Aug-10-15  saturn2: ...19 g5 looks strange. Even stranger is to me that white did not take the pawn with check.
Aug-10-15  Eusebius: Was 10...Bxf3 already the decisive mistake? Opening the g-file, under supervision of this terrible white bishop pair...

Aug-10-15  Eusebius: <saturn2> As you can see 20. Rxg5+ would have blocked out the white queen for a while. Followed by 21...Kh8, and later black rook on g8. At least for an attempt to clear the g-file.

  Penguincw: A couple of mate in 4s in the final position:

If 28...Qxf6, then 29.Nxf6 Nxf6 30.Qxh6+ Nh7 31.f6 Bxf6 32.Qxh7# 1-0.

If 28...Be3, then 29.Qxe3 Qxf6 30.Nxf6 Nxf6 31.Qxh6+ Nh7 32.Qg7# 1-0.

There's also a mate in 3 if 28...Nxf6 29.Qxh6+ Nh7 30.f6 Bxf6 31.Qxh7# 1-0

  HeMateMe: Pretty thorough chopping up here. I never worry about getting the double f pawns in this kind of position. The open g file often becomes a headache later, for black.

It turned out to be a migraine, in this case.

Aug-11-15  saturn2: Thanks for the youtube link.
With 10 ...BxN black wanted to create a weakness in blacks position. But it backfired with an open file and the pawn f3 getting strong. After f4 it chased away the bishop from e5 and the diagonal b2-h8 belonged to white.

From a general point the pawn moves 7..e5 11 ..d4 and 14...c5 dont seem to be good. They offend a chess law: 'Dont move a pawn twice before all your pieces are developed.'
