    This is strategically lost. I resign. Well played.

    (This line is supposed to be more than OK for black but if so I am not good enough to demonstrate it against strong opposition. Too much fiddling about. As usual. )

    Thanks for the game. Surprised to see you resign though. I was starting to struggle to work out exactly how to take advantage of all these pieces on the kside

    I think the win is still many moves away (no immediate smash).

    On move 18, I thought 18. ... h6 is stronger, as it prevents h6 and stops pieces getting to g5. It does leave a 'nasty' hole on g6, but that can be protected with the Ne7 and Qe8.

    (This line is supposed to be more than OK for black but if so I am not good enough to demonstrate it against strong opposition. Too much fiddling about. As usual. )
    This line does seem to involve a lot of piece shuffling for black and allows white a chance for a kside attack.

    I was surprised too at the resignation. Can you give a rough outline of the winning plan, Kevin?

    By this line you mean the French, right?

    I found too many lines that involved (eventually) getting your queen to g5, shifting rook to e3 and breaking through with g4. That long-term idea was virtually everywhere and in any line where I could stop it there were breakthroughs on the queenside or unsolvable problems defending my e-pawn. There is indeed no immediate smash but every line I looked at long-term was going into +2 or worse well down the track and it wasn't like you had to play moves at precisely the right time to win it. I just couldn't be bothered playing on since my only hope was a virus destroying every copy of Rybka on the planet.

    On move 18, I thought 18. ... h6 is stronger, as it prevents h6 and stops pieces getting to g5. It does leave a 'nasty' hole on g6, but that can be protected with the Ne7 and Qe8.
    My source indicates that allowing h6 is no problem and even calls the h5-h6 idea "primitive" but it is a question of correct defence (which I wasn't up to). Had I actually read the notes it gives for 16.h5 as opposed to your 17.h5 I might have grasped a better defensive plan! (In those notes Black puts a knight on g8 and keeps one rook on the kingside.)
