Nov-29-05  ajile: Why did White resign?
Nov-29-05  lopium: Well, the bishop is under menace, and white have to add a protection to his f3 rook, with Rdf1 for example, but then the bishop is lost.
Nov-29-05  notyetagm: 40 ... ♕g4! is a <double attack> against two loose pieces. Before this Black queen move both the White e4-bishop was loose (0 attackers, 0 defenders) and the White f3-rook was loose (2 attackers, 2 defenders). Then when Black played 40 ... ♕g4! he simultaneously added an attacker to each of these loose White pieces, putting them <both> en prise at the same time: the e4-bishop now has 2 attackers, 1 defender while the f3-rook now has 3 attackers, 2 defenders. White has no adequate way to meet this double threat and so resigns.

Quoting Dr. Nunn's famous saying, <LPDO - Loose Pieces Drop Off>. In particular, having two loose pieces on the board (e4-♗,f3-♖) while the enemy has his queen is an invitation to disaster (40 ... ♕g4!).

Nov-29-05  notyetagm: Is the Dutch really this simple? This is the second Black Dutch victory I have examined in two days in which White did not play a timely e4 and Black got in ... e5. <Don't these White players know that the antidote to the Dutch is to play an early e2-e4?> Waiting until move 23 to play e4 is too late, since Black already had a fine game by then.
Nov-29-05  notyetagm: <lopium: Well, the bishop is under menace, and white have to add a protection to his f3 rook, with Rdf1 for example, but then the bishop is lost.>

Yes, White has many ways to meet the threat to his f3-rook and he has many ways to meet the threat to his e4-bishop. <But White has no satisfactory way to meet both threats at the same time.> Like they say, tactics are based on double threats: you can meet one threat or the other easily enough but not both simultaneously.

  Mateo: Bruzon blundered with 39. Qb3?? Instead he should have tried 39. Rf1. If 39... Qc2 40. f4! with the better game for Black but maybe some saving chances.
Nov-30-05  notyetagm: <Mateo> Yes, Fritz 7 gave 39 ♕b3? the question mark, preferring instead 39 ♖a3.
