  manselton: 11.Rfxd8 This position features in Shereshevsky's "Endgame Strategy" in the chapter on fighting for the initiative.

We have a queenless middlegame which sooner or later will become an endgame. <If Black had one tempo to play ...h6 it would be even. That one tempo allows White to rapidly develop an initiative.> With Queens off who has the initiative assumes greater importance and it is more difficult to wrest it from your opponent.

<Here 17.Bxe7 Nxe7 18.Bxb7 Rb8 19.Bf3 Rxb2 20.Na4 might be stronger. White has a small but distinct positional advantage> e.g. 20...Rb4 21.Nc5 Rd6 22.Rab1 Rdb6 23.Rxb4 Rxb4 24.Rc1 Rb2 25.a3 Ra2 26.Nb7 c6 27.Nd8

  manselton: 28...a6 <White has provoked a weakening of the Q-side. The exchange of Rooks has further increased White's advantage.>

Here 32.Nd5 immediately or 32.Ba3 were also good moves. Black was in time trouble in a difficult position.

Instead 33...b5 is no better 34.Ba3 when Nf6+, Nc7 and Bb2 are all strong threats. Black must loses either a6 or e5. For example a) 34...Ne6 35.Nf6+ Kg7 36.Nd7

Or b) 34...Ndb7 35.Nf6+ Kg7 36.Ne8+ Kg8 37.Bb2 Nd8 38.Bg2 Nd7 39.Nc7
