Sep-16-06  siilarsi: Interesting tactical game, I guess it's typically Spielmann style. But I wonder what's the point with the the double checks? But I wonder what's the point with the the double checks? They seem almost neurotic... They seem almost neurotic...

Just a guess, but maybe he was trying to reach the 40th move sooner. It depends on the time control used, of course, but weren't (aren't?) games played with some amount of time for the first 40 moves, and then some additional time added after that?

Or maybe he forgot he already made the check?
