    One thing is my crappy games getting their story corrupted, but this is too much!

    it looks so simple and effortless... like a fist that just keeps squeezing tighter....

    I don't know much anything about the french, but the maneuvering with the threat of f5 was neat. at first I didn't get why black didn't just take Bxa6, but that would give white a passed duo, right? the black rook can't go to g7, and Kh8 is just too slow (or is it even a mate after white's dark bishop goes somewhere between d4-h8 diag?), so there's no counterplay on the open g-file I think.

    the a6 itself I don't get at all though.

    I'm a little unsure why the game ended. is it because the d-pawn drops (and all hell breaks loose)?

    rybka shows 1.71 advantage for white but I don't understand it. black's position seems really cramped that's for sure, but he can save the d pawn with Bb2 and has a passed a pawn himself. I think black should've better waited for white to prove his advantage here, it seems too early to resign.
