Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-14-05  lopium: Why 24.Rfe1 and not Bxd5?
Dec-14-05  Averageguy: <lopium> The Rd5 isn't running away so white justs builds his position before taking it.
Dec-14-05  lopium: If it moves I don't think black is lost, well maybe yes. But I can't see the winning line, to my eyes it seems far away but probably here.
Dec-15-05  Averageguy: <lopium> The rook is pinned to the Qf7.
Dec-15-05  lopium: Rd7 and I see one pawn dead, not 2 as the rook's catch. I'm a very poor player, hahaz, don't lose your time with me if you don't want. But I promise, I'm as blind as I'm saying at chess.
Dec-15-05  Averageguy: <lopium> 24...Rd7 is not a legal move as there is a bishop on d6
Dec-15-05  panigma: I think he means on move 23
Dec-15-05  Averageguy: <panigma> <lopium> 23...Rd7 24.Bg4.
Dec-15-05  lopium: Bg4, f5 and black's gonna lose this pawn maybe with the white queen. Ain't it true? hahaz.
Dec-16-05  Averageguy: 23...Rd7 24.Bg4 f5 25.Bxf5 Qxf5 26.Qxg8. Black can sacrifice the Rg8 on g2 to cut his losses.
Dec-16-05  lopium: And do you think it might be good for him to sacrifice his rook on g2? At least better than to be taken by the Qxg8.
Dec-16-05  Averageguy: <And do you think it might be good for him to sacrifice his rook on g2?> It's the best that he can do.
