Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-22-11  Gogia: 89.f5 and it is over
Jan-22-11  Zkid: Better yet 89. f7 Ke7 90. Kg7 and white promotes.
Jan-22-11  swr: Beautiful game!
Jan-22-11  eykca: A very nice sacrifice that doesn't seem to pay immediate dividends but rather a slow sequence of pawns here and exchange advantages there. Not a sac I could ever make work (i'm a noob) but certainly fun to watch.

  kevin86: 89 f7 ♔e7 90 ♔g7 and queens as the white bishop and black king keep the black bishop off the queening square.
Jan-22-11  scormus: Nice game! Great credit to both players and a well earned win for W. If I'd had W's position at move 35 I'd have been rather worried about ... Qxh2+
Jan-22-11  WhiteRook48: 88 Rxd6+ is a nice simplification
Jan-22-11  David2009: Very enjoyable and enterprising play by both sides. I have set the position with White to play move 30

up on Crafty End Game Trainer to see how Black defends. Link:

After 30 Qc2 the EGT prefers Qc8 to Qf7 but after 31 Nd6 the EGT follows the game continuation 31...cxd6 32.Bxd6+ Bc7 33.Bxf8 Qxf8 34.Be4 Qf4 35.Qb5 Qxh2+ 36.Kf1 Qh3+ 37.Ke2 Qe6 until move 38.Qxg5

(Black to play) when it varies with 38...Ne5 instead of 38...Qe8. White has at least a draw starting 39.Qxh5 Nxf3 40.Qxf3 Bxe4 41.Qe3 Bb6 42.Rd4 Bxd4 43.Qxd4 etc but it will be very hard to force a win unless Black voluntarily exchanges Queens.

Jan-22-11  ekw: How witty.

Actually how my name relates to my game, is not *quantity*, nor *velocity*, but ... **quality**.

Jan-22-11  cwcarlson: Ekw didn't win slow when he played me. He always won very quickly!
Jan-23-11  Gogia: sure 89. f7 is better
Jan-24-11  ekw: I confess, looking now, I can't figure out why I didn't just play 20.Nxe5.

Is 20...h5 such a big deal?

Sep-20-12  Abdel Irada: <ekw: How witty.>

Ekwitty, in fact. :-D
