Apr-29-09  mobiegobie: Grandmaster DvD magazine:issue 10 has the rook by move 25 already on d8. which makes whites Bishop to b7 move have more thia an error?
Sep-25-09  SetNoEscapeOn: You are right, as I just saw the video. Unfortunately, I don't know when the error occurred.

By move 30, the position is correct.
