Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-18-11  Everett: 7.e4 seems counter-intuitive considering white's two bishops, and is a change from Suba, after failing to gain an advantage with 7.Be2

Suba vs Smyslov, 1982

The opening afterward looks like it would have gone many different ways. White's castling Q-side is also strange looking with this pawn-structure. Both kings come under heavy fire.

Suba sheds some material in the endgame to make his king safe while promoting his remaining pawn.

Oct-15-11  Everett: This is actually a pretty fantastic game,'likely riddled with mistakes that I don't see.

The game escalates tactically after 26.Re2 Qh5 27.Rf1, and here, I wonder if Black considered <27..Qg5+ 28.Rf4 <28.Kd1 Nxd5 29.cxd5 Rb1+> Nd3+ 29.Qxd3 Rxf4> Looks like fun, yet Black still has the same problem; namely Suba has managed to bury Black's c8 bishop.

I'm guessing after <31..Ke5 32.Rf5+ Qxf5 33.Nxf5 Kxf5 34.e7 Bd7 35.Bf7 Nxc4+ 36.Bxc4> is favorable to White, as Black loses time either tracking down e7 or saving his own a-pawn. In this line Black can also try <35..Kf6 36.e8=Q Bxe8 37.Bxe8 Nxc4+>. Material is even, yet the spread apart pawns superficially favors White, the side with the bishop.
