Kibitzer's Corner
May-27-05  paladin at large: Why does Spielmann play 17. Rfd1? After the exchange of rooks, Reti is very comfortable in the endgame with the bishop pair.
Dec-08-07  Rama: Black was going to invade d3 and then double on the file; he had to be opposed.

Looking at the position after 19. Rxd8 Bxd8, you can see that white wants his B at c3 and his Knight at e4. He actually achieves this ideal setup after 27. Bc3 g6. Too bad the pin prevents the immediate N-check.

But with 29. Nf6+ Kc6, 30. Nxd5 Kxd5, 31. Kd3 ..., white surely had a draw. Yes?
