Kibitzer's Corner
May-05-13  Marmot PFL: I would probably also have played 34...Qxa5?!, but after 35 Qe5 black's position is incredibly hard to defend.
May-05-13  Just Another Master: how does this fat
May-06-13  Dr. Funkenstein: Excellent finish after 41. Qf6+Kd7 42. Qe7+ and

42. ... Kc8 43. Qe8+Qd8 44. Qxd8#

43. ...Kc6 43. Qe6+ Qc5 44. Qxc5#

In both cases the b7 bishop blocks the king's escape

May-06-13  Marmot PFL: Even quicker is 41 Qe8+. Hope Ben turns it around and wins some games.

  HeMateMe: I don't know about this opening. After 19 moves, black's LSB is imprisoned on b7. He seems to have a strategically lost game, early. Most people who play the Slav have some sort of early breakout moves, to activate that Bishop.
