Jul-07-13  Whitehat1963: What's the finish?
Jul-05-18

  fredthebear: White has just played 26.g5 which threatens a royal fork with 27.g6+. If 26...hxg5 then 27.fxg5 retains the threat. This in itself is certainly not enough to resign over, but Black is feeling discomfort. The Black queen is overloaded, defending Pc7 and the h5-square. White has the squares on the open f-file covered against penetration.

There is no quick finish to this game, but Black needs to untangle a bit. Any KID player would be a bit discouraged having to defend an exposed kingside instead of having the initiative there. Black has Nxf4 available. Given all the firepower remaining on board, FTB thinks Black should have kept playing since White's attack-to-finish is not a sure thing. Remember, the defender needs to find only one safe course of action, whereas the attacker must account for numerous possibilities.
