Black is in a tight spot.

  ChessHigherCat: I agree with SF on Nf6+ but I don't understand why the bishop sacrifice is necessary here: 34.Nf6+ Kd8 35.Rc6 Bxd4+ 36.Kxd4

  An Englishman: Good Morning: <ChessHigherCat>, the SF recommendation buys a little time to slow down the b-pawn and simultaneously advance the h-pawn. In the game continuation, Black's position looks horrible barring some tactical miracle.

  offramp: Black can queen but he is going to be checkmated. Fickle Clarissa!
Apr-01-18  Ulhumbrus: After 30...Bb6 White's b pawn becomes a stronger weapon than Black's h pawn. Following the manoeuvre 31 Ne4-c5 and the capture 32 Nxd7 it is not a knight that attacks Black's blockading bishop on b6 but White's rook from c6. This suggests that it is an error for Black to allow the capture of his b7 pawn by 30 Nxb7.

Surely you mean Ca´ssa?

Yet another Freudian slip proving that <Offramp> is really Hannibal the Cannibal

  HeMateMe: nice planning by white, giving up the g pawn in order to gain a tempo on the queenside.
Apr-01-18  varishnakov: Clarissa explains it all.

Har ha! You weren't going to catch <me> using the word Caissa like Ulhumbrus did earlier.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <offramp>--I missed the earlier post by <Ulhumbrus>. All is forgiven. Remember, though, that whatever Ca´ssa wants, Ca´ssa gets.

  offramp: N Vitiugov vs G Meier, 2018 (kibitz #6)
<offramp: Karlsruhe is exactly on the 49th line of latitude, and it is therefore <<on the same latitude as most of the American-Canadian border>. That could have an impact on the results from today's tournament>.>

Once again, Old Offramp's Prophecies were proved right.

So was mine. I predicted that Vitiugov would prove to be the Hot Dog.

I couldn't have been wrong, though, since like all good Delphic oracles it was ambiguous: he could have been chewed up like a hot dog.

  Richard Taylor: The most significant factor here is, as <offramp> points out, the 49th latitude. It was a very 49th latitudinal game...

  Domdaniel: The Crying of Lat 49 ...?
Apr-02-18  CountryGirl: Vitiugov is a real expert on the French....although usually with the black pieces.
