Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-15-05  Knight13: 22... Qxf2?? is a blunder. Black overlooked the powerful move 23. Ne4!.

After 31. Re4 Black resigns because he loses pawns. The continuation might be 31... Qh6 32. Qc7 Ra8 33. Qxc5 and White has a powerful passed d pawn. White is also a pawn up, so winning percentage is high.

My annotations above might be wrong and stupid, but it'll be my learning experience, which I can look at in the feature.

Jun-15-05  Shams: <Knight13> we'll be stupid together, then, since I quite agree with your analysis. I would only insert 32...Rf8 guarding the f-pawn instead of 32...Ra8. Also you forgot to mention that white is an exchange up too. Easy win. Hard to believe that black missed 23.Ne4, a strong move but the most obvious idea on the board for white.

Also hard to believe that black's first and last names are "Thiruchelvam".

I also think black missed a one-move chance to play 14...Bg6.

  tpstar: 31 ... Qh6 32. Rxf7! Kxf7 33. Qe7+ Kg8 34. Qxd8+ Kg7/Kf7 (34 ... Qf8? 35. Re8) 35. Re7+ is decisive.

If 32 ... Nf5 then simplest is 33. Rxf5! gxf5 34. Qxf5 with an easy win = 34 ... Rf8 35. Rg4+ Kh8 36. Qe5+ Rf6 37. Rg5! & 38. Rf5 wins.

Jun-15-05  Knight13: Black's name is Thirumurugan Thiruchelvam. It's a mistake <> made. But it dosen't matter.
Jan-13-09  WhiteRook48: lesson: why would you play 4...Nf6 when it just causes you doubled pawns?
