Mar-03-05  a30seclegend: A very well played game in my opinion especially to be only 12 years old. One thing i didnt quite catch probally a dumb question but why not Kxe6.

  tpstar: <a30seclegend> 21. e6+! Kxe6 22. Re1+ Kf7 (22 ... Kd7? 23. Nxe7 Bxe7 24. Rxe7+ Kd8 25. Rg7+) 23. Nxe7 Bxe7 24. Rxe7+ Kf8 25. Rxb7 wins a Pawn with the superior endgame, like 25 ... Rg7 26. Rxg7 Kxg7 27. Be7 winning another Pawn. Fine exchange sacrifice by Adams.

  wwall: Perhaps 25...gxh4 is better. If 26.Rxb7 Na3 27.Nb6 Rd8 28.Nd5 (theatening 29.Nc7 mate) 28...Rc8 29.Nb6 Rd8 draws.

Or 29...Rxc2+ and 30...Kf8.

Perhaps 30...Rxc2+ is better. After 31.Kf3 Rg6 32.Rf7+ Ke8 33.Nc7+ Rxc7 34.Rxc7 Rxe6 35.fxg5 hxg5 36.Rg7 g4+ 37.hxg4 fxg4+ 38.Rxg4 Kd7 may draw.

Or 33.e7+ Kf7 (33...Ke8?? 34.Rd8+ Kf7 35.e8=Q+ Kg7 36.Rd7 mate) 34.Rd8 Re6 35.Rf8+ Kg7 36.e8=Q Rxe8 37.Rxe8 Rxa2 38.Rd8.

After 36.Kg3, White threatens 37.e8=Q. If Black plays 36...Re6, then 37.f5 Ree2 38.f6+ Kg6 (38...Kf7 39.Rf7+ and 40.Nf4) 39.e8=Q+ Rxe8 40.Rxe8 Rxa2 41.Rg8+ Kf7 42.Rg7+ Ke6 43.Re7+ Kxd5 44.f7, and White wins.

Jul-29-06  Elroch: If 21. ...Kxe6 22. Re1+ Kf7 (22. ...Kd7 23. Nxe7 Bxe7 24.Rxe7+ Kd8 25. Rg7+ ) 23. Nxe7 Bxe7 24. Rxe7+ Kf8 Rxb7 looks convincing to me

  naresb: White was ahead in development of pieces. Black’s blunder for not taking restrictive measures like taking early action against advancing pawn n pieces, failure to employ right defensive measures allowed White to increase his activity and decrease Black’s activity.
