  An Englishman: Good Evening, and Good Heavens: Chessgames used White's entire name for the daily pun. Very impressive. Frightening, but impressive.

As for the game itself, Black's ...Rxf3 is a standard sacrifice in the 3...Nf6 Tarrasch French, but it's much too premature here. White's Bxh7 is a nice little counterblow, and Qh5 is even better.

Mar-26-06  ReikiMaster: Yo yo yo! After 35.Nd3 black can yell ma but still remains a rook down.

  ahmadov: I wonder why black resigned? Was one rook a very big advantage for white ;)).

To be more serious, this game is really very interesting - very good and bright ideas from both sides.

Mar-26-06  dakgootje: yes indeed, the game was very interesting to see, and both had nice ideas for attacking.
Mar-26-06  weary willy: what happened to the white player ... has games played by him / her in 1999-2001 - during which time s/he achieved a rating of 2565 - then disappeared
Mar-26-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Phenomenal play by both players! I enjoyed 14...Rxf3! but particularly 17.Bxh7+! and 20.Nf3!
Mar-26-06  backyard pawn: <ahmadov> From my limited point of view, I think that the rook is mostly irrelevant. Black's problem has to do with preventing White from Qxd7, and then the follow-up Qf7#. So Black must try to perpetual check White's king, which I don't think he can. Finally, if Black decided to use his queen to protect his bishop on d7, White simply trades down, and then his rook rules the board as the only piece remaining. As always, view all of the above with skepticism!
Mar-26-06  backyard pawn: <ahmadov> Oh! Now I see your " ;)) " so I guess you were just kidding? and I got fooled? Oh well...
Mar-26-06  LluviaSean: hahaha!! sweet game!!

  kevin86: This game shows the thin line between a sacrifice and throwing good pieces down the drain.
Mar-26-06  blingice: <kevin> I agree with you. I'd bet half of the moves in this game are unsound.

  Calli: I liked Rxf3, but he takes the pawn too soon. 16...e5! might win or at least zaw :=>
Mar-26-06  McCool: Maybe these two are friends Win Zaw Tun.
Mar-18-09  WhiteRook48: I will win!
