Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-06-04  Helloween: A truly double-edged game worthy of deep analysis. For a moment it looked as if Black had triumphed defensively, but White found the resources necessary to balance the game. Black then eschewed the draw and got into trouble, eventually losing. He was probably still in shock because he had been so confident in his position just a few moves earlier.
Jul-06-04  Eatman: Fascinating back and forth struggle. Does seem black had ways of holding on at times, but choose to play on (possibly not wanting to draw with a lower rated opponent in World Open early rounds).

  kevin86: How did white pull this one out? At one time,he has two queens against him and his attack seems to fizzle out. Black,however,refuses to go for the sure draw,even after the counterattack has weakened,then he falls into a mate trap.
Jul-06-04  Shadout Mapes: I'm not convinced by this one. Why not 33...Kg8? 34.Rg7+ Qxg7 35.Rxg7+ Kf8 looks safe
Jul-06-04  Helloween: 33...Kg8 34.Rxg6+ hxg6(forced) 35.Bxd4 is a draw because Black can never win the b2-pawn. Still, it would have put a little more pressure on White than the game continuation, which was an easy draw for White.

  Zenchess: That's happened to me; I had a dead drawn B ending against a master, he tried for the win and failed, and then I went on to win.
Jul-06-04  themindset: it looks like 32...Qde4 would have won easily.
Jul-06-04  Chesspatch: I think so too... anyone knows why black didn't play that?
Jul-06-04  DivineKnight: I'll ask him when I get the chance.
Jul-07-04  DivineKnight: Well Fritz says Qde4 is a killer and this is a "Fritz-friendly" position so my guess is that Blas was under 5 minutes or something. I'll ask him if I get a chance and get back to you is you want.

  Sneaky: DivineKnight, you know Blas? Where do you live, Miami? I'm in Ft. Lauderdale.
Nov-07-04  Ernesto7: i ve seen Blas play and hes, a figther ,even at his club playing casually he almost never wants to draw...that migth be why he didn't settle in this game...
