Aug-03-04  fred lennox: 7...cxd4 forces the c file to open. This game is an example that the stonewall is capable of queenside attack and not just kingside.

  keypusher: A remarkable game. At move 15, you wouldn't expect White's QB, buried behind pawns at a3, b4, d4, e3 and f4, to have much of a future. But after 17...Bxe5(?) 18. de the bishop takes up a strong position at d4. Later, White sacrifices a pawn to reach an ending (31. e6 Rxe6 32. Qc7) where Black is helpless against White's strong bishop and rook on the seventh. Quite a performance by Maroczy!
Jun-06-07  pedroskaman: I am curious. Why not simply 29. e6 attacking the Q at d7 and the mating square g7 (Qxg7) at the same time?
Jun-06-07  unferth: <pedroskaman> looks like white missed a clear win--I don't see a defense

  keypusher: <pedroskaman> 29. e6 fxe6 meets both threats.
Jun-07-07  unferth: <keypusher> well, there's always that, I suppose ...
