Jul-27-13  Nezhmetdinov: 31 c4! the star move here.
Jul-27-13  Everett: < Nezhmetdinov: 31 c4! the star move here.>

It really is. Thank you for pointing this out.

At first I thought, What is Black doing with 26..Re7? Isn't he inviting to exchange DSBs, losing his two B potential a pawn down?

But the follow-up shows that Andreiken is trying to force a draw based on the lack of DSB squares for Adams. BOC with Rs shows up on the board, and that 31.c4! gives a beautiful base of operations for Adams bishop. Real beauty in my eyes (I'm easy to please with these positional ideas).

Jul-28-13  notyetagm: <Nezhmetdinov: 31 c4! the star move here.>

Looks just like Giri's 9 ... c7-c5! against Wang Hao, using a <FORCING MOVE> to <GAIN TEMPO> to create <LUFT> for an otherwise <TRAPPED PIECE>.

Jul-29-13  Ulhumbrus: After 16...Bc8 White has a lead in development. This suggests the opening of lines by 17 e6

After 60 g6+! Andreikin cannot take the pawn bwcause on 60...Kxg6 61 Rf6+ forks the black king and bishop. The only way for Blac's king to defend the bishop is to go to g7 but on 61...Kg7 the discovered check 62 Rg1+ wins Black's rook

only an exchange up, and Black can play for the irritating Bb3. White still wins by bring his K over, using mate threats to keep the B hopping. Then he can return the exchange and surely collect Black's pawns from behind.

ROFLMAO

I have a blind spot in chess understanding about <INTERPOSING>, so I make myself annotate almost *every* neat example I see. That's helped me a lot with my problem. :-)

  ajk68: What is the point of 64. Kh3, ?
Aug-09-13  waustad: My guess is he's going to prevent a pin by making sure the rook can't gat behind the king. Then he can chase the bishop by going to h8.
Aug-08-16  turcoknight: Why not 29..Rd3 check first and 30..Kxf6 next?
