Jul-19-10  beenthere240: Robson should have been busted on his previous KID; this was beautiful to see. He treated his opponent with no respect and got his aardvark handed to him.

  FSR: Yes, I have no idea what possessed him to play it a second time.

Here, black choses to open up the queenside with 23...b5. Would 23...♗e5 with the idea of ...♔g7 and ...♖h8 have been a better plan?

Position after 23...♗e5:

Note: 24. f4 seems to fail to 24...♗d4! where white's DSB is pinned to the ♘d2 and the ♘d2 cannot capture on account of ...♕xg3.

Jul-20-10  LarsenBentYou: I know I'm missing something so someone clear it up for me. Why not: 38... h1=Q+ 39. Kxh8 Rh8+ 40. Kg2 (40. Kg1 Qa1+ 41. Kg2 Qh1+ 42. Kg3 Rh3#) Qh2+, and I'm not good enough to see where it goes from there, so somebody who's legit tell me if it does go anywhere.
Jul-20-10  ounos: <LarsenBentYou>: simply 42. Kf1, and there is no attack.

The ease with which a bishop on the lond diagonal defends the king against Q+R is quite well known, and thematic in the black side of the sicilian dragon (where white can directly attack on the h file, but the Bishop at g7 parries it with no sweat).
