Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-26-09  Sem: I think the Bishops will finish the job.
Mar-22-10  birthtimes: Perhaps Ftacnik was familiar with the following game, which served as a mighty backdrop to the Fischer-Taimanov clash in 1971...

Geller vs Minic, 1968

Jan-05-12  Benjamin1981: Was it really correct to resign? 32...Rxg8
33 Bd4+ Rg7 34 Bxg7 Kxg7 loses to
35 Qc7 Kf6 36 Qxf4 but what if 34... Kh7?
35. Be4+ Kg8 and whites attack is gone and black threatens Qd1#.

Now A) 36 hxg3 Qd1+ 37 Kf2 Qd2+ 38 Kf3 Qe3+ 39 Kg4 Qxg3 40 Kf5 Qxg7. I cant see how this is obviously won for white.

B) 36 Qe6+ Kxg7 just doesnt seem to be winning for white

C) 36 Bd5+ Kh/ 37 Qxh6+ Qxh6 38 Bxh6 Kxh6 doesnt look like a simple win to me. Or does the c-pawn win?

D) Best looking is 36 Qd6 Re8 37 hxg3 kxg7 38 Bf3 but is it an immediate loss?

Feel free to inform the patzer.
