Mar-24-07  think: 26. d6 is a surprising move. What would have happened after 26. ... Bxd6?
Mar-24-07  rbelous: the point of 26.d6 is to open the diagonal with tempo for 27.Qh6+ and 28.Bc4+... doesn't matter how black takes back, the queen is better positioned on d6
Mar-24-07  Bingat29: If the bishop takes the d6 pawn, the same results ensues since the bishop at c4 is protected by the rook at the h file, unless black sacrifices the queen and then he can resign.
Mar-24-07  beatles fan: black was just slowly outplayed

  kevin86: The way white's pieces were massed on the seventh,I knew trouble was afoot. It was comical to see white's attack:a massive battering ram of forces. Black's was a solo impudent pawn-how pathetic---except if said pawn were only one square more forward.
Mar-27-07  weev: Whites bishop at c4 is covered by the rook (instead of taking the pawn with the queen), so 26.d6 was white's breakthrough move.
Mar-31-14  epicchess: Mikhail Shur is a very talented player, too bad he didn't want to pursue a chess career.
