Mar-08-05  siu02jm: this game has been centered on the key square d5.. i am amazed how white is able to use the c4 pawn to hold onto it.. eventually white ♘ is placed on d5.. to the detrement of black's empire..?

this game clearly demostrate what capablanca said about the importance dominating the center.. very instructive indeed..

Mar-08-05  siu02jm: i still do not comprehend.. 12.g6; why such a passive move? why not maybe ♖b8.?

also black should not have allowed white to play 20.e4 .. infact 19.. d5 looks like a strong move for black with a passed pawn and all..

can someone with a chess program do an analysis after this.. thanks in advance..

  Mateo: <siu02jm: i still do not comprehend.. 12.g6; why such a passive move? why not maybe b8.?> If 12... Rb8, 13. Nf5 dc 14. Bb7 Rb7 15. Nd5! with good attacking prospects. So 12... g6 is good.

<siu02jm: black should not have allowed white to play 20.e4 .. infact 19.. d5 looks like a strong move for black with a passed pawn and all.> If 19... d5 20. cd Qd5 21. Qa6. Black may have compensations but Browne did not want to risk it.

  Mateo: 28... Ba5? was a strange move, and it is difficult to see why Andersson did not take the d6 pawn with 29. Qd6, because it seems that Black has nothing.

34... Qf7? loses, as it allowed Andersson to reach a won endgame. Better seems 34... g5!? (with the idea Qh5 without allowing Nd5-f4).

Jun-21-07  BaranDuin: 28. ... Ba5 29. Qxd6 Qxd6 30. Rxd6 Be1! and now for example 31.Rb2 Bxf2+ 32. Rxf2 33. Rfxe3

<siu02jm>
You are correct. Andersson was prepared to give away his dark-squared bishop on the long diagonal to exchange the Black knight that is attacking d5, knowing that the White knight is impregnable on d5.

Oct-03-21  FryskHynder: <Mateo: 31.Ng4 is a winning improvement for white> I think after 31 ... Ref8 white is nowhere near in a winning position at all. Only one pawn ahead which he will lose soon.
Oct-03-21  DouglasGomes: After 28...Ba5 29.Qxd6 Qxd6 30.Rxd6 Be1 31.Ng4 Ref8 Rb7 Bxf2+ 33. Kg2 (Nh6+ mating) Be3 (covering h6) 34. Rdd7 (Rg7+ mating) Black is losing material
