Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-26-12  iamdeafzed: Looks like ol' Super Nezh was threatening Ra2+, followed by Qh2/Qh1 in the final position. Qf1 (breaking the pin on the rook) parries that threat, but then black can play dxc5, being two pawns up and with better-looking pieces. That, from what I can tell, seems to be why white resigned.


Mar-26-12  ughaibu: Before playing dc5, black would exchange off all the pieces. You wouldn't want to lose the rook, would you?
Mar-26-12  shivasuri4: If white plays Qf1, black plays Qxf3+, Qxf3 Rxf3, Kxf3 dxc5, and the passed a pawn decides the game.
Mar-26-12  shivasuri4: Oh <ughaibu>, we posted at nearly the same time. Appreciate your brevity.

Well obviously black would have no reason to hang pieces. My point was just that black would EVENTUALLY end up with 2 extra pawns and better piece activity (which he could do with as he pleased) and that looked like it was enough to decide things in his favor. I can understand your confusion though, given that I was too lazy/not clever enough to provide a specific variation(s).

Case in point: I hadn't really considered black just liquidating down to a won king and pawn end game, but yeah, that would definitely win, too. In a sort of anti-Super Nezh style...
