  bright1: I wonder why White didn't play 27. Rf2 with the idea of doubling rooks on the h-file. That looks really strong to me.
Jan-27-12  Archswindler: <bright1> I think 27. Rf2 lets black off the hook, as after 27... Kg7 black can meet Rfh2 with ...Rh8. If white then tries 28. f6+, black has ...Kg6, and if white moves the rook off the f-file, the f6 pawn hangs. Black can then just calmly play moves like ...h6 and ...Ra8-d8-d6-f6.

  iking: <bright1: I wonder why White didn't play 27. Rf2 with the idea of doubling rooks on the h-file. That looks really strong to me.> for Black the reply would be Kg7 then Rh8 .... white's doubling of rooks at the h file is not enough i suppose.

  Gilmoy: <22.a5!!> Still a pawn down, his attack fizzling (but he knew that), he finds a <quiet> move!

<4..cxd4 50.axb6> recovers the gambit pawn *boomp-chh*

<51.Kxe5 53.Rxg5+> is a worthy successor to Capa's Ripe Apples. Maybe this is a model for the gambit line: Black exposes Nf6, and <14..Bxh2+> is a deep trap(?) that exacerbates his shattered K-side pawns: White has game-long pressure vs h7.

  Wyatt Gwyon: Adams eats the French for lunch.
Feb-05-12  Everett: Seriously, I wouldn't play the French vs Adams. He is such a beast with it, with so few losses or even draws allowed by him.
