Nov-19-03  vlatko: 46 ... Rb1+ 47 Kg2 Ne3+ wins the rook. Is this correct?
Mar-05-08  smarterthanbobby: vlatko thanks for your post iNDEED
the rook is won with your line...
great vision you must be a fine chess
player... Yes it does there is nothing
that can stop that from happening...
I don't think this was timed as well
so it was A BLUNDER for him to miss
that move as well...
Apr-04-08  Knight13: Exactly the way Bird would play the Bird's Opening!

32. Bxa6 Rxa6 33. cxb5 is better for White, IMO.

Apr-04-08  mistreaver: I suppose you mean 33 cxb4.
But it seems that black wins queen with 33. Rg6
Apr-04-08  Knight13: <mistreaver: I suppose you mean 33 cxb4. But it seems that black wins queen with 33. Rg6> I miss-looked. I thought the queen was already on d1 when I thought of Bxa6!! Embarassing.
