DATMO day 6 Video - part 2

IM Mashafizul (left) and WGM Li Roufan (right) at the end of their game ( 1-0 : Li Roufan win). Behind Mas is his trainer - GM Ian Rogers .

Below is the critical position and the post morterm video of IM Mashafizul lost against WGM Li Roufan . Mas had a winning position but due to time trouble he miss several chance to win the game and lost the game at the end.

WGM Li Roufan (2425) - IM Mashafizul Helmi (2386)
DATMO 2008 (Round 9), 23.08.2008

This is the critical position I watch during the game. I guess Mas probably had a winning advantage here but the passed pawn on e6 and white double rook’s certainly make the task harder for black! At home I "asked" my friend Mr.Fritz what he think about the position. He reply with..

1...Rxg5+ 2.fxg5 Bb7 3.e7 Qh1+ 4.Kf2 Qg2+ 5.Ke3 Qxg5+ and black should win!
