  Mateo: 24.Bxf6? (24.Qxg4 Nxg4 25.e4 was good) Bf3! end of the show.
Oct-04-07  anandrulez: Why b5 and also axb5 ? Can anyone explain ? Thanks
Oct-04-07  Helloween: <anandrulez>13...b5 gains useful Queenside space. White doesn't take here because the pin along the a-file would create counterplay. After 13...b5 14.axb5 axb5 15.Bxb5 Black plays 15...Bxf3! 16.gxf3(forced, for if the Queen leaves e2,Bc1-Bb2 is no longer the response to Bc3, i.e. 16.Qxf3 Bc3 and White's best is to lose the exchange with 17.Nxc3 Rxa1) 16...cxd4 17.exd4 and White has horrendous pawn structure(4 isolated pawn islands, one is doubled). This is more than enough positional compensation on an open baord for someone like Adams.
Oct-07-07  fromoort: <Helloween>Nice explanation, thanks.
Oct-09-07  anandrulez: Thanks for the useful explanation Helloween . The board is opened after bxf3 , but I was wondering how to realize the compensation like any defenitive ideas? Comps like white after bxb5 , hence my question .
Oct-09-07  Helloween: After 13...b5 14.axb5 axb5 15.Bxb5 Bxf3 16.gxf3 cxd4 White can either develop and give back the pawn with 17.Bb2(probably the best choice and about equal), or risk regaining the pawn by playing 17.exd4 when the game could go as follows: 17...Bd6 18.Bg5(connects Rooks defending a1)Nb6 19.Nc3(finishing development)h6 20.Bxf6 Qxf6 21.Ne4 Qg6+ 22.Kh1 Bf4 when Black will attack on the Kingside and dark squares(f4, h2). Black maybe plays Nb6-d5-e7-f5. Typical Adams Kingside squeeze.
