May-24-13  chessdgc2: Now, it seems that White has things cut out for him after 1. Bxe5
May-24-13  DcGentle: Black's queen now is on e8. 28. Bf1 is possible, although this looks passive.
May-24-13  chessdgc2: After 1. Bf1 Black has to worry about the e5-N
May-24-13  DcGentle: After 28. Bh5, 29. Bxe5 is a real threat.
May-24-13  chessdgc2: DcGentle: I missed 1. Bh5...however, here's another possibility: 1. Bxe5 Rxe2 2.Qd3!
May-24-13  DcGentle: Now material is about equal, but White has the bishop pair and Black two knights. *hmm*
May-24-13  DcGentle: White is threatening 32. f4.
May-24-13  chessdgc2: Yes, the results of this game could very well serve as a future argument as to which is better, the B-pair or stay tuned!
May-24-13  talisman: <DcGentle> my thoughts exactly. white's bishops biting on granite at least for now. Blacks ♘'s active.
May-24-13  chessdgc2: But both players may not wish to risk further play
May-24-13  DcGentle: The position is not yet open enough for the bishops to shine, but once some pawns are gone, the situation will have changed. So Black maybe wants to keep the pawns on the board? Not easy... The other option is trading bishop and knights.
May-24-13  DcGentle: 33. f4 now is even a stronger threat.
May-24-13  talisman: didn't see that one...thought a rook move somewhere. <DcG> right. white gets f4 black got trouble.
May-24-13  DcGentle: 33. f3 looks passive.
May-24-13  DcGentle: In other news: Svidler vs. Caruana is a draw and Ivanchuk has the advantage over Perez.
May-24-13  talisman: looks like f3 was a mistake. queen checks does nothing.
May-24-13  DcGentle: <talisman>: Right.
May-24-13  waustad: I suspect they just trade down to a draw here.
May-24-13  DcGentle: Now the game will most likely end in a draw.

Oh well.

May-24-13  chessdgc2: Goodness, went to get something to eat...hamburger and corn on the cob...looks like Moro has put it back together again...still hard to see a clear win, but Black's activity could lead to it
May-24-13  DcGentle: Black can only win with White making an error, I guess.
May-24-13  chessdgc2: Black's N should be a bit irritating for White...White has to get his pieces doing something far more constructive, but does anyone see anything for him?
May-24-13  chessdgc2: 1...exf4 is more logical
