Well, even if he swapped queens, it still looked good. E.g. 22... Qxg2 23. Kxg2 Rh6 24. e4 g5 and white looks better. He's a pawn up, and has had a game or two where he's looked better but his opponent has stumbled into something that worked. I imagine he's hesitant to create a material imbalance, and being a pawn up, is just trying to grind it out.Jon D'Souza-Eva wrote:Interesting position, Peter seems to be winning material. 22.Qg2 surprised me, I was expecting exf6 or Bxh5 and was trying to decide which one I'd plump for if I was White and then Peter played something completely different!Alex Holowczak wrote:He's on the live boards this afternoon:

22. Qg2 was met with Qc8, so he can take the R now if he wants...
Edit: He didn't; he played g4 instead. Rook looks trapped, he can win a pawn on c6, and he has a better position. It's looking good.
