  ChemMac: 38. Ba3 loses too. 38....NdXf2 39.RXf2 NXf2 40.KXf2 Rd7+ 41.Kg1 QXg3 $2 Qf1 Rcc2

19. e3 is such an awful move that after 21...Ba6, white should give up the exchange with 22. d4. This keeps the knight out of d3 where it's worth more than a rook. After 22...Bxf1, 23. Bxf1 improves the bishop's scope. White has good play on the c-file and may be able to hold.

  mycroft2120: Just a beautiful domination game by Gris. Instructive centralization and use of outposts. I especially like how he made arrangements for b6 to be over-protected without losing the initiative.

  HeMateMe: Knights beat Bishops, here. White let his position get completely blocked.
