Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-26-10  Everett: The power of the two bishops make themselves felt here. The Q+B battery on the a1-h8 diagonal drives black to distraction. Once 15.Rg4 showed up on the board, the second player must have realized something was not right.

I do not understand black's 22..Kh7. After this, white rolls his center pawn's forward to open diagonals for his bishops.

Black's last practical chance was 29..Qxg5 30.Rxg5 hxg5 when white would have to work harder for the win.

One finish could be 33..Rxb2 34.Rxg6+ Ng7 35.Re8+ with mate next move.

Mar-11-11  nateresi: cant see a board at all! just kibitz.. this is awful downloaded java.. but get nothing:-)
Mar-12-11  sevenseaman: Brilliant! Is it the norm for Mihai Suba. This is the second game from him and he is like an unstoppable force, with weapons to spare.

  FSR: <Everett> I think that Black played 22...Kh7 to protect the knight so that (a) if White was kind enough not to play 23.e5, Black could hold back the tide with 23...f6 and (b) if White played e5-e6, Black could play fxe6 without hanging the knight.
