  Sim1: Feels like this should have been a win for black. What do people think the weakest moves were? 14....Rf7 and 28...Re6 both look suboptimal to me, but I'm a scrub.

  louispaulsen88888888: Yeah I think bring the rook all the way back 14...R-B1. Still itís about even until 29...RxP?? Unpinning with Q-B2! and black is ok.

  Sim1: So, there's an engine on chessgames now? Cool. Well it seems to think Rf7 is a huge innacuracy, goes from -0.94 to -0.06, so a real loss of tempo.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sim1: You are right louispaulsen8888888, the unpin would be much stronger.

  louispaulsen88888888: I donít bother with the engine. I imagine you are right about 28...Re6. What does that Stockfish thing say about that?
