  OhioChessFan: Svidler could have resigned after his 19th move.
Feb-04-06  dakgootje: <OhioChessFan>Yes indeed, did he just miss blacks move or what was he thinking else?
Feb-04-06  EmperorAtahualpa: 19...Nc2, what a simple forking trick!

Also, 40...Qxh3 is a nice shot.

Feb-04-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Nice pun, albeit a little predictable. :)

  kevin86: White had those beautiful queenside pawns,but alas,he never moved them! Black took advantage of his exchange up to dominate the open board.

Knights are CERTAINLY lesser than rooks on an open board.

Oct-03-06  syracrophy: Sorry but I didn't get it. Is <soberknight> Jesper Hall?
Feb-22-09  WhiteRook48: what are you talking about?
Apr-29-09  WhiteRook48: 19 Qe3??
