  Kent Swearingen: Who but a computer would see that White has to play 30.Rf3, when after 30...cxd4 31.Qh7+ Ka6 32.Qxg8 Qxf3+ 33.Kg1 Qxf4 34.b4 Black apparently has nothing better than a draw?
Sep-13-17  Howard: Would that computer be rooting for Fedoseev in this match ?

I certainly am !

Sep-13-17  fisayo123: C'mon Fedoseev. Bounce back tomorrow!

Sorry, I don't understand. If white plays 30. Rf3, then why wouldn't black play 30...Nxf3? On the other hand, 30...cxd4 would be impossible because instead of 30. Bxd4 white plays 30. Rf3 in your proposed line, right?

Sep-13-17  beatgiant: <ChessHigherCat> It was obviously a typo for 31. Rf3. Let he whose kibitzes are without error cast the first stone.

Maybe it was obvious to you but since I'm the one who's always wrong about notation I thought I must be misinterpreting it. Do you think I would be likely to make snide remarks about somebody else's notation? I'll leave that up to you hot-shots, I'm a self-taught blitz player and hate notation, especially algebraic.

Okay, I figured it out with WinBoard:
30. Bxd4 Qc6+ 31. Rf3 cxd4 32. Qh7+ Ka6 33. Qxg8 Qxf3+ 34. Kg1 Qxf4 35. b4

Sep-13-17  Howard: Personally, I still miss descriptive notation---which is what Chess Life used exclusively up through mid-1978.
Sep-14-17  paladintanks: Ironically both players have wins with black pieces in d4.Nf6 sequence.

That's okay, I do it all the time. For me, the best way to avoid it is to play the combination on the free WinBoard Game Viewer and then just cut-and-paste the impeccable notation (Win-Board is the name of the X-Board program for Windows but if you have some other operating system you can download the appropriate version here: https://www.gnu.org/software/xboard/)
