Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-22-07  Karpova: Kmoch:
21...Be8! (21...Bxa4? 22.f4 Bb2 23.Rxb2 Rxb2 24.Bxa4 the problem is the weakness of black's backrank). Sure, now after 22.Ne2 Black can take on a4 since his Bishop can take on d1 and then e2).

According to Kmoch 32...Bc6 was a mistake due to 33.Rxa5 and if the rook takes back then 34.Rd8+ and perpetual. Instead 32....Bc4! keeps the winning advantage as it enables black to play Rf1+.

Kmoch says that Black may keep an advantage after 32...Bc6 33.Rxa5 Re8 and it's hard to tell: Black still has an extra pawn which happens to be a free pawn also. The rooks are still there so the bishops of opposite colour are not the only decisive factors. After 34...Bd5 and 35...Kh7 and 36...Kg6 black's position looks good (those moves can hardly be prevented by white). So I would 32...Bc6 call a slight error and give him a "?!"

Jul-13-16  TheBish: This would make a good POTD, maybe for a Wednesday, with Black to play on move 34. Nice clearance move, 34...Rf1+!.

  plang: White's setup with 7 Be3 and 8 Nd2 allowed Black an effortless equality. After 11..Be5! Black was better. Concluding tactics were nifty.
