  tpstar: <keypusher> No, I'm teaching them to play against it. =)

This is our weekly Mystery Game feature where I give them the gamescore for a GM game (without knowing the players), then they annotate it and find similar games. I clean up their notes, include Fritz analysis, and post the finished product for future reference. Game Collection: Instructive Games

Note 34 ... Bxc6?? 35. Qb4+.
