Kibitzer's Corner
May-26-06  aragorn69: As <Honza Cervenka> kindly pointed out, this is quite an intriguing game with a pretty finale!
May-26-06  AniamL: Seems to me that black is slightly better positionally after 21...Qa6, but I currently have no program to analyze the position. Would someone please run it through a computer for me?
May-26-06  dalbertz: I put it in my Fritz9 and it gave the position as +.26 for white with the following continuation:

22. Qd2 Rc8 23. b3 R4c7 24. Ba5 Rc6 25. Rxc6 bxc6 26. b4 Rf8 27. Rc1 Rf3 28. Rc3 Qb5

May-26-06  dalbertz: Would I be correct in thinking that black's trade of his good bishop for white's bad bishop at move 24 was a mistake?
May-26-06  Confuse: neat, never seen that before! three ponds in a row to create a winning position. cute...
May-26-06  Mendrys: < dalbertz: Would I be correct in thinking that black's trade of his good bishop for white's bad bishop at move 24 was a mistake? > It may have been a mistake to exchange the bishop but I don't think it was a decisive mistake. Black seems to be ok until 44....Qa3. After 44. f5 his queen really needed to be on e7 or f8 to keep the f pawn in check. 45. f6! was the winning move for white I believe.
May-30-06  AniamL: Thanks, <dalbertz>. Interesting to hear. It seems like black's pieces are a bit more coordinated, but I guess white has sufficient defence and a slightly better pawn structure.
