|Jan-14-17|| ||Jack Kerouac: What to do with the knight?|
|Jan-14-17|| ||Penguincw: These 2 have never met before.
It's interesting how the So-Carlsen game is between the 2 highest rated players in the group, while this game is between the 2 lowest rated players.
The only other game remaining in Group A is Andreikin-Wei Yi, but it's currently an equal king and 6 pawn ending, almost certainly a draw. Here, Adhiban can try for a win.
|Jan-14-17|| ||Jack Kerouac: ..D8 is looking possible.|
|Jan-14-17|| ||Jack Kerouac: Oh yeah.|
|Jan-14-17|| ||Penguincw: Andreikin-Wei Yi have shaken hands after 55 moves. Last remaining game in the Masters Group, is this one (still one game remaining in the challengers, Tari-Hansen).|
|Jan-14-17|| ||Jack Kerouac: N back to E6.|
|Jan-14-17|| ||Jack Kerouac: Welcome to the Tata Steel tournament with your commentators Zappa and a penguin not in bondage. Boing.|
|Jan-14-17|| ||tamar: Trick here. if 48...Kxd6 49 Nb4+ forces the win of the knight|
|Jan-14-17|| ||tamar: or the win of the kside pawns, which is just as bad|
|Jan-14-17|| ||not not: how about, abandon d6 pawn and eat f7 pawn, and cut black king off (white took sitting on f file) ?|
|Jan-14-17|| ||not not: rook b7 check and black is busted?|
|Jan-14-17|| ||Jack Kerouac: Rook to King side..|
|Jan-14-17|| ||Jack Kerouac: Seems there is a win here for white but may settle for a draw against an opponent who makes a living by drawing.|
|Jan-14-17|| ||not not: how about rook b6 pining knight, then take knight with this rook, followed by knight fork to take g6 pawn? I mean, give up rook for black knight and g pawn?|
seems good fighting chance to me
|Jan-14-17|| ||sakredkow: That pawn on d6 - from move 14 to move 56! Ay, what a pain. Great patience by Loek.|
