Apr-14-08  Whitehat1963: What's the finish?
Apr-14-08  Andrew Chapman: h5 maybe comes into it? It certainly looks hopeless if you are playing a stronger player whose expertise is in accumulating positional advantages and strangling the opposition slowly
Apr-06-09  aazqua: I think the finish is that white has an extra pawn, a protected passed pawn, pressure on the king's side and black has absolutely no counter play. I'm not sure I could beat Humpy in this position but I'm pretty sure that Adams could.
Apr-16-16  tigreton: The key of the game is the c6 square. First, Adams controls it with Cd2-b3-a5. Later he puts his bishop on b3 so, in case the knight on c6 were captured, suddenly there would be a lot of pressure along this diagonal, specially against f7. Adams masterly combines play on the queenside and the kingside. And the c6 square is a trampoline for different White pieces, the knight, the rook, and finally a passed pawn.
