  Gilmoy: As a French, it was finely balanced, like a large rock that teeters when you climb up on one side.

Then it slowly tipped into a Semi-Slav Botvinnik without the pawn rollers on either wing.

White's B feasted on pawns trapped on its color. Clever to see that far ahead and steer for a position where it becomes the decisive factor.

  Penguincw: Wow. Ponomariov fell for it. :0 58.c7 is next followed by rather promotion on c8 or d8.
Jan-07-12  rannewman: 44.d7 is a very nice move. The point is that 47...K:d7 is followd by 48.Bd5, leading to a won pawn endgame.
