Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-07-06  lopium: The ending could probably had been played quicker.

  Honza Cervenka: 22.e4?? is hard to explain.
Aug-29-18  NBZ: <Honza Cervenka>: I actually thought it was an interesting exchange sacrifice. By move 31, I don't think White is worse, he has ample compensation for the exchange (and SF rates him as +0.65). Probably White erred by allowing the queens to be traded and going into the ending where the rook is much stronger than the bishop.
Aug-29-18  NBZ: <Honza Cervenka>: In retrospect, it appears 22. e4 was indeed quite bad, but Black misplayed the next few moves. In particular he ought to have played 25. ... Rfe8 when white must lose the e4 pawn or have a very precarious position with 26. f4. But Black messed up with 25. ... g6 and 26. ... h5 which made the exchange sac look okay by move 31.

  NM JRousselle: NBZ, one of the rules of thumb in deciding whether to exchange queens is to look at relative king safety. The player with the safer king (White in this game) often should not trade queens. The engine recommends 32 Qe1, avoiding the queen trade.

  Honza Cervenka: <NBZ> 22.e4 turns clearly superior position into objectively lost one. This move shuts way of retreat for Bf5, which is under threat to be trapped, and it also allows black Knight to leap on f4. After 22.Rc4 white is clearly better
