sharp position ?

Post by xr_a_y » Sun May 17, 2020 3:34 pm

Just find myself in this position, which is drawish but looks very sharp.

[d] r2q3r/3n1k1p/2p1pn2/1p1p2P1/5P2/bPNBPQ2/1BPP4/2KR3R b - - 0 17

It feels quite hard not to blunder here !

7 "forced" moves (second best ones are horrible), then here

[d] 7r/3n1k1p/2p1pn2/1p1p2P1/5P2/1P1BPQ2/r1PP4/qNKR3R w - - 3 21

only 2 moves for white, and again 7 "forced" moves until

[d] 7r/3n1k1p/2p1p3/1p1pqPP1/4n3/1P1BPQ2/r1PPK3/5R1R w - - 1 25

where fxe6 leads to other forced sequences, until

[d] 4q2r/2kn1R1p/2p4R/1p1p2P1/4n1Q1/1P1BP3/r1PPK3/8 w - - 6 29

So after 25., only Bxe4 seems to calm down the situation a little.

[d] 7r/3n1k1p/2p1p3/1p1p1PP1/4q3/1P2PQ2/r1PPK3/5R1R w - - 0 26
