Apr-20-07  chessmoron: 1. e4 <tournament created by Wilson Hu/chessmoron; Time control: 2 hours and a half> e5 <Notes by Matthew McKenna AKA themadhair> 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 Nf6 5. O-O Be7 6. Bxc6 <This had a high weighting in my opening book. In games between the free Rybka and Toga in this position Toga does very well. Curious. > dxc6 7. Qe1 c5 8. Nxe5 Qd4 9. Nf3 Qxe4 10. Qxe4 Nxe4 11. Re1 Nf6 12. d3 h6 13. Nc3 Be6 14. Ne2 g5 15. Bd2 Rg8 16. Ng3 O-O-O 17. h4 gxh4 18. Nxh4 c4 19. d4 Bf8 <19... Rxd4 20. Nhf5 Rd7 21. Nxe7+ Rxe7 22. Bxh6 Seems promising for white with the weak f-pawn and the bishop pair gone. > 20. Nf3 b6 21. c3 Kb7 22. a4 Rd5 23. Ne5 Ra5 24. Nf1 Nd7 25. Bf4 Bd6 26. Nd2 Nxe5 27. Bxe5 Be7! <Black can't be left with the bad bishop against knight endgame. > 28. Bf4 Rf5 29. Bg3 Bd8 30. a5!! <For me the move of the game. It cripples blacks queenside pawns and exchanges an active black rook for a passive one. Typical Toga idea. > Rxa5 <Losing. > 31. Rxa5 bxa5 32. Bf4 Bd5 33. f3 Bg5 <?! Literally seconds before this had being played. If the DSB's were removed from the board I think white may be able to win. I still expected Rybka to make the draw though if I am honest. > 34. Bxg5 Rxg5 35. Kf2 Kb6 36. Nf1 Be6 37. Re5 Rxe5 38. dxe5 Kc6 39. Ke3 Bd7 40. Ng3 Kd5 41. f4 Ba4 <At this stage Rybka was seeing the trouble it was in. > 42. Ne4 c5 43. Nf6+ Ke6 44. g4 Bd1 45. Kf2 a4 46. Kg3 Be2 47. Kh4 <The kingside infiltration is simple and effective. The rest of the game was played out for illustrative purposes more than anything else. > Bf3 48. Kh5 Bd1 49. Kxh6 Be2 50. Kg7 Bf3 51. f5+ Kxe5 52. Kxf7 Bxg4 53. Nxg4+ Kxf5 54. Ne3+ Ke4 55. Nc2 Kd3 56. Na3 Kd2 57. Ke7 Kc1 58. Nxc4 Kc2 59. Kd6 a3 1-0
