a little different. Cf. also V Pupols vs F Rhine, 1997.|
|Feb-03-12|| ||Penguincw: Great pun.|
|Feb-03-12|| ||kevin86: The advantage of two rooks is that they can set up mate possibilities,even without aid of other pieces. White's position is crushing.|
|Feb-03-12|| ||rapidcitychess: Good game, bad pun. >.<|
|Feb-03-12|| ||hedgeh0g: Prettywell.|
|Feb-03-12|| ||Siksika: Great game, great pun.|
|Feb-03-12|| ||SynthStatic: Now that is what I call entertainment.|
