Feb-09-05  Granite: Black sacs the queen, only to promote a pawn 10 moves later and win the exchange while trading down everything on the board into a winning endgame. A really fun attack to watch unfold.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Why do you think White allowed the exchange of light-squared Bishops? In Benoni formations (d5, e4 vs. ...c5, ...c6), Black's Bc8 is such a stone in his shoe that he will try to play Bc8-g4xNf3. In this case, a Bishop on e2 would have prevented a lot of later trouble on the b5 and c4 squares.
Feb-09-05  BadTemper: why not 32. Rxb2?

  tpstar: 32. Rxb2 Nxb2 33. Qxb2 Nc4 34. Qc1 Nxe3 35. Qxe3 Ra3 wins the Nc3 so Black has RRB for Q. Black's Knights ruled the board, and the whole combination revolving around the passed Pawn was awesome.
