  keypusher: Glad Ivanchuk did not get shut out.
May-24-09  zealouspawn: i'm definately happy for him
May-24-09  outsider: i fail to understand the position after white 42. Rf6. From my point of view, black may check Ra1, and after the only 43. Kg2 move Ra2. The best white can get to escape from this "eternal check/ tied Bishop pattern is Rook + 3 pawns versus Rook+ Bishop, which, given the position of the black King is a draw. Could please somebody elaborate?
May-24-09  blacksburg: <outsider> can't white defend the bishop and then break the pin?

for instance 42...Ra1+ 43.Kg2 Ra2 44.Rxf5+ Kd4(d6) 45.Re5, and then the bishop is defended by the rook on the e-file and white has time to break the pin with Kh3.

i dunno, maybe someone should check the Rybka, but it looks ok to me.

May-24-09  outsider: thank you.
May-24-09  kellmano: Bravo Chucky!! Great to see him win one. Sir - I salute your indefatigability.
May-27-09  M.D. Wilson: 1/10 is simply not good enough for Ivanchuk. Take a much needed break, my friend.
