Feb-21-20  chesslearner1991: Brilliant game.

  al wazir: I don't understand 27. Be4, allowing 27...Rxc1 28. Qxc1 Nd3, instead of 27. Rxc8 Rxc8 28. Be4.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Check It Out: I thought 22...f3 was the move, interference.
Feb-21-20  Walter Glattke: Also think for 22.-f3 with 23.Bxf3 Nxf3+ 24.gxf3 Qg6+ 25.Kh1 Bh3 26.N5g3 hxg3 27.Nxg3 Ng5 28.Rc3 bxa4 wins for black. White should play 28.Rxc8 instead of 28.Be4. 31.-f3 is double threatening, of Qg2# or 32.Qg1 Qxd2.

Feb-21-20  Walter Glattke: "ducks it hive 24.h4" I tested that with 24.-Nh3+ 25.Kg2 (25.Kh1 Nxf2+) f3+ 26.Bxf3 (26.Kg3 Qf4#) Nxf3 27.Qxf3 (27.Rf2!? Qg6+ 28.Ng5 Qxg5+ 29.Kh1 Nxf2#) 27.-Rxf3 28.Kxf3 Qf4+ and slaughtering. Of Course 27.Rxc8 instead 27.Be4, not move 28.

  chrisowen: That is it from today heur?
Feb-21-20  Everett: 18.fxe5 doesn’t look best to me here
Feb-21-20  King.Arthur.Brazil: I went wrong with 22...f3 and so on. Following after 22...h3, 23... ♘g5! explains the good idea, remove the ♘ defensor. Also, with 26... Tac8! make the white ♕ become overcharged. Then, I looked t the possibility of white try to escape with 27. ♖xc8 ♖xc8 28. ♗e4.... But it didn't work too: 28...f3 29. ♗xf3 ♖f8 30. ♘g3 ♘xf3... or 29. ♘g3 ♘g4 30. ♕xf3 ♖f8 and 30.♗d4 ♗g2+ 31. ♔g1 ♖c1.... There's not much to do. Game over.

  chrisowen: Cheerio ja ne4xf2.
Premium Chessgames Member
  chrisowen: Effective la.
Premium Chessgames Member
  paavoh: I went with the 22.- f3 idea. Somehow seemed more obvious?!
Feb-21-20  newzild: Got the first move, but expected 23...f3 to trap the Bh5.
Premium Chessgames Member
  agb2002: After considering both f3 and h3 I haven't found anything clearly decisive but I'd probably play 22... f3 23.Bxf3 Ng5 or 23... Nxf3+ 24.gxf3 Bxb2.
Premium Chessgames Member
  ajk68: I went with h6. I saw the 22...f3 23. Bxf3 line didn't work. Can't say I got all the possible continuations from h6.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Breunor: Misery loves company, I went for f3 also.

But Stockfish prefers a different move from h3 or f3 (running for a minute):

1) -2.92 (22 ply) 22...Ng5 23.Rc3 Nxe4 24.Rxe4 Bf5 25.Rb4 Qg5 26.axb5 axb5 27.h3 Rfc8 28.Rxc8+ Rxc8 29.Bg4 Nxg4 30.hxg4 Bxg4 31.Qd2 Be5 32.Bd4 h3 33.Bxe5 dxe5 34.d6 hxg2 35.Qxg2

h3 is a good enough move to win:

1) -2.36 (21 ply) 23.g4 Bxg4 24.Bxg4 Qg6 25.Kh1 Nxg4 26.Qf3 Nxf2+ 27.Nxf2 Ng5 28.Qd3 Qxd3 29.Nxd3 Rf5 30.Rcd1 bxa4 31.Ra1 Raf8 32.Rxa4 f3 33.Rxa6 Rxd5 34.Rd1 Rd4 35.Raa1 Rh4

f3 doesn't get the job done:
1) -0.51 (20 ply) 23.Bxf3 Ng5 24.Nxg5 Qxg5 25.Kh1 h3 26.Bg3 hxg2+ 27.Bxg2 Bg4 28.Qb3 bxa4 29.Qe3 Qg6 30.Rc7 Bf3 31.Bxf3 Nxf3 32.Qe6+ Qxe6 33.Rxe6 Nd4 34.Re1 Nb5 35.Rc6 Bxb2 36.Ne3 Be5

al wazir, computer agrees with you on 27 Be4:

1) -9.45 (22 ply) 27...f3 28.Ng3 Ng4 29.Kg1 Rxc1 30.Qxc1 Qh4 31.Qd2 Bg2 32.Nf1 Qh3 33.Bxf3 Bxf1 34.Bb6 Rxf3 35.Qc2 Bc4 36.Qg2 Qxg2+ 37.Kxg2 Bxd5 38.Kg1 Be5 39.Rxe5 Nxe5 40.Bc7 bxa4 41.Bxd6

Best is
1) -2.31 (24 ply) 27.Rxc8 Rxc8 28.axb5 axb5 29.Nd2 Rc1 30.Qe2 Nxf3 31.Qxf3 Rxe1+ 32.Bxe1 Bd4 33.Bf2 Bxf2 34.Qxf2 Qxd5+ 35.Qf3 Qxd2 36.Qxh3 Qc1+ 37.Kg2 Qxb2+ 38.Kf1 Qc1+ 39.Kg2 Qc2+ 40.Kg1 Qd1+ 41.Kf2 Qd4+ 42.Kg2 Qe4+ 43.Kf2 Qe3+ 44.Qxe3 fxe3+ 45.Kf1 d5 46.Ke2

but this is still a tough position

Everett, computer agrees with you also. Best 18th move:

1) +0.54 (19 ply) 18.Bh5 Qe7 19.h3 exf4 20.Bxf4 Ne5 21.Kh1 Qf6 22.Ne2 Bd7 23.Nd4 Ng5 24.Bxg5 Qxg5 25.Ne6 Bxe6 26.dxe6 f4 27.Nh2 Qe7 28.Nf3 Qxe6 29.Nxh4

After fxe5, we have:

1) -0.10 (22 ply) 18...Nxe5 19.Bh5 Qe7 20.Ne2 Nf6 21.Nf4 Nfg4 22.h3 Nxe3 23.Nxe3 Bh6 24.Ne6 Bxe6 25.dxe6 Bxe3+ 26.Rxe3 Qa7 27.Rc3 f4 28.Qxd6 fxe3 29.Qxe5 e2+ 30.Kh2 e1=R 31.Qxe1 Qf2 32.Qxf2 Rxf2
