  tpstar: If 30. Rfe1 Qh2+ 31. Kf1 Qxf2#. If 30. f4 Qg3+ 31. Kh1 Bxf4 wins more material (32. Rxf4 Qxf4).
Dec-12-04  chess man: Correct. <tpstar> White's king is stuck.
Dec-12-04  Avion: A notice that amazed me...Tal was 13.
Dec-12-04  fgh: Wow, very well played for a 13 years old player.
Dec-13-04  chess man: Yes... Quite amazing.
Jul-05-05  Giancarlo: Du'h! I mean, it's Tal guys, come on! Too bad doesn't exactly depict him as 13 if you know what I mean (wink wink) ;-) ahhhh, good times...

PS, I will not stop until my campaign is succesful

Sep-21-05  jcr2001: can someone tell me the purpose of 10... Qe8?
Sep-21-05  hayton3: <jcr2001> To indirectly protect the e5 pawn when the knight goes to a5 to attack the bishop on b3.
Sep-22-05  jcr2001: ah, ok i see it. Thanks!
Oct-15-05  RonB52734: It seems to me that 14.Nxf3 is required here? First of all, the white queen's little adventure here gets her trapped and leads to all kinds of mischief (for example, isn't 18.Qe2 better?); second, the absence of a knight on f3 weakens the d4 pawn and, more to the point, leaves the eventual fatal weakness on h2; and third, isn't that why you move the queen's knight to d2 in the first place? As it turns out, white's queen's knight is left nothing better than to "eat pawn and die."
Mar-10-15  DanielHoseano: Giancarlo btw continue your campaign
May-31-15  ChessLover100: 29. Qxg5 is a mistake anyone agree?

  OhioChessFan: <CL100> not really. White was already dead lost. That just made it quicker.
