Sep-13-07  chessic eric: oh neat. Thanks <> !!
Sep-13-07  jeremy24: 2nd to comment!
Sep-13-07  talisman: we got the Ballgame on!
Sep-13-07  chessic eric: While d4 is hanging, the exchange of blacks dark bishop makes the open h-file fairly menacing.
Sep-13-07  you vs yourself: Moro has some work to do in getting that h-rook into play.
Sep-13-07  jeremy24: Not Bxp which loses to Nxp RxN Bb2
Sep-13-07  mack: Thank you, <cg>. Minimal fuss in the switchover there.

Thanks to everybody for coming today; see you tomorrow.

Sep-13-07  chessic eric: <you vs yourself: Moro has some work to do in getting that h-rook into play.>

It seems well placed to me.

Sep-13-07  you vs yourself: <chess eric> You think so? To me, it seems that rook can do much more in the center and possibly even more if it can go to the 7th rank. Don't see how it is useful on the h-file.
Sep-13-07  chessic eric: <you vs yourself> Well, there are some tactics down the h-file if the dark-squared bishop exchanges on d4, as noted by <jeremy24> below. Kg2 is definitely a useful move to make the h1 rook more active, but it's got considerable real estate as it stands.
Sep-13-07  chessic eric: 24...Ree8 entails that 25.Rxa7 is a trade for a4 after 25...Ra8
Sep-13-07  talisman: knight-g4 maybe?
Sep-13-07  SCUBA diver: There is nothing wrong with R-h4. ...
Sep-13-07  chessic eric: <talisman: knight-g4 maybe?> A liquidation line is as follows:

25.Ng5,f6 26.Rxg7+,Kxg7 27.Bxf8+,Rxf8 28.Ne6+

Sep-13-07  talisman: thanks eric...i meant kn-g5
Sep-13-07  TheBB: I take it the clocks are right?
Sep-13-07  Duque Roquero: any computer evaluation?
Sep-13-07  chessamateur: All draws today.
Premium Chessgames Member
  AgentRgent: LoL, perfect timing! NOT
Sep-13-07  Marmot PFL: Once a4 falls it looks like a draw, unless Moro can do something with the more active king.
Sep-13-07  Duque Roquero: They're all chickens! None of them deserves the WC title.
Sep-13-07  pacelli: The World Championship Tournament is a marathon, not a sprint. Everyone knows that conserving energy is important for the final stretch of the race.
Sep-13-07  acirce: <Everyone knows that conserving energy is important for the final stretch of the race.>

Funny how it seems fans of every sport except chess understand this simple fact.
