  patzer2: White plays a double attack to win a pawn with advantage after 24. axb5 axb5 25. Qe2!

Black probably should have replied 25...Ng7 26. Bxb5 f5 27. exf5 Qxe2 28. Bxe2 Nxf5 29. Bc4 with only a small White advantage, despite the extra pawn.

However, after 25...c4 26. Qxh5 White gains a clear advantage, which he skillfully pushes to an instructive endgame win.

  tamar: Black ends up losing the d pawn after 29...Ra8. His best bet was a show of force on the c file, and the d pawn may be enough to draw.

29...Rbc8 30 b4 Rc8-c4 and Black has a very active position.

  patzer2: <Tamar> Thanks for the Master-level analysis. Fritz 8 confirms that 29...Rbc8! seems to hold the position with some drawing chances for Black.

  tamar: <patzer2> Thanks for the compliment, but I only had the idea 29...Rbc8 after seeing your note and wondering if Black missed anything. Shredder did the legwork.
