  acirce: <Garry realised that he'd missed something in the position. Later that evening during dinner, he shouted across the restaurant to Judit, "I found it! I found it! 27 ..Ba3! It's amazing - all the tricks work for me. You should have a good look at it!">

Jul-03-06  notyetagm: <spirit> LOL means "lots of laughs" or something like that. It's what you write when you want to convey that you find something really funny.

Related expressions include LMAO (laughing my ass off) and ROFL (rolling on the floor laughing).

That link does not contain any analysis of 27 ... ♗a3. What is the winning continuation and variations?

  PhilFeeley: Not much annotation here - a disappointment, since so many pieces are left en prise here, I'm just awed at how they figured all this out. What would have happened had Garry played 27...Ba3? Would Judit have countered with Ne6? I think he escaped by the skin of his teeth. Judit was so energetic here, it's just amazing she didn't win.
Jul-03-06  spirit: thanks <notyetagm>i guess this explains why i see it everywhere!LOL!

  plang: In response to 18 h5 Kasparov would have played 18..Nxb2 19 Kxb2..Na4+ 20 Kc1..d5 with a powerful attack. A stronger continuation for White would have been 22 Qe3..Bd6 23 Nh5..e5 24 fxe..Bxe5 25 Rhf1 with compensation for the pawn; instead after Polgar's 22 Bxe4? Black took over the initiative.
