Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-13-05  patzer2: McNab plays a strong game against Georgiev, but misses a simple defensive move that would have given him equality and drawing chances.

Instead of 22...Nb6? which forces the loss of the exchange, without advantage, I think Black should have played 22...Rb8! Play might have continued 23.Qc6 Bb7 24.Qe6 (24.Qa4 Nd6 25.Nxg4 Nxe4 26.Ndxf6 Nexf6 27.Nxf6 Bxf6 28.Rxd7 Qe8) 24...Nb6 25.Nxb6 Qxb6 26.Qxg4 Nd6 27.Rab1 Qc7 28.Nf1 Rfd8=, with about even counterchances.

Feb-13-05  patzer2: While the discovered attack 24. Nc7! wins the exchange, and eventually the game, the simple recapture 24. Qxc4! may have been just about as effective:

After 24.Qxc4! Nd6 25.Qe2 Qd7 26.Rab1 Qf7 27.Rbc1 Rb8 28.Nxg4 Bxg4 29.Qxg4 f5 30.exf5 Qxf5 31.Ne3 Qxg4 32.Nxg4 Ne4 33.Bxe5 Bxe5 34.Nxe5 , White's two extra pawns should be enough to win.
