May-25-04  panigma: saw that? Good lord.
May-25-04  Whitehat1963: <Honza Cervenka>, what happens if black plays 25...Qxd6 26. Rd1, Qc7?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Honza Cervenka: If 25...Qxd6 26.Rd1 Qc7, then 27.Nc5 Ka8 28.e5 Nh5 29.Rd7 Qc6 30.Rxb7 Rb8 (else 31.Rb6) 31.Rxb8 Rxb8 32.Qxf7 etc.
May-27-04  panigma: OK, Honza. We all assume you are quite good, so this post is for you...your analysis of the win for white required a 12-ply analysis with 2 or 3 different move sequences. My limited intelligence will never allow me to see that far in advance (which will therefore never allow me to be very good at chess), but I have a more basic question. Why would black, even if he were to see the eventual win for white, resign before he is sure that white sees it as well? After all, we have all seen examples where GMs miss moves that will win.
May-27-04  drukenknight: it's a good pt. But even better would be to study his analysis and find an improvement.
