Jul-02-02  mprchess: why would white have resigned? it was definitely a win by white with 27... Kh8 28. Qxf6+ Kh7 29. Qg6# or 27... Kf8 28. Qxg6+ Ke8 29. Qf7#

  Honza Cervenka: The result is certainly incorrect. White won this game. And white was not Amador C. Rodriguez but Orestes Rodriguez Vargas. See http://members.tripod.com/~polerio/...

  timems: chessgames.com you still list the result of this game as 0-1 in your description of the game under the names of the players. The site that <Honza Cervenka> gave was no longer available when I played through the game so I can not say if he gave the correct information about the name of the player with the white pieces but Max Euwe and Walter Meiden give the name of the player playing white as Ernesto Rodriguez from Peru in their book "Chess Master vs. Chess Master" copyright 1977 published by David McKay Company, Inc. New York.

  timems: chessgames.com I forgot to mention that the name of the player (of the white pieces) is different in header by which you look up the game and the line you click on to view the game.

MRS RODRIGUEZ VARGAS: So, what shall we call our new son?

MR RODRIGUEZ VARGAS: I don't know. Who was that guy in Greek myth who went mental and killed his Mum?

MRS RODRIGUEZ VARGAS: Orestes?

MR RODRIGUEZ VARGAS: Yeah. Orestes. Call him that.

May-19-17  catlover: I'm of the impression that Quinteros' troubles began with 12...Kth7.

MR RODRIGUEZ VARGAS: Yeah. Orestes. Call him that.> After all, my Daddy named me Eddy Pus, and that didn't stop you from marrying me.

The other popular theory is that he was born during the northeastern gales and hence named "Norestes", but the wind below his head off.

I bet black was thinking that 13. Bxf6 was forced because if 13. Bh4 Nxe4 (threatening Nxc3) 14. Nxe4 Bxh4, but in fact white could trap the bishop on h4 afterwards by playing 15. g5 h3 16. Qh5 (I think)

I'm of the impression the whole 11...g5 line is suspect, and prefer ..b5

May-19-17  catlover: <offramp> After that interchange, Mrs. Rodriguez Vargas made her husband a special dinner of wild mushrooms.
