Jan-18-16  manorchy: Potentially diverting the game away from serene waters, silicon suggests the somewhat risky intermezzo chain <31. Ba7!? e3 32. Re6!?>

Quite an interesting attempt to avoid the resulting liquidation of forces after the immediate <31.Rxa6>.

Jan-18-16  kamagong24: 31. Ba7 does look interesting, and it is hard to find on OTB game at least for me, wow!
Jan-18-16  iking: a pawn up but a dead drawn position ...
Jan-19-16  Atking: <manorchy> 31.Ba7!? e3 32.Re6!!? seems really beautiful but I fail to understand it completely. 32...fxR 33.Bxe6+ Kh8 34.BxN Rc8 and then...? I surely miss something.
