Aug-20-12  Xeroxx: The opening was only the lull before the storm.
May-23-19  kungfufighter888: Back Rank Danger for Black king !!!!!!!!!!!!!
May-23-19  dhruv munjal: On 4th move black opened e file by taking bishop on f4 and actually that file took the end by back rank mate threat !! So the game got into advantage in 4 moves !!
That's better than 4 move checkmate !!!!!!!
May-23-19  goodevans: <dhruv munjal> Yep. Can't fault that logic.
May-23-19  smendel: I personally would really prefer to have great games than games by club players with names like 'Rose' or 'White'. This game isn't likely to be featured in any chess volumes soon, with black simply missing b3.
May-23-19  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Black had a great attack and could at least draw, but messed it all up with 27...b5??

which traps his own rook (+8,50). Instead 27...a4

maintains the queenside pressure with silicon giving black slight advantage (-0,20).

May-23-19  Ironmanth: Tricky maneuvers! Thanks, chessgames. Happy holiday to all. Play hard, play often, all!

May-23-19  Cheapo by the Dozen: Per the engine, Black's fatal mistake was on move 27, when he allowed his rook to be trapped. Makes sense to me.

  Breunor: Right Cheapo, co outer says black is ok if he plays 27 .... a4 which prevents b3.

But it still looks to me that black's knight is stuck. I guess he can hold on for a draw?
