Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-25-05  Raskolnikov: Exiting game: the White´s problem began probably with 29.♕c2. After 29...♗a4 Black is going to win some material. Some would expect 34...♗:a1 but Boris Savchenko chose an elegant solution 34...♗d4 and 35...♕:f3!!
Dec-29-05  notyetagm: What a nice <zwischenschach> (in-between check) by Savchenko, 34 ... ♗d4+! instead of just grabbing the rook with 34 ... ♗x♖a1. The point, actually played out in the game, is that Black has the magnificent 35 ... ♕xf3!! if the White king runs in the corner with 35 ♔h1. So the White king is forced into the open with 35 ♔f1 and <now>, after having played 34 ... ♗d4+! first, Black can take the a1-rook or exploit the newly exposed White f1-king.

Hence by playing the in-between check 34 ... ♗d4+! first, before grabbing the a1-rook, Black gives himself the opportunity to win the game brilliantly and immediately.

May-13-06  Raskolnikov: <notyetagm> If 35.♔f1 then 35...♕c4+ 36.♔e1 ♕e2 mate.
