Mar-18-05  iron maiden: Finish? Black wins a piece.
Mar-18-05  Whitehat1963: O.K., so it's confirmed yet again: I'm a blind chess idiot!
Sep-26-09  Gambit All: By just the 12th move Alekhine, playing black, has developed 4 pieces to Steiner's 2 and has an advanced center pawn while Steiner has no center pawns left.

  profK: In hindsight Bogo's 6.Bg5 is lots better.

  Mateo: According to Stockfish, White was winning after 21.Kxb2! instead of 21.Bxb5? If 21...Qxh1 22.Bh3 Qe4 23.Qxg7 Rhe8, White has a winning position although it is still tricky.
