Dec-22-10  Bons92: I think that the notation is incorrect..
Dec-22-10  WhiteRook48: 43 Rxc3 Rd1+ 44 Ne1 Rxe1+ 45 Kg2 Nf4+...
no, that favors white
Dec-22-10  WhiteRook48: arrgh! I calculated incorrectly, 46 Kg3 Rg1+ 47 Rg2 Rxg2#
Oct-09-11  Robeson: It was better to play 16. Be3, when Black has some comp for the pawn but White's better. The problem with 16.dxe5?! is that the open d-file allows Black to soon invade with 18...Qd3, with good comp for the pawn.
