Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-18-10  ounos: So much for playing waiting chess.
Jun-18-10  Jim Bartle: What's the point of 20. Rh1 if he brings it back to d1 three moves later?
Jun-18-10  Brandon plays: Admittedly at the end, black was looking a bit precarious. I didn't see, however, any crushing attack. What am I missing?
Jun-18-10  ounos: Not much. But white eventually made progress, whereas black only shuffled.

  HeMateMe: I think after 40...B-d7 white plays 41.g5 and either recaputures on g5 with the Knight with gruesome penetration, or white gets to play ...g6 and open up the diagonal for the dark square Bishop, with more problems for black.
Jun-19-10  falso contacto: black is about to lose the f7 pawn and the game. natural defending bishop removed. lazaro can see that.
Jun-20-10  1. h4: You guys are missing the point. White has nothing to attack f7 with, which can be easily defended by a rook anyways.

The win is in a forced line, which you will find fairly simple once you see it.

40...Bd7; 41.Be5+ (the key move) Kc7; 42.Rd3 and suddenly Black will lose a piece when White switches his rooks back with 43.Rhd1.

The best I see for Black is 42...Na7 43.Rhd1 Kc8, but this is handled by 44.Nd6+.

See, that wasn't so hard, was it? :)

Jun-20-10  unionruler: 40 ... Bd7 41 Be5+ Kb7 42 Rd3 and black can't do much to stop 43 Rhd1? If 42 ... Na7 to vacate square for king simply 43 Nd6+ and takes on f7
Jun-20-10  falso contacto: Be5 is a good move. I wasn't thinking about that. Still, strategical advantage is huge.
Jun-20-10  sharkbenjamin: 40...Bd7 41.Be5+ Kb7 42.Rd3 you pin and you win! White will double the rooks with Rhd1 and black will lose the bishop. If black plays 42. ... Na7 then white plays 43. Nd6+ followed by 44. Nf7 with the fork of the two black rooks.
Jun-20-10  1. h4: Um...good job guys. You basically just repeated what I said.
Jun-21-10  ounos: By the way, after 40. ...Bd7, <41. Be5+> is the killer move. After black's passive play, white has pushed black back and left his pieces hinder each other instead of helping. After 41. ...Kb7, the play could continue 42. Rd3 or 42. Rd1, doubling the rooks on the d file, where black's bishop can neither be protected nor retreat to e8.
Jun-21-10  falso contacto: you would play 1.h4. shouldnt be proud about that.
Jun-21-10  1. h4: <falso>

False. I'm actually a 1.d4 player. No kidding.

Jun-21-10  1. h4: And I see that <ounos> is simply mocking me. :)
