Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-17-10  Octal: What about 21 ... Rfd8?
Jun-17-10  Octal: Ehh, it still seems to give black problems after 22 Rxc4. I forgot about the obvious problems of 22 ... c5 23 a3 (with or without White playing Rxd8+ or Black playing ... Rxd1+).

Perhaps not playing in months really has taken a toll.

Jun-17-10  patzer2: Panno's 18. f5! is an instructive move. It allows White to create lots of isolated Black pawns as targets in the ensuing endgame, which gives him excellent winning chances.
Jun-17-10  kevin86: Strange ending-white is a pawn down-and wins!!
Jun-17-10  patzer2: It's a purely defensive endgame position, but Black might have decent drawing chances after 30...hxg4 31. hxg4 c5.
Jun-17-10  lzromeu: Blacks was losted since 41kb5.
The pawn massacre goes to nothing.
