  kingscrusher: b4 looks as if some counterplay is being drummed up with rb2 if the bishop takes it.
Sep-06-11  twinlark: omg...
Sep-06-11  twinlark: She's toasted.
Sep-06-11  graupera: b4 is suicide

  watwinc: More likely an attempt at the long diagonal, I'd say
Sep-06-11  wordfunph: uh ohhh... 44.b4?? and Lenier quickly played 44.Be3
Sep-06-11  twinlark: Nicely played by Dominguez.
Premium Chessgames Member
  watwinc: Yes, he keeps white off the long diagonal and protects against a rook on a7.
Sep-06-11  leprechaunz: i see a mate, polgar is dead meat
Premium Chessgames Member
  watwinc: Rg1+ Kh3 Qf6 Qxe3 g4#
Sep-06-11  leprechaunz: i thought 46...f4, maybe im wrong
Premium Chessgames Member
  watwinc: I mentally moved the g-pawn for black - white mates in my "winning" line...

  kingscrusher: Apparently on move 44 Bd3 was virtually forced to allow Qc4 (if Be3) and when Qg5 occurs to be able to play Qh4. But now the White king has had it. It was very tricky for White anyway.
Sep-06-11  MTuraga: She lost a drawn game????
Sep-06-11  graupera: what a mistake by Polgar!! Not in a time trouble...
Sep-06-11  Strongest Force: He made Judit look soft :(
Sep-06-11  leprechaunz: its a very big blunder by polgar, it is very easy to calculate that mate
Premium Chessgames Member
  Honza Cervenka: I think this shows how difficult it is to defend a passive and somewhat inferior position. Bad moves are coming in easily in such a situation.
Sep-06-11  leprechaunz: is there a 2nd game now?
Sep-06-11  graupera: looks like she was uncomfortable and unhappy with the position since the opening finnished, and when managed to simplify a bit to equalize then the blunder would be interesting to see what would happen if she played 44.Bd3 instead of the sad b4...
Sep-06-11  Illogic: If she played Bd3 her position was still difficult.
Sep-06-11  wordfunph: from TWIC..

"I think it was a good game, it was important I got an easy position to play with black from the opening and I think the pressure was on white from the opening. That was my strategy all the time."

- GM Leinier Dominguez

Sep-07-11  raul555: Congratulations Leinier, you are one of the few hispanoamericans in top chess. GO!
Sep-07-11  znsprdx: Sep-07-11
znsprdx: Everyone mentions the 44.Bd3 plan. Why does no one consider the simple Bf1? I'd love to see 'engine' feedback on that.

  tpstar: 33 ... Bd4 is the beginning of the end for White, then Black dominates the QRB vs QRB position (even with BOOC) to wrap it up nicely. Sharp game.
