Feb-03-09  znprdx: correction of my post while this game was in process: Feb-01-09 no Rybka 25.Rh4 does not deserve a “? “After Nh7 26.Rx[N]h7 and the Bishop cannot re-capture so Kx[R] h7 and 0-0-0 gets the brilliancy prize. I was actually looking at Rh4 when LDP played it... 42:02 | 0:22:24

addendum: What a tragic irony that the post mortem shows that 0-0-0 could have been played as early as move 24. This game is a gem as it represents the intangible nuances of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, proving once again that there is an element of “luck” in that winning vs. losing somehow seems momentarily at least, somehow beyond the players themselves....

Feb-08-09  WhiteRook48: is the tournament over?
