What does the comment after

27 ... Qg3! 28.Ne1 Nh5?!

The idea is obvious, but 28 ... Ne2 ! 29 f4 Qxe3 30 Nxe2 Bf6! -/+ is more forceful. ?

How does it differ from strong?

Re: The English Language

"we should not embrace Plan B (10 points), although objectively it doesn't change the position's evaluation too much."
Here agaim objectively means that the evaluation could be changed by some other factors?

Preparing Chess books

Hi.
What's a good software for publishing chess diagrams? ChessPad was reconmended by some forumees before (aqnd it truly produces stylistic diagrams), but it apparently doesn't include coordinates (needed by less experiencced players).

Thanks in advance

Re: The English Language

If Black succeeded in exchanging the a­ pawns and the queens, then he would be able to reduce White's advantage. 22 lIxd5 ? �xd5+ 23 �f3 �xf3+ 24 �xf3 a6 would not be much for White.
What does be much for White mean?

Re: The English Language

Any difference between
his position is still far from enviable.
and
his position is still not enviable.
and
his position is still not enviable at all.

It means that it is impossible for all of Black's moves, and subsequent continuations, (presumably from a given position) to be good.
Means it is logical that they can't be all good?

Any difference between

and
he had accurately evaluated the re­sulting endgame with his advantage?

Re: The English Language

What does As a matter of fact mean in:
Thus, in this position White can claim a slight plus, as he controls more space and his pieces are nicely centralized. As a matter of fact. Black's last move was more or less forced, since White was ready for a central e5 breakthrough.
