Jun-18-09  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

  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

  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

  luzhin: I see. My comment was about how Black could have avoided this denouement by improving on move 47.

<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.>

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.

  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
