  An Englishman: Good Afternoon: If sound, 31...White to Play has a bright future as a weekend puzzle. "Navara" Dull Moment in This Game!
Jul-28-17  Valiantangel: Deep calculation ...probably he saw this at move 30. 15...b5 was better...and Nb8 was the tilting point...B never got back into the game

  ChessHigherCat: What do you guys think of this crazy combination?:

28. d6 Ba4 29. Nxf7+ Kg7 30. dxc7 Bxb3 31. Rxd8 Rxd8 32. cxd8=Q Qxf7 33. Qd4+ Kh7 34. Qb4 Bxa2 35. Re7

  beatgiant: <ChessHigherCat> On 28. d6, Black probably interposes <28...Bxg5> and I'm not seeing White's knockout punch. For example 28. d6 Bxg5 29. dxc7 Rxd1 30. Rxd1 Bxh4 31. Qxb6 Bc6.

What's your suggestion on 28. d6 Bxg5?

  ChessHigherCat: <beatgiant> It's true that taking the N puts a damper on things but 28. d6 Bxg5 29. dxc7 still looks pretty wild because now the N on b6 and the B on g5 and R on d8 are all hanging. Black can play Rxd1, of course, but 30. Rxd1 and it's still a crazy position. I only a spent a few minutes looking at what could be done about the threat of 28. d6 Ba4 and I no doubt didn't find the best possible line but you have to admit it's an interesting position.
