Sep-17-05  Rama: After 17 ... c6, Silman applied the screws for forty two turns. He made good use of the black g-pawn as shelter for his King against the black heavy pieces.

Black could not avoid the tactics in the end. But does exchanging Q's on move 44 lead to a draw? After 44 Qd1 Qxd1, 45 Rxd1 Ke8, the black pieces can regroup and he can play on for many turns. (Unless I am missing something, like a way for white to get in Nf6.)

  IMlday: Actually Black was better in the late middlegame, perhaps even winning with the obvious 41..d5!. The blunder was 44..Qe7?? Time-trouble, the control was at 45. Once White's N/h5 gets to f5 White is much better. A real struggle!
Dec-15-10  misha1992: Yeah what a move to g7 and f5. Reminds me where Silman says take can't out your vocab! Good game!
