  rodrigochaves: 55. Bh4! was a nice wait move. The black king have to move and after 56.Bf6 black is in zugzwang.

The cuban, like Capablanca, plays very well the endgames.

Jun-18-09  nuwanda: hi <rodrigochaves>,

on move 55 just bringing the bishop to the a1-h8 diagonal, such as Bc1,d2,etc., would do as well. Just bringing the bishop at once there 55.Bf6 is a draw due to the trick 55...Bh6

the final position is no zugzwang, just simply lost, no matter who is to move

...

Jun-18-09  luzhin: Dominguez's 47.f3 could have been a very costly over-subtlety instead of the simple 47.Kxh7. Black could have answered 47.f3 with a brilliant positional double pawn sac, viz: 47...g5!! and after 48.hxg5 Bd8! 49.Bh4 e4!! 50.fxe4 Kc5 it's very hard to see how White can force the win.
Jun-18-09  WhiteRook48: then bishop to g7 and it's all over
Jun-19-09  luzhin: WhiteRook48,in what position are you suggesting Bg7? It can't move there from h4!
Jun-19-09  WhiteRook48: I was suggesting that after Black moves in the end, white moves the bishop to g7, cutting its contact off h6
Jun-19-09  luzhin: I see. My comment was about how Black could have avoided this denouement by improving on move 47.

Actually, White should be winning in this line rather easily after 50.f4! (instead of fxe4?), keeping the pawns connected. However, there does seem to be a way for Black to draw by <47...Be3!> 48.Kxh7 (or 48.Bxe5 Kd5 and Black gains an important tempo for bringing his king to f5/f7 and defending g6) 48...g5 49.hxg5 Bxg5 (or 49.h5 Kd5 followed by e4).

Jun-20-09  cracknik: Vert nice instructive game.
Jun-21-09  luzhin: Eyal, you're right: that's the way to do it, rather than playing g5 immediately.
Jun-22-09  Comejen: Dominguez in this game reminds me of Capablanca.
I think this game is a real tribute to the unforgettable Capablanca
