Sample text

Ixd5 but the extra pawn and Black's exposed king in the resulting queen against double-rook ending should give a near-decisive advantage. 30 ... tf8 31 Wh8+ c4f7 32 Ixe6+ I suppose this could be described as youthful enthusiasm or inexperienced foolishness. White had to take the draw here with 32 YWh7+. After the text only Black has winning chances. 32 ... Y'xe6 33 Wh7+ Uf8 34 =xe6 Txe6 35 h4 Although White has material equality with queen and three pawns for two rooks and a bishop the pawns are too far back to cause a real threat and as soon as Black co-ordinates they will be in real danger of being picked off.

28 h4 Wg6 29 YWe2 A better try was 29 *lg4 but Black's position must be preferred. However it would have been difficult to choose between 29... gxh4. gxh4 30 lWxh4 Xad8 is the most accurate. 29 ... Aac8 30 hxg5 hxg5 31 Zdl The position was becoming less and less appetising but this leads to a very swift conclusion. Some might say mercifully swift but after 31 Vig4 (31 Ad2 g4 is less testing) Black still has some work to do. 31 ...

B8 18 f4 lc4 19 la7 White takes the opportunity to misplace Black's rook before playing the bishop to d4. I did consider 19 1xc4 Wxc4 20 43b6 Wxe4 21 g5 but if you believe in this you probably believe in Father Christmas as well. 19 ... 2a8 20 I&d4 b7? Too slow. e5 21 A xc4 Wxc4 22 OMb6 Oxb6 23 lxb6 Ee8 when Black has a good game. In such a sharp position, this error has serious consequences. 21 g5 Natural and good, because the alternative 21 l xc4 Yxc4 22 Oa5 YWb5 23 1xb7 Vxb7 was not very tempting.
