Subject: THE BIG GAME 9 Answer From: John Fairbairn <JF@harrowgo.demon.co.uk> Date: Mon, 19 May 1997 08:35:13 +0100
The pro-looking moves, which I don't think anyone got, were, first, White 102. f7.
The commentary says White cannot win if he plays c5 instead because after b5, b8, f5, f6, g5, g6, h5, h6, j5, j6, k6, k7 Black still has a cutting point at L7.
Black's "pro" move was 103. o3 to secure the lower side territory (what, you thought it was secure already?). But the commentary said it was better (bigger) to play o6, the move I imagine we amateurs would play.
