Jan-05-04  Whitehat1963: Why the resignation?
Jan-05-04  AdrianP: B is completely tied up (Q is tied to the defence of the B; R is pinned and the K is needed for the protection of the R). W is threatening to win another pawn with Rxh2+! (Kxh2 Rxf6); also g4, threatening g5, looks v. unpleasant for B and/or Nf4-d5
Jan-05-04  Whitehat1963: How does Crafty evaluate the position?

  crafty: 24. ... ♗e8 25. ♘f4 ♕b4 26. ♘e6+ ♔g8 27. e5   (eval 4.57; depth 15 ply; 750M nodes)
Feb-03-04  Orcinus: I'm not fond of 13...Nc4. Besides a bad bishop for a good knight exchange, black destroys a Queenside pawn storm leaving himself with a double and iso. It does open the b file. Something like 13...Bxh6 14 Qxh6 c5, 15 Nb3 b4 16 Nd5 Nxd5 17 exd5 may be worth looking at.
Nov-25-04  kostich in time: Acording to Reinfeld and Fine, Vidmar was in poor form in this tournament..this game proves it.Interestingly, the two doctors played each other only twice intheir long careers.They were both polymaths-renaissance men of the chess board.

Schiffers vs Lasker, 1895

Sep-19-05  iron maiden: <Orcinus> I don't think much good comes of the pawn storm anyway; Black won't be able to give it enough support once the g7-bishop gets exchanged.
