Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-17-23  Delboy: What was going on here? As impressive as black's minor pieces looked, I can't help thinking white could have survived the complications and won. Black even missed a mate in 1 on move 29, so I assume there was a hectic time scramble

  Sally Simpson: The game seems to have spun around at the critical position here. (White to play) One player does not want to lose the exchange - the other player is only too happy to give up the exchange.

White refused to give up their passive h1 Rook and go for 25.Bxd4 getting rid of the d4 Knight. Instead White played 25.Rh2.

Black then showed how to use Rooks and played 25...Rxe3 getting their passive a8 Rook into the game with a check.

The missed mate in one. Possible time trouble but looking at the position (Black to play)

The first instinct is 29....Re3+ I think the original plan Black had in mind was 30. Kd2 Re2+ 31.Kxd1 Rxa2+ and then Rxh2.) White did not play 31.Kxd1 and it was then Black spotted the checkmate.

In view of all the complications, my opinion is that White was in zeitnot; Doroshkevich was quite a strong player and it is difficult for me to believe that he would fail to apprehend the critical point of the position. Once the pride and joy of Black's position comes off, his attacking chances are all but gone and the knight on b2 becomes a liability.

  Sally Simpson: Hi perfidious,

I was a bit hesitant to go for time trouble as we are on move 25. Of course T.T. is not unheard of in the 20's. Perhaps just one of those dry days when nothing gels and if you happen to get paired with someone who is having a hot day then you are in trouble.

I'm here to tell you, you never witnessed any of my games from roughly 1975 onwards; before that, I always played with almost youthful Anand-like speed (if with nowhere near as much skill), but somehow that fateful summer, switched to a far more deliberate mode, such that I could easily get into zeitnot by move 20-25.

Two things from the only US Open I ever played: I won a game on time at move 19, an even more difficult thing to do than one might believe, as the time check was 50 moves in 2.5 hours. The other oddity was that in my last round game, with nothing on the line, I made 20 moves in a minute to pull that one out of the fire.
