Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-23-11  stst: Positions after 53 and 62 are pretty subtle.
While Hou gambled at 53 (R for pair of N,) she's wary at 62 to go up against a queening P on h. Some end-game study at these two junctures.
Jun-23-11  Bobsterman3000: The trade of R for 2 knights seems like a mistake for Hou. It took her 4 moves to rehabilitate her own remaining knight while the black pawns rolled up the kingside...
Jun-23-11  hellopolgar: according to the engine trading the rook for two knights is the best continuation, it's just that at that point, white is already lost.
Jun-23-11  Bobsterman3000: ah, ok thanks...

  HeMateMe: Not enough counterplay for the sacrificed pawn.
Jun-23-11  HAPERSAUD: yifan who?
Jun-23-11  4tmac: hellopolgar kind of summed it up. Normally the 2 pieces can find some play but Black did a good job of using the rook & pawns. 62...h4!

  perfidious: This ending of R+2 vs B+N should be clearly better for Black, as he has no weaknesses and the minor pieces don't coordinate well, plus lack strong squares. Once the rook broke into the enemy camp, it was all up with White.
