Apr-07-04  ughaibu: A knight on the rim and all that. This was a USSR semi-final.

  Honza Cervenka: Of course, 9...Nxa4 would be a huge mistake for 10. Nd5! and white wins. For example, 10...0-0 11.Nxe7+ Kh8 12.Qh5 (threatening Qxh7+ with next Rh5#) 12...h6 (12...g6 13.Qh4 with threats Qf6# and Qxa4) 13.d3 d6 14.Bxh6 etc.

  tpstar: Black to Play and Win after 11. Re2.

Hysterical indeed.
