  Honza Cervenka: 28...Rxe6? was pretty naive. After 28...Rde7 29.Nf4 Rxe1+ 30.Rxe1 Rxe1+ 31.Qxe1 the ending is quite equal.
May-07-04  valenti: I would agree.
Oct-12-07  eurochess: Rxe6..... I agree.......before that though, black had already made some errors such as playing too aggressively in my opinion.
Oct-12-07  eurochess: In 31. Qg3, don't you have other options besides Kc8 and self bank-ranking yourself?

  Phony Benoni: <eurochess> Black doesn't have a whole lot of options after 31.Qg3+. He gets mated quickly after either 31...Kd8 32.Qb8+ Nc8 33.Rg8+ Qe8 34.Whichever-rook-you-pleasexe8# and 31...Rd6 32.Qxd6+ Kc8 33.Rg8+ is essentially the same thing.

Black might be able to avoid mate temporatily with 31...Qe5, but losing a queen in addition to being down the exchange doesn't qualify as living the high life.

No, I don't see any way Harmonist could have danced away from this one.

Dec-27-07  eurochess: Oh, I see. Thanks.
