Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-21-04  ConLaMismaMano: On this game i think Vasquez showed he had big nuts (even though this was a Blitz game).
Jun-21-04  acirce: All theory at least to move 26. Then I don't know.. White has some promising tries but Vasquez' just failed and led to an immediately lost position.
Jul-23-05  midknightblue: <ConLaMismaMano> This type of game definitely testez your chess knowledge
Aug-25-05  EmperorAtahualpa: The loss of the a-pawn is inevitable. (if Kb2 then Nd1)
Apr-16-09  rangek: It's not so much the loss of the A-pawn as it is a forced queen trade which rids the pesky white queen!
Sep-27-09  moteutsch: You are incorrect rangek. In fact, either white loses his queen, or the is a forced mate after 1. Qd2 Qg1+ 2. Kb2 Qb1#
Feb-12-11  Salaskan: Apparently 27.Bd5+? was a bad novelty, theory is 27.Kb1 preventing black from gaining a tempo with Qe3+ once the white queen has moved. Then 27...Bxg7 28.fxg7 Rhg8 29.Qh7 Ne7 30.Bxg8 Rxg8 31.Re1= (white can't attack without allowing a perpetual).
Jul-30-13  quinlan: 20. Ne6!, winning at once! Black has no a good response to that, because then comes Qf5 in combination with Bh3, preparing Rxf7!
Jul-30-13  quinlan: Unbeliavable! Vásquez fails again! With 25. Rxf7! he wins in all variants.
Jul-30-13  Rrrto2005: Ne6 and 25 Rxf7 are a winning moves? Are you sure, Guilan? Show me the variants, please
