  notyetagm: J Xiong vs C Aravindh, 2016

A *tremendous* win for Xiong in a crazy position. Jeffery walked a tightrope in this game.

I would lose this position from either side.

Aug-15-16  siggemannen: cool game
Aug-19-16  Ayaend: Yes nice battle and like the ability that White are showing!
Aug-19-16  epistle: This luck will end with Master B2
Aug-20-16  alkabiades: black has to win this one. he got some wining positionts. what a miss
Aug-20-16  gokusano: Young Jeffrey will have his mind and hands full in todays game he may not be able to handle.
Aug-20-16  patzer2: According to the computer, Black could have forced the draw with 32... Red8! when play might continue 33. Rhg1 (33. Qe2 c1=Q+ 34. Nxc1 Ra2+ 35. Kxb1 Rxe2 36. Bh6 Rxe4 37. Rhg1+ Kh8 38. Bg7+ Kg8 39. Bh6+ Kh8 40. Bg7+ Kg8 41. Bh6+) 33... Rxd2 34. Bh6+ Rg2 35. Rxg2+Kh8 36. Bg7+ Kg8 37. Bh6+ Kh8 38. Bg7+ = with a draw by perpetual.

However, White can deny the 32...Red8! drawing opportunity by playing the strong defensive move 32. Nd3 (+3.15 @ 28 depth, Komodo 10).

Earlier, the computer indicates Black missed an opportunity to gain a strong advantage by not playing 20...a4! 21. g3 c4 (-1.47 @ 30 depth, Komodo 10).

P.S.: In any event, this is an instructive game to play over as it involves a lot of moves combining attack and defense for both sides.

Black might as well have tried <43...Qxd5>. You never know, you know. And even if the worst happens, <44.Qb8+ Qg8 45.Bg7#> would have been an appropriate ending to the game.
