  Chessical: Szen achieves equality out of the opening, and then outplays Newham who seems at a loss as to how to improve his position. <22.b5> seems better; whilst <31.Rxf4?> simply leaves Newham with a lost ending.
Dec-18-08  just a kid: Poorly played opening for White.White was trailing at this point so it is better to complicate things up with 3.Nc3,3.Nd2,or 3.e5
Jul-22-09  Knight13: 16. g3 is better. Then Nd1-e3.

  zanzibar: The trouble with <CG> not injecting correction comments into the discussion stream is that comments can lose their context.

In this case <CG> changed Black's 30th move.

I have an old snapshot where it was 30...Bxf4 in which case 31.Rxf4 is bad enough to merit a comment...

Like Chessical's.

But <CG> silently changed the score to have Black's 30th become 30...Rxf4, in which case 31.Rxf4 is engine-best.

It happens that Staunton's TB gives 30...Rxf4, so the correction is good.

But notice should be provided in the comment stream, I strongly believe.

Yeah, but does anyone really care about this game? Probably not.
