  suenteus po 147: What's wrong with 27...Rxb7? I don't see the win here for Tartakower.
Apr-23-06  Goatleaf: Probably not the smartest idea to speculate on my first post, but:

If 27...Rxb7 28.Rxb7+ Kxb7 29.Qg2+ Ka6 30.Qc6#

Granted, there a few possible ways to stall that, sacrificing black queen or rook, but it seems untenable for black besides that.

  suenteus po 147: <Goatleaf> A good first post! However, what if, instead of 29...Ka6 in your line, black plays 29...Kb8? Where is the win then?
Apr-23-06  TimLo: if 29...Kb8 then 30. Rb5+ Kc7 31. Rb7+ with Q mating next move.

  suenteus po 147: <TimLo> In your line I see 31.Rb7+ Kc8 32.Qc6+ Nc7 with the knight defended by the black queen.

If 27...Rxb7 28. Rxb7+ Kxb7 29. Qg2+ Kb8 30. Rb5+ Kc7, White has <31. Qb7+> Kd6 32. Rd5#.

  suenteus po 147: <beatgiant> Thanks, I see the win now :)
Feb-08-08  ChessNe1: Could Winter gain any ground with 27...Qxg3+? What am I failing to see?
Feb-08-08  nescio: <ChessNe1: Could Winter gain any ground with 27...Qxg3+?>

27...Qxg3+ 28.Bg2+ Rb7 29.Rxb7+ Ka8 30.fxg3 Nxc5 31.Rb5+.

Feb-22-08  ChessNe1: thanks, <nescio>.
