Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-21-07  BlackNightmare: time control?
Nov-22-07  RookFile: Well, it's called the World blitz championship, maybe that means G/5.
Nov-22-07  amuralid: Time control is actually 4 min and +2 sec per move.
Nov-26-07  watchchess79: Can any one show me the winning line for black here??
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <watchchess79> This is the best line, according to Shredder:

1. (-1.08): 31.Qxd4 Bxd5 32.cxd5 Ra4 33.b4 Rb8 34.Nc3 Raxb4 35.Qe3 Rc8 36.Kd2 Qf7 37.Be4 Rbc4 38.Rc1

It is also possible, that black won on time...

Feb-27-08  eisenherz: The black threat here is Bxd5 and if cxd5 then Rc8 and white loses its queen.

The position is won for black according to Junior 9, the best line for white being:

31.Qe7 Qxe7 32.Nxe7 Bh6 33.Rf1 Bxh3 34.Rh1 Bxf4+ 35.Kc2 Re8 36.Nxg6+ hxg6 37.Rxh3+ Kg7

Against 31.Qd4 Qc6 32.Be4 Qa4 33.Rd1 Bxh3

Nov-07-09  PeterB: This game is a perfect illustration of what Kasparov said, that Black shouldn't be afraid to be a pawn or so down when playing the KID!
