Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-19-13  superstoned: Was ...g6-g5 ever possible around move 21 or 22?
Jul-20-13  Jamboree: 22. ... Rxg4?? just seems to lose a piece or an exchange, as Black forgot that the queen was needed to apply pressure along the diagonal to prevent g4 from trapping his bishop. But after 22. ...Rxg4?? and 23. Qb3, now the Black queen becomes overloaded as it is now needed to defend the pinned rook which will come under multiple attacks, but is also the only piece stopping g4. I thought black's plan was instead to play 23. ...Qe6, but now after 24. g4 fxg4 25. fxg4 Bxg4 white can win (among other ways) with the direct 26. Nxg4 Qxg4 (now defending the rook from the side) 27. Rac1 Rc8 28. h3!! and the black queen must either unpin the bishop (thereby allowing Bf1, or undefend the rook hanging at c4. The only defensive try would be 28. ...Qe6, but that loses to 29. Bf1 R4c6 30. Rxc6 Rxc6 31. Qxe6+ Rxe6 32. Bc4! Kf7 33. Bxa7 and white will have an easy endgame win being an exchange up with a hard-to-stop outside passed pawn as well, while black's position remains tied in knots.

Now that I look at it, that was an 11-move-long line, so I guess it wasn't necessarily so obvious over the board.

Jul-20-13  Jamboree: Oops, a big typo messes up my comment. Right at the beginning, I meant to say 22. ... Rxc4?? twice, not the physically impossible "22. ... Rxg4??". Sorry about the confusion!

Change the first line to read:

"22. ... Rxc4?? just seems to lose a piece..."

Jul-20-13  fgh: More like China-China, lol.

Very instructive blunder by Robson, involving both <PINS AGAINST THE KING> and <TRAPPED ON THE EDGE OF THE BOARD>.
