Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-06-04  Whitehat1963: Complex. I'm not sure why Gelfand took as long as he did to resign after he loses the queen. Is the loss of the queen just a blunder or is there another reason?
Feb-24-04  pencuse: I think it is because that Gelfand wanted to reduce the number of attacking black pieces, in order to reduce the strength of the black's attack, by giving the queen. If it had moved the queen to another place, black's knight would have taken the rook and the number of black pieces would have been 3. Quantitatively, giving queen reduces the number of attacker pieces. But this strategy did not compensate room and open line advantages of black.
Jul-28-05  Dres1: He didnt lose his queen, he got a rook and a knight for it.
Jul-28-05  aw1988: White does not resign merely because of the queen, but Black also has this a-pawn.
