Jul-29-04  Knight13: Good game.
Sep-03-04  wall: 25...Ne7 doesn't look good. Perhaps Black should play 25...h6 instead. After 27.Nd6, threatening the rook, 27...Rg7 fails to 28.Nxb7 Qxb7 29.Rxe6. In the game, 30.Qxe6 was played. Interesting is 30.Qxb7 Qxb7 31.Nxd8 and 32.Nxe6, which looks strong. Faster may have been 46.Rb1 (instead of 46 Be5), 46...Rb8 47.Be5.
Feb-12-08  notyetagm: White to play: 46 ?

46 ♗c3-e5! is an elegantly simple example of exploiting an <OVERWORKED> piece, the Black e8-rook.

click for larger view

The Black e8-rook is <OVERWORKED> as it is trying to <DEFEND> two squares simultaneously: preventing the White b7-pawn from promoting on the b8-square and keeping the White c3-bishop from gaining control of the b8-promotion square from e5.

Feb-12-08  EdwardChisam: But the simple minded 46. Rb1 Rb8 47. Be5 wins easily as well.

Yes, but I cannot put that line in my Game Collection: Overworked, can I? :-)

Plus 46 ♗c3-e5! is pretty.

Jan-30-12  Zugzwangovich: What was the point of 38.g4?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eisenheim: <Zugzwangovich> 38 g4 creates tempo for white and allows the iniative to progress. if gxh pawn then the black horse enters the fray. if passive then hxg pawn and opens up attacking lines for black.
