  Jim Bartle: 31. Be7 is a great-looking move, effectively cutting off the black queen and the h6 rook from the defense of the king. Nunn then moves in for the kill quickly.
Dec-23-04  SlyTheGoblin: Nunn played well, cut the board into two. I dun like Black's 16 .. e5. I dunno if 27. .. Nc7, sacrifing pawn at f6 would help. By doing so, black would try to control back the center, with Qe7 and Re8 subsequently.
