Jul-05-05  Knight13: 14. Nxd4! a good move. It gave Black doubled f-pawns... Which is weak.

This would be an instructive game of "The weakness of doubled panws." Doubled f-pawns really killed Black in the endgame. It's like Black's a pawn down.

  beatgiant: I think 16...h6? is wrong, further weakening the kingside pawn structure. How about 16...Ne4 instead? For example, 16...Ne4 17. Qxd8 Ng3+ 18. Kg1 Rxd8 19. Rf3 Nf5, etc. and Black avoids the doubled pawns.
Jun-18-08  dRr0x0rZZ: Bird should certainly get credit for finding that adorable zwischenzug at the end!
