|May-01-08|| ||apexin: what happens after 28.Kxd6?|
|May-01-08|| ||jokerman: afther 28...Kxd6 white plays 29.exd7 and now the black night is pinned. afther 29.exd7 Qxd7? 30. Bf3 Kc5 31. Rd1 Rd8 32. Bxd5 Qxd5 33. Qc3+ and the black queen is lost or if black now plays Qc4 white plays 34. Qxc4+ Kxc4 and white now wins the rook. i'm not shure if this is the best line, but i would play it... i will check with engine, next post :0)|
|May-01-08|| ||jokerman: deep shredder plays 29. exd7 Qe7 30. Rh6+ f6 31. Bf3 and resigns, because he says best move is Qe3 and afther 31. Bf3 Qe3 32. Qxe3 Nxe3 33. Bxa8 white has best position and a easely won game. hope that explains enough "apexin" greatings jokerman.|
|May-01-08|| ||apexin: thank you that explains everything.|
|May-01-08|| ||Whitehat1963: What is the terrible consequence of 19...exf5?|
|May-01-08|| ||kevin86: It looks like Mr Nunn rapped the computer's fingers with a ruler.|
If Mr. Nunn formed a flying team,they would be called the "Blue Nunns" or the "Flying Nunns"
How about the confusion if Mr. Nunn had become a priest.
The game is noteworthy in that the winner opens up the position for the major pieces to attack the king- and how he did it.

|May-01-08|| ||vescovifan: <whitehat> 20. Nxd5 wins the piece back at least and doubles the pawns, the black king is exposed to Re1+ ideas, I was too lazy to look at some computer variation but looks like white is much better.|
|May-01-08|| ||jadedpawn: I think it's interesting how f5 becomes weak for black after he posts a piece on d5 overloading the e6 pawn.|
|May-01-08|| ||zanza: Beautiful game|
|May-01-08|| ||Knight to f6: Great game! It took TASC a lot of time to accept that knight sac (which was offered at least three times in different situations) and when it finally did Nunn pinned the computer to the floor--or, at least, its knight.|
|May-02-08|| ||Whitehat1963: What happens on 25. Qh6?|
|Jun-02-08|| ||patzer2: The computer makes a positional error with 17...d5? and Nunn rapidly exploits the error. After the practically forced
18. exd5 Bxd5, Nunn's nimble 19. Nf5! decisively exploits the now helpless Black King position.|
