Sep-05-06  Dres1: Whats the point of 30.e6 ?
Sep-05-06  Marvol: It theatens exf7 followed by massacre on f8.
After the forced 30...Bxe6 31.Rxh7 threatens mate on h8. Now when black's king moves to e8 to step out of the mate: 31...Ke8, 32.Rh8+ Kd7 leaves the rook on a8 unprotected: 33.Rxa8 and white is ahead in material and has the much better position.

Without 30.e6 black would have stepped away with less damage done: 30.Rxh7 Ke8 31. Rh8+ Kd7 and white has to look hard to make any headway - while black is still ahead in material.

Hmmmmmm. 31.Rd1 first, rather than 31.Rh8+ rightaway? Not looking so good for Black then.

  whiteshark: <18...Bb7?> was the decisive error. The ♗ has to stay on c8-h3 diagonal for strengthening purpose.

Better was <18...a5> to force a retreat of ♖b4.

After e.g. <19.Rbb1 Rb8 20.Rfc1 dxc4 21.Rxc4 Qd7>

the position is still in balance.
