This game is difficult to comment.Black had advantage,did well searching the win chances,but at the finish victory has come to whites!Let`s see how it had happened.
We have rather popular line of English opening. White have 2 plans: to trade knights with idea of d5.Or 10.Ne3-as it did Garry Kasparov playing vs N.Short in Linares1990. Plan n2 seems more attractive for me as black has difficulties to find game plan in general,no static centrum, f7-f5 line not useful.
Important moment now.White are giving centrum,hoping to make pressure on it later.Rather traditional plan:12.0-0 Bxg2 13.Kxg2 0-0 14.Be3 f5 15.f3-simple.
White continue their risky plan. Possible here 17.f3 and if 17....-fxe4 18.fxe4 Rxf1 19.Qxf1 d5 20. Rd1 d4 21.Nb1 blockading the pawn. Also brave and interesting simply: 17. .. -d5!
First impre ssion says that white have better.But how they must continue ?While task for blacks is more easy.
Typicall computer `s move! I doubt if a human would decide such a game. Nevertheless black can find interesting game against white king through the field f3.
White`s answer not less original:).Whites see the danger about f3 and try to eliminate it.But they dont pay attention to a double pawns going in the centrum!Thus the fight begins about d5-pawn.If black will suceed to push it-they willwin!
This mistake of black`s is very clear! They had a chance now to push d4! 29..-Qc5! 30.Qb2 d4-+.
Black still trying to promote d4,but now it is too late.Analyzing far variations i failed to find clear win for blacks here now.
White suceeded to do this in time.
This pawn gives some chances for white contragame
Of course f6 pawn is like a splinter in black`s..hmmm.... body
Difficult to believe-but black are going to a lost endgame step by step.Again we must see the conclusion: the positional apprehension of endgame is what the programs lack!!!
My last remark explains this result the best! Game was complicated.Black had missed their chance-remember d4pawn pushing moment.Then white managed better to realize the endgame and poor endgame understanding didnt let ChessGenius at least to draw the game. Gambit-Tiger has important point.
