Feb-26-03  dippel: Wow, a queen sacrifice 30.Rxf6!! by the Danish GM Peter Heine Nielsen and he wins the game with yet another sacrifice 47. Bxf7!
Mar-13-06  BadKnight: nice game!
Mar-13-06  blingice: <soberknight: This man has an excellent Nielsen rating, even though I've never seen him on TV.>

<soberknight> gets another...

Mar-13-06  itz2000: great play by white!
Mar-13-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Great game! I would've never thought White would be able to promote that pawn after 30.Rxf6. This must have taken quite some calculation! Very impressive.

What is a Nielsen rating?

Mar-13-06  eunuch lust: A Nielsen rating is a measurement of roughly how many viewers a particular tv show gets.
Mar-13-06  zhentil: <emperor> I think the probability that white calculated this to the pawn promotion is zero. The sacrifice (queen for rook and knight) is minimal, and white obviously got a lot of play after it. This (along with the meandering in moves 36-40 (time trouble, I presume)) points to an intuitive sacrifice.
Mar-13-06  dakgootje: didnt expect that white could win after trading the queen of for the knight and rook, but white played nice and seemed much better indeed as the game went on.

  kevin86: A fair game with a weak pun-i guess it's Monday.

The a-pawn gets the last laugh!

  kevin86: Little response to this one---must be bad ratings. lol
Mar-31-06  PolishPentium: 47...Rxf2+ 48 RxR 48...QxR+
Would that not possibly lead to White drawing by perpetual check? Black's e-pawn helps keep the White king around to be subjected to queen checks. Again, as usual, PP is seeking elucidation from you more knowledgeable folks...
Nov-20-13  Xeroxx: a-pawn + rooks on the 7th did the trick.
