Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-18-05  lopium: Hard game to understand. Very hard.
Oh well, impossible.
Nov-18-05  aw1988: Have you actually tried investigating the moves instead of just 'impossible'? Not to be harsh, but a little work ethic pays off.
Nov-18-05  lopium: Yes I did. Why black chose to lose a pawn with g6? Why 30.Rg5, to let the lose of the white bishop ocure? Why not 34.NdxNe? Why such a last move for white?
Nov-18-05  aw1988: That's a fair point, I don't think g6 was really necessary.

If Rg5 Kxh6?? Rxf5

I'm not sure about Nxe3, I think Black still has good chances.

Qd7 was to fork the two rooks, and attack f7. In fact, maybe a little early for resignation.

Nov-18-05  lopium: Thanksxz aw1988. But I said why 30.Rg5, not to take the bishop next move, but look, black lost his bishop for this move, few moves later, so why it was played?! Hmm yes, it was very early to resign here I think.
Jul-18-10  goodevans: <lopium: ... Why black chose to lose a pawn with g6?> <aw1988: That's a fair point, I don't think g6 was really necessary.>

Is there any better way to stop <Nxf6+ / Qh7#>?

<... Why 30.Rg5, to let the lose of the white bishop ocure?>

I think <30 Bg5> drops the N to <30 ... Rd6>, but it's complicated so I'm not 100% certain.

<... Why not 34.NdxNe?>

After <34 Nxe3 Bxe3> the threat of <35 ... Bxf4+> is pretty terminal.

Aug-04-11  DrMAL: Unrelated to the opening but fun to see, white played 28.f4 instead of 28.Rf3 (mandatory) and Kamsky found the best way to clobber him for it (via 28...Bh8). 29.Nxd5 lost faster.
