Absolutely comprehensive analysis of the last phase of the game. One thing about Rb6!! is that it is yet another waiting move, as was pointed out. Apparently, black missed not one, but two (and who know how many more) waiting moves in Re7 and Rb6. The summation at the end is particularly apt, that initiative chess isn't always best. This is something that master level players recognize, regardless of their individual styles. I should complement you for handling the endgame in stellar fashion, c6! was the icing in the cake. And I will at least check myself before making sacrilegious pawn island moves. But then, the middle game and endgame are two different beasts. Chess is hard.

Hi Folks - this replaces a lecture that we withdrew due to a mixup about player identification. Episode XXXIII of "Learn From Your Fellow Amateurs" will be remade, and the new version will be published shortly. Thank you for your understanding.
