  Gypsy: How is Ne2 answered?
Jan-20-05  Republic of Texas: Wouldn't 62. Qe3 hold against 62. ..., Ne2?
Jan-20-05  ChessMan94: I say Black should take the f pawn and look for a way to win...
Jan-20-05  Stevens: we're about to find out! it's been played! i'm guessing maybe Qe3?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gypsy: I guess we will see.
Jan-20-05  acirce: <Wouldn't 62. Qe3 hold against 62. ..., Ne2?> Maybe "hold" but Black continues to press with 62..Qf1 63.Bf2 Nxc3 64.Bxh4 Ne4 -- now with a passer. Maybe 62.Bf2 is best.

  Gypsy: We did not consider the pawn endgame yet (I did not) ...

  Annie K.: 61...Ne2 62. Qe4+ Kh6 (if Kg/h8 Qe8+ repeat as needed) 63. Be3 looks dangerous for black, no?
Jan-20-05  InspiredByMorphy: I dont see how this game wont end in a draw.

  Gypsy: <    Annie K.: 61...Ne2 62. Qe4+ Kh6 (if Kg/h8 Qe8+ repeat as needed) 63. Be3 looks dangerous for black, no? > Whatch out for 62...dxe4.
Jan-20-05  arielbekarov: Why not Bf2 ?
Jan-20-05  SCUBA diver: Annie, you cannot play 62. Qe4, the queen is lost
Jan-20-05  InspiredByMorphy: Maybe 63.Qg4 would be good?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: oops, missed the pawn, thanks guys :)
Jan-20-05  InspiredByMorphy: Looks like blacks might come out on top after 63. ...Qxf4+
Jan-20-05  InspiredByMorphy: Nevermind. Overlooked 64.Qxf4 Nxf4 65.Bxh4
Jan-20-05  percyblakeney: Black would still be better after Qxf4+ and so on, but not enough to win I guess?!
Jan-20-05  SCUBA diver: Now black cannot prevent perpetual
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gypsy: <InspiredByMorphy: Nevermind. Overlooked 64.Qxf4 Nxf4 65.Bxh4> That probably is where Adams is heading. (I would.) The N vs B endgame is going to be a hard work. Black does have fair chences though.
Jan-20-05  arielbekarov: Another great game in this great tournament !
Thank you all and until next time !
Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: What is a winning plan for Black? King on e4 and Knight on e2 would be ideal, but White can prevent King penetration with g4...
Premium Chessgames Member Thanks to everybody for coming by today. Next game in morning 7:30am EST (Miami time).

  patzer2: Terrific defensive play by Judit Polgar in this game!
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: I'm glad Polgar held the draw, but I'm also pleased Adams made her work for it. Nice game by both players.
Premium Chessgames Member
  patzer2: While Judit played outstanding defensive chess following 44. Qa5!?, she missed the more obvious 35. Bf2 (not 35. Ba2? dropping the pawn), remaining a pawn up with advantage.
