  An Englishman: Good Evening: Our Opening of the Day produced this oddity, a game that starts strange and then turns wild. It's another one of those games that gets more complex as the pieces come off the board.

  Gypsy: <31...Rg8> A strong move after which White is short of good moves:

(1) <32.g3 Bg5+ 33.Kg4 Be3+ 32.Kh3 Bxd4 33.Rxd4 e3 ...> and White pieces are out of position to stop the victory march of Black central pawns.

(2) 32.Rd2? Bg5+ ...

(3) 32.Rg1?! Bd6+ 33.Ke3 Bxh2 ...

  whiteshark: <29. f5!?> should be considered.

The idea is to create a protected passed pawn wit <30. g4> The ♙a7 weakness doesn't run off.
