  An Englishman: Good Evening: Excellent defensive gem from our Player of the Day for 21 March 2011. Black's defense against the early King side attack consists of a combination that begins on move 14 and doesn't end until he secures an extra pawn on move 22.

The ending itself contains much of interest as Sasikiran faces the classic problem of 4 vs. 3, all on one side of the board. Unusually, the pawns are on the Queen side. Black's solution (move 34) would make for a good Thursday-Friday puzzle, a very subtle move that threatens to swap the Knight for all three of White's pawns. The tricky part of the puzzle is that Sasikiran actually permits the fork of King and Knight, but this is harmless; after 36...Kb2; 37.Rd1,Kc2 wins back the Knight.

Mar-21-11  joupajou: Agree with <An Englishman> that 34. ..Kb4 was a well planned sac.

Sasikirian missed an easier ending, though: 34. ..Re2!
