  Zhbugnoimt: Wow!! Amazing game by Komodo. c5! Clears the c4 square, great move, and I also loved f4!! Only computers can see that crazy be1 maneuver
Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: Wow is right. Stockfish was stronger overall, but Komodo produced some otherworldly games.

<Zhbugnoimt> really nails that the two crucial moves c5 and f4 somehow mirror and weave together-24 moves apart!- to break a solid looking defence by Critter.

  Zhbugnoimt: c5!! has two purposes: 1. To clear c4'for the knight. 2. To stop black's ...Nb7-c5
Premium Chessgames Member
  Zhbugnoimt: In fact, the correct move for black was not 15...dxc5, allowing white to have all the play, and limiting black's activity, but 15...Nb7! getting the black knight to the strong c5 square.
