  tpstar: Vasssssssily!

<f pawn is finished> I think you mean the Pg7. =)

Sep-14-11  Cemoblanca: It is a position where you like to make errors.
Sep-14-11  hedgeh0g: Easy draw. The queenside will be liquidated and Black's king is in front of White's pawns.
Sep-14-11  kellmano: Vassily now staring at Sasha and picking his nose.

That's not a joke.

Sep-14-11  bangkokgambit: very difficult to defend
Sep-14-11  Cemoblanca: 38.Kh3 is a draw. Yes! :0)
Sep-14-11  Cemoblanca: Now 38...b5!
Sep-14-11  Bluegrey: Yeah yeah g7
Sep-14-11  Colonel Mortimer: <hedgeh0g> On the button:)
Sep-14-11  Cemoblanca: It's easy to say from here, but black has still a bit of work.
Sep-14-11  Shams: Apparently 40.Kf6 Rxb7 41.Rxa3 isn't an easy draw?
Sep-14-11  Cemoblanca: How much time has Chucky left?
Sep-14-11  Shams: Sorry, 39...Kf6 40.Rxb7 Rxa3 was the line I meant, obviously.
Sep-14-11  hedgeh0g: Black just needs to hang on to that g-pawn and exchange b for a. Giving White connected passers is an unnecessary complication.
Sep-14-11  Bluegrey: Yeah Its not an easy draw. Because the pg5 will come under attck. Black can attck whites fpawn but grischchuk will simply advance it one step. But I gues objectively this game is still a draw.
Sep-14-11  Bluegrey: ok now its an easy white win 1-0 for sure
Sep-14-11  Cemoblanca: White expresses powerful.
Sep-14-11  hedgeh0g: Yes, it looks like Black has gone wrong here...
Sep-14-11  Shams: This sucks. Grischuk plays the mongoose in game one.
Sep-14-11  Cemoblanca: 39...Kf5!? was maybe better.
Sep-14-11  kellmano: Never ceases to amuse me how often the 'easy draw' brigade are wrong.
Sep-14-11  bangkokgambit: Ok, he resigned
Sep-14-11  Philistine: No!!!! Chucky, my love!
