Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-05-18  Ulhumbrus: White has the bishop pair but his pawns are broken. On 20 Bxe7 Rxe7 21 f4 f6 White's e5 pawn is pinned
Premium Chessgames Member
  Mateo: This one looks rather good for Black. He threatens 20...Bxf6 21.exf6 Rd6.
Jun-05-18  Ulhumbrus: If White wants to play for a draw 20 e6 fxe6 21 Bxc6 bxc6 22 Bxe7 Rxe7 may reduce White's disadvantage

  An Englishman: Good Morning: Thank you for the second game. Both of the remaining games in this round look odd. White might lose a pawn here, but can play Bxc6 to make both players' pawn structures equally worthless.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Mateo: Massive exchange switching to a Rook ending. I expect another draw, although Back as a slight edge.
Jun-05-18  Ulhumbrus: 27...Ra6 attacks the a pawn
Premium Chessgames Member
  An Englishman: Good Morning: Clever tactics by both players. After 25...Re6, 26.Rb7,a6 protects the a-pawn. Black has whatever advantage might exist in the position.
Jun-05-18  BOSTER: Ra6 is playable, and white in defensive mode.
Jun-05-18  Ulhumbrus: 28...Ra6 29 a4 Ra5 gets ready for 30...Rh5. As the king is a piece in the ending, one question is when to advance the king. One example of an answer is, when the opposing rook can't make the player pay for advancing the king
Jun-05-18  BOSTER: But another plan to go after h2 pawn.
Premium Chessgames Member
  An Englishman: Good Morning: Another repetition opportunity--28...Rd6+; 29.Ke3,Re6+.
Jun-05-18  classF: <> Anand game please
