Nov-13-05  chess man: A rather simple game, but I found it enjoyable all the same.

  Mateo: 14.Qxa8? was so innocent... After 14...Nc6!, the White Queen is trapped (Topalov threatens Nc7 as well as Ba6). <15.cxb5?? allows mate in two.> After 15.Be4 Nbd4!, the White Queen is still in jail. 16.Bxc6 Nxc6, White has no defence against Ba6.
Apr-04-08  amnet: labqi, please note that after 19...Qxf1+ 20. Rxf1 Rxa8 White takes a piece with 21. b5.
