mel gibson: So this one ends in a draw! I thought 36 Q-g3. Stockfish 9 doesn't agree with the text move - it says: 36. Be3 (36. Be3 (♗c1-e3 ♗d7-f5 ♗e3xb6 ♗f5-g6 ♖g1-g3 ♘a6-b8 ♘c2-e3 ♖a8-a3 ♗b3-d1 ♕c8-b7 ♗b6-d8 ...

mel gibson: I saw the solution move but then I thought no - the Queen can't be lost. Stockfish 9 agrees only with the first move but Black doesn't take the white Queen. 21.Rxb7 (21. Rxb7 (♖a7xb7 ♕f8-d8 ♖b7-a7 ♘d7-f6 ♖a7xa8 ♕d8xa8 ♕a1-b2 ...

mel gibson: <Oct-13-18 Premium Chessgames Member Breunor: I didn't say Stockfish should deny the move, and I didn't say that above. I said I didn't understand why it is the best move and Stockfish doesn't necessarily help a player understand why a move is best.> With Stockfish you ...

mel gibson: White's move 17. Rfe1 was a blunder. It's obvious that the f2 pawn could not be left defenseless. Stockfish 9 says the correct move was 17. Bxc6 (17. Bxc6 (♗b5xc6 ♗d7xc6 ♖e3-e2 g7-g5 d3-d4 ♕h6-h4 d4-d5 ♗c6-d7 c3-c4 ♗d7-f5 c4-c5 b7-b6 ...

mel gibson: <Sep-20-18 dumbgai: <mel gibson: What an amazing game. The Black Queen got too greedy taking all those pawns - letting the b file open up for White's Rook was the killer.> Not really. As others have pointed out, black was winning until 15...Be6.> Still - many a game
