Feb-04-07  morphyvsfischer: That passed pawn sure did hurt black. 14...Rac8 is necessary.

16...exd5 17 Nxf6+ Bxf6 18 Bxf6 gxf5 19 cxd5 Bxd5? Bxd5 Qxd5 21 Re8+! Kg7 22 Qxd5 Rxd5 23 Rxa8 wins.

19...g6 is correct. (19...h6? 20 Be5!! traps the queen!)

30...h5 31 Qe7 followed by g4 and h5 wins.

Yes, a textbook example of winning with a <CENTRAL PASSED PAWN> in the middlegame.

23 d6-d7!
