Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-17-12  shivasuri4: 22.b5 can't be played as 22...Rxa6 wins two pieces for the rook.

White resigns in the final position as her either her dark squared bishop runs out of squares or the light squared pinned bishop is put under further pressure.

40. Qd2 loses to 40...Qb6+, whereas 40.g3 is met with 40...Qd4+ 41.Kh1 e5 42.Bd2 Rb2, winning the bishop.

Sep-17-12  shivasuri4: As an addendum to my above post, 40. Bg3 appears to be the best move for white, losing just the g5 pawn. Then again, there's no chance of a recovery in this line either, after 41. Bf2 Nxf2.
