Jul-29-04  Melvin04: This game was played when Alexander was 13 years old. Good game.
Sep-17-04  Knight13: 28...gxf5 then 29. Qg5+ Qg7 30 Ne7 wins the rook, but I suggest move the king. But if 28... Qxf6?? 29. Ne7+ wins the queen.
Sep-18-04  beatgiant: <28...gxf5 then 29. Qg5+ Qg7 30 Ne7 wins the rook>

Actually, if 29. ♕g5+ ♔h8 . So White should play the immediate 29. ♘e7+ instead of 29. ♕g5+ .

Sep-30-04  Knight13: 28... QxR 29. Kt-K7ch and forks the Queen. 26... Kt-KB5?, this is a bad move caused it, I bet. I would say 28... RxKt 29. RxQ would give Black a rook and white a Queen. But the Fork I showed is worse. White has a Queen and a Knight. Any way is worse, but that's more like Resigning.
Dec-31-04  beatgiant: <Knight13>:
<26... Kt-KB5?, this is a bad move caused it, I bet.> He's already losing by move 26. White threatened Qxh6, and 26...Kg7 27. Qe5 also looks devastating.

For some time, Black's kingside has been weak and his knight on h6 out of play. Maybe 17...Nf5 can improve his position.

Sep-19-05  lopium: This man got Knocked Out.
