  MJCB: A very nice game.

  Phony Benoni: That really didn't look like it was going to work, but somehow it did. And perhaps Black's rooks get the blame.

It's seems like Black was doing everything right, especially with the beautiful doubled rooks on the d-file. But they never did anything, There was nothing to attack, nor do they use the file as a jumping-off point to the far reaches of the board.

Instead they defend, and seem to be duplicating each other's efforts instead of cooperating. Eventually they go their separate ways, and loose rooks drop off.

Very mysterious.

White avoids 38. PxR, twice.

  rodchuck: I would have thought that 23...Qd4 would have forced the exchange of queens and prevented any tactical moves by white.
Oct-28-16  LivBlockade: I submitted the same pun for J Tomczak vs J Duda, 2016, a nice attack against a king trapped in the center.
Oct-28-16  cunctatorg: A real, loveliest gem from a just sixteen years old Jan-Krzysztof Duda!!

  kevin86: Pawns capture black's both rooks.
Oct-28-16  Imran Iskandar: Highly satisfying game.
Oct-28-16  crwynn: 23...qd4 24.bc4 qxc3+ 25.kxc3 rxd1 26.rxd1 bxc4 27.kxc4 seems like a reason for black to avoid exchanging queens-he has been forced to give white a monster king, poised to strike at blacks weakened q-side.
Oct-28-16  schnarre: ...A combative game from both sides! I thought Black had the upper hand--I concur with Phony Benoni's analysis about the double rooks--but White pressed on to win.
