  barb: Wow! Fearless aggression by Helms.
Dec-09-09  GMMandetowitch: Great game,but actually black could have done the mating combination without taking the knight on e8.What can we infer from this? Number 1- Helms didn't see the combination right the way(which is quite unlikely to happen,since it was an easy mate-in-five)

Number 2-Helms took the knight on e8 just saying to Marshall "Ok,I eat your knight on e8,your king is fixed in a box anyway,no way to scape.But if you want,you can still try Bf4 to survive one more move."
