Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-01-04  Dick Brain: This does not appear to be a correct resignation. Andersson could have tried 35. Nc3 Qxc3 36. d6. Maybe there is a win in there for Black but you gotta make him prove it in this case.
Feb-01-04  TrueFiendish: How about 35.Nc3 Qxc3 36.d6 Qc1.
Feb-02-04  Dick Brain: Then continue right on ahead with 37. d7 ... does White have a clear win then?

  tamar: <Dick Brain TrueFiendish> The d pawn motors to d8 if you play 36...♕c1. Black is still winning, but allowing white two queens seems messy. To me 36...♕e5 looks like a clear win. The threat Qh5+ is hard to avoid, 37. ♕d7 ♖e8 (threat ♕e4+) 38 ♕c6 ♕h5+ with a ♔ hunt.
Feb-02-04  TrueFiendish: 36...Qc1 37.d7 Qf1+ 38.Ke4 Qxe2 39.d8=Q Qxc4+ 40.Kf3 Rxd8 41.Qxd8+ Kg7

  tamar: If you continue with that line, <TF> there is still some proving to do after 42. Qe7+ Qf7 43. Qxc5 As long as the a pawn is on the board, white has hope.
Feb-02-04  Dick Brain: <TrueFiendish> after 39 ... Qxc4+ White plays 40 Ke5! trying to set up a perpetual-checking net. If then 40. Rxd8 Qxd8+ is perpetual check.
Feb-02-04  TrueFiendish: Hmm...maybe you're right; I missed that black couldn't hide on h6. How about we go back. (It's just that I have my doubts about 36...Qe5)

35...Qxc3 36.d6 Qxc4 37.d7 Qd5+. Now that oughta do it.

Feb-02-04  TrueFiendish: My last was directed at tamar, by the way. DB beat me to the punch!
Feb-02-04  Dick Brain: <tamar>Yep that looks decisive. Still, 35. Nc3 cannot possibly be worse than resigning.
Feb-02-04  Dick Brain: <TrueFiendish>I think your 36..Qxc4 is much better than 36.. Qc1. It should win, but White would not play 36 d7 in that case since it leads to mate. Rather he would play 36 Qc6. But that point the perpetual check threat is gone and White's passer has less of a threat.
Feb-02-04  TrueFiendish: He probably should have tried it to confuse his opponent, though these guys don't get confused like I do!
Feb-02-04  Dick Brain: <TrueFiendish>Continued: and as a matter of fact, after 36 Qc6 Black would have time for your move 36...Qc1 since the pawn now gets stalled at d7.

  tamar: <DB> An amazing postion. Well done. 40 Ke5 double exclam. Draw. Walking the King away from the pawns never entered my mind. Just for those who want to follow, this was the analysis from the final position: 35.♘c3 ♕xc3 36.d6 ♕c1 37.d7 ♕f1+ 38.♔e4 ♕xe2 39.d8=♕ ♕xc4+ 40 ♔e5!!
Feb-03-04  TrueFiendish: But 35.Nc3 Qxc3 36.d6 Qxc4 37.d7 Qd5+ mates.
