  whiteshark: Monica Sochko:

"I think I played more or less normal in the opening. Just later on I think <21…Bc6> was a mistake. I could have chosen <21…Rfe8> and position would be equal. I was slightly worse during the game but the crucial mistake was <33…g5?> but I didn’t want to wait which was better actually. I could have played <33…Kf6> and just wait.

I don’t think its easy to find good plan for white even my position is worse."

  whiteshark: Ruan Lufei:

"I didn’t prepare for the opening but I also agree that white has slightly better position because of isolated pawn d5. I didn’t see the winning plan and in the time troubles I just wanted to make some moves and wait. I agree that after <33...g5> white is better because f5-pawn became my target and after I won it was not easy for black to defend any more."

  perfidious: The comments from both players to this struggle underscore the difficulties of defending these positions where one is the possessor of the IQP in an ending. While objectively these endgames may be only slightly inferior (and our silicon friends would probably confirm that view), the type of defence involved is often arduous, and one small slip may transform that small inferiority into a loss.
Sep-18-12  Blunderdome: Ruan did a good job making something form nothing (or at least, from very little) here.
Sep-18-12  dorn: Not <33...g5> but <35...Rf8> was a crucial blunder.
