This is strategically lost. I resign. Well played. :clap: 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 :rolleyes:

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 does seem to involve a lot of piece shuffling for black and allows white a chance for a kside attack.

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 :rolleyes:

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.

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.)

I must admit that I would have preferred to make White demonstrate the win.

I find that playing on in lost positions in CC (trying to find the move that offers the most very long-term resistance even though it's just a choice between one awful position and another) can be extremely time-consuming and there are other things I would rather be doing with that time (including my other games in the same tournaments). If I think there is any real chance of saving I will keep going, but in freestyle once you get a passive and clearly lost position you don't get out of it.

Besides, I'm a showoff!

What does "freestyle" mean exactly?

It means you can use anything. Get Kramnik on the phone, analyse positions with your mates, ask for public advice, use databases ... but most importantly, unlimited use of computers for analysis help.

It's quite possible that Garvin himself would be able to beat me at correspondence time limits in that position, but if I was just playing a human I would play on. I am actually playing Garvin + Rybka, which is an exceptionally strong program. I'm at something of a handicap in these freestyle things because my own version of Fritz is ancient - updating it is not high on my list of financial priorities!

Yes, I downloaded it some time ago but was far too stupid to be able to get it working effectively as an analysis engine for positions. Basically I got to the stage where I could play against it (even that was a hassle) but I really struggled to acheive much beyond that.

Quite an interesting game: positional exchange sac, then using the K actively to help the Q-side Ps as per Fischer vs Petrosian, Candidates, Yugoslavia, 1959 (http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1044100). So you play the Frog well from both sides ;)
